The village resort used to be a retreat for Earth Kingdom monks. However, this changed when the territory came under the control of the Fire Nation.
After the Fire Nation was defeated in the disastrous Siege of the North, Prince Zuko and his uncle Iroh floated on a simple raft for three weeks until reaching this village. Here, they hid from the Fire Nation while treating themselves to the luxurious spas. Zuko and Iroh were recognized as royalty, and given the full respect of the spa staff, despite having little money to pay. While Iroh spoiled himself, Zuko spent his time dwelling on his banishment, as it was the third anniversary since he was exiled from his homeland.
Zuko's sister, Princess Azula, tracked Zuko and Iroh to this village on her mission to arrest them as traitors of the Fire Nation. Needless to say, Zuko was not pleased to see her, but Azula insisted she was there for peaceful purposes. She smoothly convinced Zuko that his father now valued his family once again, and that he wished for Zuko and Iroh to come home. Desperate to return home, Zuko agreed to go with Azula. Iroh did as well, but was highly suspicious of Azula, as he knew she and Ozai had little regard for family.
Zuko and Iroh met Azula the next day while boarding her ship, however, her true intentions were revealed. Iroh was able to defeat the princess, and he and Zuko quickly fled to safety.
Azula later came before the villagers, held up a wanted poster, and proclaimed that if any of them were discovered harboring the treacherous duo, Zuko and Iroh, they would face the Fire Lord's punishment.
The main resort is built on pipes and several large rocks in the center of the Su Oku River, and is connected to both shorelines by large wooden bridges. The main spa holds several massage parlors and relaxing pools, while the shorelines are home to small cottages for guests as well as many natural hot springs. The village is located in a mountainous region near the ocean, where it hosts its own wharf. West of the spa is a large waterfall where the river meets the ocean. The area is surrounded by gorgeous cherry blossoms, creating a lasting appeal for its visitors. Prior to Fire Nation occupation, the area was used as a retreat by Earth Kingdom monks.
Surrounded by beautiful scenery and home to some of the finest spas in the Earth Kingdom, this resort town is a true paradise. This is a place where travelers can receive relaxing massages and other treatments that soothe aching muscles. The masseurs here are very friendly and the town offers free robes to visitors. This is one of the most welcoming locations in the entirety of the Fire Nation colonies.
