The sun was shaded on this cool and calming day on the scorched lands around Nikkousato almost feeling like spring rebirth, causign the ambient temperature to be a very comfortable and gentle mid seventies. An avian cacophony of chirps and calls echoed throughout the valley that laid beside Nikkousato, the ever rushing northern river adding to the overall ambiance of the serene beauty the desert could hold when given a new lens. Along the bank of the northern river that ran from Gekkousato, a small beach had formed, and It was here that his house was built. It was made of clay and wood, and is octagonal in shape with a steeped roof lending to a more walled gazebo like appearance then a normal sun village home. Its walls were painted a deep cerulean blue with red accents and shale colored shingles.
A large rosewood door framed the only entrance into the home, its iron accents beautiful and functional. Two windows, one on the first level, and the other near the top of the steeple somewhere on the second levels loft. Its oriental make gave credence to a temple like feel when observing it. Inside was a very standard home design, smoothed stone flooring, an open fire pit cooking station laid dead center in the room, with a sink and cabinet system on the wall with the window, sitting pillows stacked neatly in one of the far corners, and a wooden man post laid under the loft used for training. At the rear of the home was a ladder that led up to the loft levels sleeping area, its design comfortable but very simplistic or rustic like the rest of the home. It was here that Genkumaru resided and awoke in the early morning to prepare for his day of reconnaissance in the surrounding area of the village.
He had started with the high bluffs and recorded their topography with special chakra infused maps, that recorded what a shinobi had seen if used. These were provided to him when he had accepted the mission and as his day went on he saw just how valuable they really were. They directly converted the images he saw when touched, into a topographical map of the area he was in. This allowed for the best visualization of elevation changes as well as geographical conundrums, as several semi hidden caves and features would become perfectly represented on the map scrolls. Next was the Savannah flats and watering hole that welcomed any and all of the locale fauna into its fold, nurturing them and continuing the life cycle in perpetuity. After that he captured the salt flats, rolling dunes, and lastly the area around Nikkousato proper, giving a fully detailed representation of the surrounding region. The entire activity took much of the day and nearly exhausted Gen by the time it was over.
Knowing he had to both eat and turn in the map scrolls, he began the arduous trek back to the village from the high point he had performed his observation on. The descent from the cliff he had used was rocky and uneven and he almost slipped several times during it. Alas he was able to reach solid ground and continued on towards the village at full speed. His hunger was urging him forward in a rapid fury. When he finally reached the villages gates, he would beeline it for the HQ to deliver the documents, and then sought out his favorite Donburi shop, where he purchased a brown rice, spring onion, bamboo shoot and takoyaki bowl to chow down on, during the slightly lengthy trek home.
