IntroductionEdit

Gintama is set in a period of relative peace after Edo was invaded by the Amanto and the inhabitants had no choice but to accept these new outlanders as their new neighbours. It depicts Edo after it had been conquered by the aliens, and how it looks after they brought modern-day technology into a samurai country of ages past. Most of the story in Gintama is set in Edo itself, or in the sky above it, but the reader is also taken a few other places for various reasons.

EdoEdit

Edo is the fictional city in which the protagonists of Gintama live and work. In real-life, Edo was the name of the Japanese capital Tokyo, before it was renamed in 1868, when the shogunate came to an end.

Kabuki District かぶき町Edit

Kabuki District かぶき町 is a district in Edo in which most of the main characters live and work. It is ruled by the 4 Devas of Kabuki District かぶき町四天王: Otose お登勢, Kujaku Hime Kada 孔雀姫 華陀, Saigou Tokumori 西郷 特盛 and Doromizu Jirochou 泥水 次郎長. However, tension is tight between the 4 of them, and a war would soon break out over the supremacy in the district.
