The Underworld (地底 chitei, underground) is a world beneath the surface of Gensokyo, and consists of many regions. It is the main focus of the plot of Subterranean Animism. It's suggested that it's a separate world from Gensokyo.

General Information

The Underworld is made up of several different layers. The highest one, which is still very far below ground, is known as Old Hell, which was once Hell long ago, before the Yamas decided to relocate due to overpopulation. The Old Capital and the Palace of the Earth Spirits are located on this layer, supposedly at the center of what used to be Hell.

Below that, accessed via a hole in the courtyard of the Palace of the Earth Spirits, is the Remains of Blazing Hell, which produces the heat for Old Hell. Below even that lies the Nuclear Furnace, seen in Stage 6 of Subterranean Animism, which is kept alight by Utsuho Reiuji, and functions the main power source for the rest of the Underworld. Even lower is the Hell of Blood Pools, where the emotions of countless organisms congeal as blood that can be perceived as oil.

Underground Geyser Center

The Underground Geyser Center is also located below ground, at the foot of the Youkai Mountain. This experimentation center set up by Kanako Yasaka and Suwako Moriya connects to the Nuclear Furnace.
