    The ones in this batch are all really good aside from sei.

    Hokkaido and Tohoku this time, I guess

    Merlin: Hokkaido, a lavender field in Furano. I guess because the lavender fields resemble his flowers.
    Abigail: Aomori, Lake Towada.
    Jack: Akita, namahage festival
    Ushi and Benkei: Iwate, they're eating soba. Iwate is where Yoshitsune fled to after the Genpei War, apparently

    Anastasia: Yamagata, Mount Zaou. Chosen because of snow formations that resemble ghosts that appear in winter, presumably a reference to Viy
    Shonagon: Miyagi, Matsushima. I believe the bridge she's standing on was destroyed in the 2011 earthquake.
    Shinshin: Fukushima. I have no idea where this is or what he's doing, sorry.

    Benkei and Ushi having two different artists in the same image like this looks really weird.

    "Chan-Mas"? Is that supposed to be a cute way to say Mas(ter)-chan?

    Yeah, it's what Shonagon calls her Master. I believe it's meant to be some kind of modern slang.

    It's 100% Shonagon-original.

    Maybe related maybe not, but the lavender's meaning in hanakotoba is distrust.

    The main reason for Abby to be in Lake Towada seems to be this. Though I think that they could've made it more clear by using a picture that shows better how reflective that lake is. Anyways, aside from Lake Towada, Aomori also lots of other spooky and/or religious stuff that could fit with the Foreigner. The list includes a train station built over a clay figure, the Shinto temple with 1000 gates, a giant Buddha statue, the Osorezan (literally "Mt. Fear"), staircases in the middle of a national highway, the grave of Jesus Christ and a pyramid. Honestly, the grave of Christ is the location that fits best with Abby, but I guess they vetoed it as controversy-dodging move.

    Jack in Oga's Namahage was already explained enough.

    Iwate is also where Yoshitsune lived his childhood.

    Yeah, Zaou's frost-covered trees do have the kaijuu look to them. Didn't think of connecting that to Viy. Btw, some Yamagata people are mad because the frost-covered trees are actually in Miyagi.

    Yes, that's the Fukuura Bridge, destroyed in the earthquake then fixed by Taiwanese donation, and now turned into a symbol of the bonds between Japan and Taiwan. But what matters here is not the bridge to Matsushima, but Matsushima itself, because of The Diary of Matsushima. The Diary of Matsushima is a fictional traveller's journal that someone wrote 2 centuries after Sei Shounagon's lifetime and then published claiming to have actually found one of Shounagon's unpublished diaries. Their claim went unchallenged for centuries until people started noticing major contradictions between this and the claimed timeframes on Shounagon's actual works, so nowadays it's common knowledge that The Diary of Matsushima is a fraud.

    And Mugenkyou roughly means "misty illusion ravine", which fits Yan Qing's aesthetic to a T.

    Note: As far as I can tell doing stupid poses on the Mugenkyo Ferry is an Instagram... thing.
    Of course Shinsin would be an Instagram guy
