Tong-Nou ( To N No U) is the fictional island on which the game Eastern Mind: The Lost Souls of Tong-Nou takes place. The island is located "far to the east", floating above the oceans of Earth. Its appearance is that of a giant green head.

Another important location is Hou-ang, the Phantom Marketplace, but it isn't a land.
