Holly Heights City Hall
The center of government! Or a nice location for functions. City hall is full of offices and archives, though not particularly useful. If there were elections, the ballots would be located here, as well as various departments for dealing with the public. A place that would be comfortable for politicians.
Owner:

Holly Heights Court of Justice
The institution's main functions are to review and judge suspicious criminal activity, accusations of crime, pleads of innocence, and appeals. Other functions include settle legal disputes submitted to it by the Holly Height residents and business owners and to provide advisory opinions on legal questions submitted. The building is fortified to withstand many natural disasters and has much free rooms for other organizations to use for meeting purposes. The building also offers drivers education.

Holly Heights Farm
A small farm that deals with livestock more than crops. Home to no more than two horses, five cows, ten chickens and a dozen sheep at the moment, as well as three sheepdogs. There's also a tool shed and a small cottage where the caretakers can rest if they have time.

The Holly Heights Library
The Holly Heights Library is housed in a sprawling old building complete with large windows and of course, rows upon rows of books: from novels to histories, do-it-yourself psychoanalysis to knitting for dummies, you're sure to find something to catch your fancy. Unable to find something? Ask one of the helpful librarians wandering around or try your luck with one of the computers. There is plenty of study space in the great hall, as well as cozy study rooms with over-stuffed armchairs, warm draperies and polished wood tables. If communal studying isn't your thing, there are chairs dotted throughout the library in little corners stuffed full of books for your solitary enjoyment. To keep you in the library for as long as possible, there is a small counter located in the basement serving a variety of juices, caffeinated drinks and cold foods.

Holly Riverside Fishery
A river that runs just on the edge of the housing district, close enough for anyone who would want to swim, fish or use the water for other means. A small shack can be found on the bank of it where residents can get fresh fish from the river.
Owner: Badr ([personal profile] adoringdaddy)
Employees:

The Hospital
The building to the right of the path is the hospital, same in state and stature though two stories taller. When a character dies, they arrive in the hospital, on any floor in any room. Nothing is in the building anymore, save some beds and clipboards. They can make their way out easily. Hopefully they don't get lost in the forest coming back, though.

The Jail
On the outskirts of the houses is a lane that leads straight into the rugged forest that surrounds it on one side. Following it can be tricky, but at the end of the little trail is a clearing with two buildings. On the left is the jail. A signboard stands out front, completely worn down so that its name has no visibility. The jail itself is square and five stories tall, gray and stone but becoming over-grown by mosses and vines. Out back is a small, graveled exercise area. All windows have no glass but they are thickly barred. All doors are locked and it is impossible to enter...unless you have the key of course.

The Landlord's House
Behind both the jail and hospital is a thick forest yet again. Much like the original journey, there is another path, but there is a bit more difficulty in finding it. The path is hidden, overgrown, and decently long and twisting, and most people don't manage to make it all the way due to either frustration or getting lost in the undergrowth. If one does go through to the end, they'll find themselves in a large clearing, holding an expansive garden and ornate, old-fashioned house. Two stories, the house is made of old grey stones with wooden shutters, and is almost like a cottage, if it wasn't so big. Approach the door and grab the handle? You'll see black and wake up in front of your house, no recollection of having walked back home.

Daily Holly Heights
Daily Holly Heights is your neighborhood that just so happens to mirror Daily Yamazaki in almost every way possible. But the most important thing is that it does indeed carry the signature Yamazaki baked goods that this chain is known for. Everything from magazines, manga comic books, soft drinks, onigiri, bento, etc. could be found in this neighborhood konbini. So please stop in at your convenience, in true convenience fashion the shop will be open 24/7!

Hikawa Shrine
A modest Shinto shrine, named after Rei Hino's home shrine in the Azabu-jūban district of Tokyo. Fortune telling services are offered by the miko when available, and talismans can be purchased during ordinary business hours. But primarily, the shrine is intended as a haven for those who wish to train in their own individual sense of spirituality. Should one wish to remain secluded for more intense training, there are rooms available for short periods, with payment and length of stay to be negotiated with the acting head priestess. For ordinary everyday visitors, the grounds are always open and freely available.

Maritime Cafe!
Attached next to the Orchid & Lotus shop in ... complete co-dependent fashion, is an extremely small coffeeshop. Although attached to the flowershop, it isn't affiliated to it. Haru just needs help letting go. Here Haru will whip up anything from teas, coffees, to hot chocolates, even fresh, natural drinks--serving them from a window. Please be nice to the cat that sleeps on the windowsill, and leave a tip!

Orchid & Lotus
A small and quaint establishment, the Orchid & Lotus is not just a flower shop. While it harbours a wide room where the flowers are on display and the greenhouse is at the back, it also holds a welcoming (although tight-spaced) communal sitting area to have a drink (tea/booze) and read, or whatever activity will encourage the passing of time. It's a two-man operation, and it's clear that it is; the service is friendly and business is slow, but it's the place to go for some quiet time and to have an amicable chat either with Prez behind the counter or Makoto by the flowers.

St. Fiacre's Cathedral
A Christian/Catholic denominated place of worship. Services are held every Wednesday night and Sunday morning. Holidays will also be heavily celebrated here for those of the denominations faith. The church is extremely ornate, both inside and out. NPCs run the church but any position can be taken over by someone with (or without) the qualifications. They won't, though, have any control over the events and holidays held inside. Worshiping priests and pastors, while NPCs, will still preach...sort of. They read straight from the bible and do no hymnals or speeches. Because of this, services are almost always short and not by the book as they are in most churches. The church is located four blocks southwest of the town square.
Employees:

Town Square
In the middle of the street-filled area of the housing district is a grassy area holding a pavilion with benches, an open area, an a bulletin board. The bulletin board will contaisn certain pieces of news that will randomly appear or anything a character chooses to stick up there. Town meetings and other events can and possibly will be held here.

Various Parks
Every four or five blocks, there will be a small park, complete with play ground, swings, a bench or two, and a short walking path. There is a much larger park located in the pleasure districts, but for quick jogs or a cheap date, these are easier and closer.

Wild Side Petting Zoo
It's an exotic petting zoo with an abundance of animals, but nothing too overwhelming.

In one pen, there are the sheep, goats, chicken, and rabbits for the smaller children to play with and feed. In another pen are the larger animals, which include an ostrich, kangaroo, zebra, and a giraffe that smaller children with adult supervision and older children can enjoy riding with the assistance of one of the animal helpers

Then there's a small pond with frogs, fish, turtles, and ducklings for everyone to enjoy.

There's also a baby tiger that can be played with under supervision.

There are separate areas featuring different degrees of difficulty (Cactuars, Grats, Mesmerize, Marlboros, T-Rexaur, and Ruby Dragons, amongst others), all of which imitate the natural habitats the monsters come from; most notably, woodland and plains. The first area appears to be more staged and straightforward, with paths that area easy to follow. Other levels have terrain that becomes increasingly rugged and more difficult to navigate, however.

There are safe areas on each level, which hold medical supplies to take care of any ailments or injuries they may have incurred as well as a quick route out of the building.

The Grande Fountain
This large fountain rests in the very center of the Pleasure Gate. With three tiers and statues perched on its sides, it's quite a presence in the city. Coins can be tossed in, though it serves no real purpose as of right now. Surrounding the fountain is a large tiled park way with benches and maps. At night, large ball lamps turn on to light the area. Walkways start here and branch off to walk around the gate and taking certain ones will take travels to certain city hot spots. On Fridays and weekends, an NPC will do tram runs along them for sight seeing and fast travel.

Hinanawi Colosseum
In the Pleasure district, there is already a large park, and quite a nice one it is too. However, right next to it, there will appear a completely mystifying arena - complete with spectator stands and other facilities (obviously showers, a pool, a pretty sweet sauna, target range, equipment storehouse, and various deathtraps) in an adjoined medium-sized building (there is also an entrance/exit to the building through the tunnel into the arena itself, making for a dramatic entrance for any scuffles that need solving.)

But so it doesn't get boring, there are also a few snags. The 'deathtraps' in question present themselves as an utterly impossible series of tasks including rotating cylinders of death and spike-filled shields coming at you from both directions along with booby-trapped arrows and a ridiculous puzzle where you place a flimsy cotton scarf on a high pedestal to open the door to the next level and the final challenge of two swinging blades ready to give you a flesh wound. This is the only route to said sauna. There is no other way in. There's a hidden door out, but you won't know it's there until you're already inside.

Thankfully, everything is made out of padded fabric and plastic, so it is an utterly pointless challenge. However, Tenshi will preside over anyone wishing to take the test and send them away if they get hit, mainly because it's funny.

Hollyday Theme Park
A large recreation complex, appearing much like a fantasy city. The park's major theme is fantasy itself, arranged in a colorful way to have the imagination be happily inspired. Hollyday is based from South Korea's two amusement parks, Everland and Lotte World, two perfect places for Korean dramas's love stories to become reality.

There are four districts within the amusement park's range: Gala, Voyage, Reverie, and Utopia. The districts are arranged in a circle, with a heavenly castle and fountain connected in the center plaza. Soft, vibrant colors are always present around the location, even through the night.

The sight of hot air balloons, running roller coasters, spinning cotton candy, pleasing area music, adorable gifts and prizes, and the overall lively aura will surely please the park's guests. Whether it is bringing a family member, a good friend, that special one, or simply yourself over, Hollyday is here to accommodate endless entertainment for everyone.

If you've come with a loved one or a group of friends, we recommend wearing matching hairbands or headgears! This is a popular dating trend in Korea and Japan, where couples pick and wear a pair together, like so. Usually, they decide together, and then they help each other put the accessory on.

Incredibly Exclusive Old Guy Club
The exterior of the club is pretty boring; a simple brick building with nondescript windows and a plain wooden door at the entrance. There are two signs on the door, one proclaiming the name, and another carrying the opposite message: "Everyone Welcome". Inside can be found wood paneling and leather upholstery, fireplaces and bookshelves, the very image of an upscale members-only club. Chess and other board games are available, smoking is allowed, and there's a fully-stocked bar, as well as a few snacks on hand.

Aside from the main lounge area, the Club boasts a library, small meeting rooms, a billiards room, a steam room, a hot tub, and a couple of simple bedrooms for the occasional "in the doghouse with my spouse" situation. A special membership is required to stay overnight, book the meeting rooms, or loll around the private hot tub area, but this not-really-exclusive club is open for guests in the bar.

Its grounds are an ideal place for peaceful contemplation and meditation, including an open courtyard, bell, and various halls within the temple itself. There's also a cemetery behind it but there supposedly aren't any bodies actually buried there.

Otherworldly
Otherworldly is a hot new nightclub/lounge that's out of this world! Complete with comfy seating, fluorescent lighting, a fully stocked bar, and a fast food menu, this is your one-stop place to chill from dusk till dawn. There's also plenty of entertainment! Flatscreen televisions play scifi/horror movies constantly (other genres available on request - great for themed parties!), and there's a full board and pieces set up for games of Battleshots. There's no real dress code, and only very few rules. Basically: be excellent to each other, and party on dudes! Further information, including the current menu and services available, can be found here.

Shipwrecks
Don't let the name fool you- all of the stock carried by this boat trader by the docks at Evergreen Lake are in perfect condition. Aside from boats, ranging from rowboats to speedboats to yachts, Shipwrecks also sells fishing equipment, boating equipment, kayaks, and anchors of all sizes. Boats and kayaks can be purchased or rented out.

Inkberry Elementary School
The smallest of the four schools, Inkberry sits in what could be called a valley in the furthest part of the gate from the outside, near the center that connects all the gates together, and houses grades K-6. It's not quite decrepit looking, but still has some obvious signs of wear and tear. Not too many NPCs roam around here, but don't let that fool you. They'll still do whatever it takes to keep kids in school, including detention, calls home, and even chore duty.
Teachers:

Honey Maid Middle School
Slightly bigger, Honey Maid is in the middle of the Gate and holds grades 6-8. Though slightly larger, there are still few NPCs and classes consist mostly of automated, sermon-esque lectures that would perhaps go right over the average middle-schoolers head. The grounds are plentiful in size, though lunch break is only one hour long and no free periods are allowed, so it's rather a waste.

Altaciere High School
This school is by far the largest, though a lot of its rooms go unused. Hosting grades 9-12, the school holds a lot of the teenage population of Holly Heights. The high school offers a driving class for those getting their license, but most other classes are run by NPCs that seem to be rather scattered and preach gibberish more than teach. While not the most academically inclined school, it is a place with a large grounds, perfect for field days and outdoor dances.

Indoor Pool
Founded by the Altaciere High School Swim Club, the Holly Heights Indoor Pool is a facility located a block from the high school. It includes an eight-lane, 25m long heated (25–28°C) pool with depths ranging from 1 to 3m, and two locker rooms (one male and one female). The swim club meets after school thrice weekly, and select weekends; however, feel free to contact the manager or captain to gain access otherwise.

Emily Brumer University
This small university really doesn't teach much. Those that do go (it's pretty easy to walk in and out freely) will be subjected to NPCs with limited knowledge base and classes that last thirty minutes at the longest. Hope you weren't looking into getting a degree!
