Information
Plane Kamigawa
Part of Jukai

Boseiju, Who Shelters All (Japanese: せいじゅ; literally "Sacred Mother Tree") is the oldest tree of the Jukai forest, on the plane of Kamigawa.

This great cedar was already two thousand years old when the Kami War began. It was the embodied spirit of the magnificent Jukai Forest, and its trunk and limbs were strung with shimenawa ropes (lengths of laid rice straw or hemp rope used for ritual purification) and nusa (zigzagged stripes of paper) to mark its sacredness and the presence of the great kami inside it.

Nearby Boseiju, stood Okina, the greatest temple of the Jukai.[1]
