You don’t understand how excited I am that I figured out what country Otoyomegatari is taking place in!! They never specified, but they did specify that it was taking place in Central Asia, and that they lived near the Caspian Sea. Two of the three countries that border the Caspian Sea are considered Central Asia (the other’s Russia), which are Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan.
It’s definitely Turkmenistan, as their traditional women dress in heavily embroidered clothing much like the characters in Otoyomegatari. The bridal wear is also virtually identical. The traditional wear and hair-styles of Kazakhstan look nothing like what you see in the series, and I believe they once stated they were Turkic people. I have a feeling everyone already knows all of this but, in case you didn’t, here you go.
Thank you thank you thank you!! I didn’t have the time to look it up myself, so it’s great that I finally know 😊
