Goku’s house is located in Paozu-yama (Paozu Mountain). Paozu is the Japanese pronunciation for a Chinese style of bread stuffed with meat or vegetables. I maintain that Paozu-yama’s appearance is inspired by Guilin, the famous karst mountains of China.”

Goku’s home is located on Paozu-yama (‘Stuffed Buns Mountain’). Paozu is the Japanese pronunciation for a Chinese style of stuffed bun filled with meat or vegetables. I argue Paozu-yama’s appearance is inspired by Guìlín, China’s famous karst mountains. #DragonBallCultureDaily pic.twitter.com/Obp9OxlCqe
