) is a village which appears in Suikoden
. Kaku is a small village located on the east bank of Lake Toran
Kaku is known as the town where fishermen gather and has a noted reputation for its sordid characters. The fishermen who reside here are said to be very tanned due to their outdoors work. Toran Castle is visible from the village and before becoming the base for the Toran Liberation Army there were a host of rumours about the castle being haunted. It's possible to take boat rides out to the castle.
The small town itself bustles with many businesses, including inns and blacksmiths. Gamblers such as Tai Ho and Gaspar spend their time rolling dice in the basement of one of the town's bars.
The claiming of the castle by the Toran Liberation Army opened up more fishing opportunities, with the fog around the castle dispersing.
