>It would be easy enough to go straight through to the Daitengu Constellation, it is something of a middling trip. Your other options include:
>The Sake Way: Middling Trip; The runs through the night sky, and is known to be the abode of some celestial gods.
>The Sun: Close, but you doubt there's anything of note up there now.
>The Moon: Distant, very probably a terrible idea
>A Tengu star: These roam over the night sky rather than following a fixed path. Difficult to chart a course to, poorly understood.
>A Different constellation: There's a lot of these. Specify distance wanted, a particular youkai, or a particular feature desired.
>A Detested Star: These come and go at regular intervals; humans know them as comets. Extremely challenging to intercept, and probably not a great idea. Detested stars tend to interfere with the celestial tapestry that youkai are connected to, and no one likes that.

>None of them really go directly there.

>That should be extremely feasible. The next question is when you want to launch.

> Is Koakuma still with us? If so, what is she doing? Could she contribute to our course plotting considering that she has knowledge from the SDM Library?

>Koa seems to have invited herself in to linger around the workshop, currently sprawled out in one of your chairs. You have no idea if she'd be good at this, it involves a fair amount of arithmetic, getting the angles right and everything.
