Bitchu is a province in Total War: Shogun 2.
Bitchu is a rather poor province situated on the south coast of Honshu. Towards the end of the 16th century, it would become a significant stronghold for the Mori, protecting their homelands to the west from incursions by the mighty warlord, Oda Nobunaga. Toyotomi Hideyoshi was leading an Oda invasion of Bitchu when Oda Nobunaga was betrayed and killed in Kyoto.
Bitchu is below average in terms of wealth, with poor soil fertility and no specialty or resource, though its port can be useful for staging invasions of Shikoku.
