Mura Higashi Chushin (村東中心; East Hub Village) is one of the Hub Villages surrounding Otosan Uchi in Rokugan. It lies on the Bay of the Golden Sun.

East Hub Village is notorious as a town heavily populated by ronin and mercenaries, usually looking for employment by the samurai visiting the Imperial city. East Hub is the smallest of the four towns, and most activity centers around a large teahouse called the House of the Green Koi – founded by an Imperial Herald – and a neighboring sake house called the Crimson Blossom. Once the Tortoise Clan comes into existence, it maintains a nominal presence within the village and hires a ronin otokodate called the East Wind to protect its assets. After the fall of Otosan Uchi, the East Wind tries to protect the town as best it can on its own, eventually gaining patronage from the Unicorn Clan for this purpose. Later in the twelfth century, the Mantis Clan is granted control of the town’s port; they use it, among other things, to bring in the supplies for building their semi-secret holding called Houritsu Mura.
