In the old days, Ojouaÿe was a small, outlying village with a small kitty-bazaar. Then the area was turned into a camp for the workers, who first cleared away the forests to make way for the construction of a new city, and then built the railroad. Now the line has become the Train to the End of the Earth. Within the city limits, filled mostly with one- and two-story houses, there is a port. Its a port where you can often see coarse ships and snow-blue yachts cruising along the harbor.
