Dragon Ball Wiki

Gengoro Island (ゲンゴロウ島 Gengorō-tō) is an island on Earth, located east of Kame House and General Blue's Camp. It is where Penguin Village is located on. It is also Dragon World's version of the real world country Japan.[1]


Gengoro Island map

Gengoro Island is mostly composed by grassy plains, but some hills and small lakes can also be found here.

In the Dr. Slump special chapter "Kick the Can", Senbei Norimaki is seen running all over a map of Gengoro Island searching through the other towns of Gengoro Island for Arale and Gatchan. The various locations noted on the map other than Penguin Village are: Dumbtown, Needwife, Overthere, Mountain, Land I, Bigshore, Nowheresville, Bigtown, Poop, Station, Boonyville, Fartown, Harbor, and ABC, however, it is likely these are intended to be joke names and not actual town located there, as one of the towns listed is "Stop reading these". Several towns on Gengoro Island are mentioned in the manga, including Ageha Town, Monshiro Town, Canary Village, and Pelican Village.

In Dragon Ball, after successfully escaping from the Pirate Cave, Goku pursued General Blue and they both ended up at Gengoro Island.

Many creatures mostly based off Japanese fairy tales live there. Wonder Island is notably the home to P-Man, a fairy, flying fish, monkeys, a hang-gliding gorilla, a witch, vampires, dinosaurs, an angel, frogs, and a dragon.

China is a large eastern nation that exists in both the real world and in Dr. Slump. It is surrounded by a great wall and one of the villages known as Plub Pah-Tui (鍔北弊 Tsubapeppei) is the homeland of the Tsun family and was where the Reh Tsu Goh was built and launched from before landing in Penguin Village in Age 748. Sometime after Age 750, Tsuruten Tsun and Tsuntsunodanoteiyugo Tsun moved back here.

Plub Pah-Tui

It is possible that the Eastern continent in the Dragon Ball series is China due to its similar distance to Penguin Village on the Dragon World map as well as the locations such as Mount Paozu, Fire Mountain and the Diablo Desert having Chinese based scenery and the residents of those areas wearing Chinese clothing.
