Chon'sin (Japanese: ソンシン Sonshin) is a kingdom in Fire Emblem Awakening. Chon'sin is located on Valm, however, like Rosanne, its exact location is never specified as it was absorbed into the Valm empire. The kingdom is possibly in a coastal area, as Say'ri mentions the kingdom's dietary staple is seafood.[1] Judging by the characters native to Chon'sin their culture and dress is inspired by Japan, also making the country aesthetically similar to Hoshido.

Along with heavy favor of seafood, tea is also a highly regarded part of Chon'sin's culture, and preparation and consumption of it is taken very seriously.[2]

In terms of foliage, Chon'sin seems to differ from the rest of Valm and Ylisse, as Say'ri's painting of cherry blossom trees is seen as something foreign and unusual.[3]

The kingdom itself also seems to have reverence for Naga and Tiki, as Say'ri speaks to Tiki in a very respectful manner, calling the manakete "my lady".[4] The relationship is also somewhat parallel to Myrrh's and Saleh's in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones.
