Grandpa and grandma told me this beach was beautiful when they were small. But after the Shinra built that city above, the sun stopped shining here, and the water got polluted...Priscilla
Under Junon is a town in the Final Fantasy VII series. The city of Junon was constructed next to the village, enveloping the village in its shadow and polluting the waters. Its relationship to Junon is similar to the relationship between the Midgar Slums and Midgar's plate.
An elevator carries people up to Junon on foot. A tower on the Dolphin Offing beach also leads up to Junon's Airport, although a high voltage runs through it.
The village is never referred to as "Under Junon" or by any other name in the game. Its name is only used in menus. It is clear in the Japanese version that "Under Junon" is used as a proper noun and not just a statement of its relation to the military city. It is unclear if Junon was once the name for this town.
Following a Shinra leak suggesting Sephiroth is heading for Junon Harbor, Cloud and party travel on foot to Under Junon. They find Junon is on high alert for Rufus's inaugaration ceremony as the new president of Shinra, and so need a plan to covertly enter. After saving a girl named Priscilla from the Bottomswell, she lets Cloud use her dolphin to get to the upper city. Later Priscilla remembers that Junon Harbor can be reached by dolphin and the rest of the party are ferried there while Cloud navigates enemy territory.
Under Junon is located to the West on Gaia's Eastern continent.

Behinds the scenesEdit
The BradyGames guide mixes up the area names and refers to Upper and Lower Junon as "Lower Junon", Junon Branch as "Upper Junon", and Under Junon as "Junon Harbor".
Musical themes Edit
The music that plays in Under Junon in Final Fantasy VII is "Ahead On Our Way" (旅の途中で, Tabi no Tochū De?). After resting as part of the plot, "Rufus' Welcoming Ceremony" (ルーファウス歓迎式典, Rūfausu Kangei Shikiten?), a fanfare played for Rufus's inauguration, is head from the town.
