The entire game is set on this mysterious island in the Dragon's Triangle, off the coast of Japan.

When the research vessel Endurance, under Captain Conrad Roth explores the area in search of the Lost Fleet of Kublai Khan, Lara suggests to explore a temple on Yamati built for the shaman queen Himiko. The Endurance is hit by a storm and the crew is stranded on the island. As Lara later learns it is not uncommon for storms to appear the exact moment a ship, or plane, approaches the island. [1]
