Vol City (ボルシティ Boru Shiti?) is the setting for Garo: Yami o Terasu Mono. It is an independent city-state located in the middle of a vast forest, a futuristic metropolis built around a volcano. The city is a hotspot for Madō Horror (魔導ホラー Madō Horā?) activity and is policed by a privatized task force known as SG1 (Security Guardian 1), which is owned by the Kaneshiro Group (金城グループ Kaneshiro Gurūpu?). The Kaneshiro family has a huge hand in the economic and social development of Vol City, so much so that the Kaneshiro Group logo is seen everywhere and citizens often refer to the city as "Kaneshiro City."
