Lakanaba is a town in Dragon Quest IV, Torneko's hometown and the starting point of Chapter 3. Torneko lives here with his wife and child, working part-time at the local weapons shop until he has earned enough capital to leave and open his own business. Far to the north of Endor, it is located across a narrow channel to the east of Vrenor.
