The 10th Division's barracks.

The barracks houses the living quarters of the division's soldiers, as well as the working offices of the captain and lieutenant. During Raian's first reign as captain, the captain and lieutenant shared an office,[1], however, during Isshin and Hitsugaya's reigns, the captain and lieutenant offices were separate. This continued into Raian's second tenure as captain.

The division also has an outpost in the Human World, commissioned early on during Raian's second reign as captain.

Captain Getsueikirite's leadership is laid-back, though he expects much out of his soldiers, treating them as a family unit. As such, the division works surprisingly well together. His leadership is complemented by the lazy Lieutenant Matsumoto, who usually pushes most of her duties on Raian. Nevertheless, the friendliness of the division make it a shining star within the Gotei 13.

Frank Talk with the Captain-Commander, Retsu Unohana!

"The 10th Division is composed of its founder and strong leader, Captain Getsueikirite, and the gentle, free-spirited Lieutenant Matsumoto, so I think its a particularly well structured division! I recommend this division to those of you who want to see your abilities develop at an astonishing rate, and for those who value their friends above all else. Captain Getsueikirite is the type of guy who will stick his neck out for you no matter what you do. If you're in his division, you're in his 'family' for keeps! Its such a good division! ♥"

Shinigami Women's Association Aptitude Test

According to the most recent Shinigami Women's Association aptitude test, this division is best for those who treasure the bonds they have made with others. Captain Raian almost always accepts those who are joining on behalf of a friend, either alive or deceased, and likes to pair good friends with each other to promote stronger bonds. The Association goes on to state that the tenth division is for the kind and thoughtful Shinigami.
