The Furude Shrine
is the shrine of Oyashiro-sama
, the god of Hinamizawa
, and the place where the Watanagashi Festival
is held in every year. Originally, the Furude Family
lived here, but after the priest and his wife
died, their daughter, Furude Rika
, decided to live in a small house with Satoko
near to the shrine. Behind the shrine, there's also a small building, the Saiguden
, where various torture tools are held from the dark history of Hinamizawa.
The shrine appears many times in the story, mostly as the place where Rika is killed after a few days of the Watanagashi Festival.
