Hakurei Shrine

危険度: 低

Danger level: Low

遭遇する妖怪: 無し。。。の筈

Encounterable youkai: None... as expected


The only shrine on the eastern edge of Gensokyo.


This shrine exists in the outer world and on the border of Gensokyo (4).


All of Gensokyo can be seen from this shrine, and it is famous for having the most beautiful cherry blossoms.


The shrine maiden of Hakurei, who specializes in disaster resolution, lives here.


She watches Gensokyo from here, and if a disaster happens, she will go out immediately and stop it at the source.


Recently, it's said that she resolved the scarlet mist disaster.


Although originally youkai could not approach the shrine, there is a rumor that it is a den of youkai, and that it's now impossible for humans to approach.


Though the shrine and the human village both promise that there will be no youkai attacks, the path between the shrine and the village is a poor animal trail, and since its safety cannot be guaranteed, it has always dissuaded pilgrims.


In other special features, goods and lost humans from the other world are discovered near this shrine in many cases.


A human being from outside will become food shortly after encountering a youkai, but if his luck is sufficient to find the shrine, he can return outside. (5)


The goods of the outer world are mysterious, and popular among humans and youkai alike.


For this reason, many collectors' shops surround the shrine.


However, it is said that the purpose of most of the collected goods cannot be understood.

*4 正確にはこの神社のある場所は、幻想郷ではない。

4: To be accurate, the place where this shrine exists is not in Gensokyo.

*5 最近は外に帰りたくないという人間が増えたと言う。その場合は人間の里に住まわせる事もある。

5: It is said that the human beings who don't want to return outside have increased in number lately. in that case, they are made to live in the human village.
