"This may look small, but it's a lethal weapon. If you value your life, you'll do as I say."
— Chiyuri Kitashirakawa (Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream)
Chiyuri Kitashirakawa (北白河 ちゆり Kitashirakawa Chiyuri) is a graduate school alumnus from the outside world and Yumemi Okazaki's assistant who helps her to collect data on magic. She follows Yumemi into Gensokyo on the Probability Space Hypervessel in order to further that goal.
Her full name is Chiyuri Kitashirakawa (北白河 ちゆり), where Kitashirakawa (北白河) means "north white river".
Chiyuri's design shows that she has blonde hair and yellow eyes. She wears a white sailor uniform with a shade of blue which looks too small for her and has a blue neckerchief, a white hat and a blue ribbon. Her alternative outfit is the same, except her sailor uniform now appears to have a shade of red with a red ribbon; additionally, this outfit is worn by the Chiyuri from Gensokyo.
- Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream
During Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream Chiyuri wrote an invitation flier with promises of wishes being granted to lure people to the "ruins" (which later turned out to be a ship). After putting the various heroines against each other so that only the strongest one would make it inside, she drew a gun on the winner to force her to cooperate because it was more fun that way. This turned out to be completely different from how Yumemi had wanted the situation handled, and Chiyuri was forced to fight the heroine so that Yumemi could collect research data about magic. Chiyuri was defeated much sooner than Yumemi had expected and interrupts Yumemi's threat to use a powerful bomb against the heroine after the final battle.
Chiyuri is currently believed to still be in Gensokyo along with Yumemi after her professor was kicked out of the Academy, because of the final ending of Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream.
In Chiyuri's scenario, she is a native inhabitant of Gensokyo who can use magic, and is one of the many heroines who fight each other to gain access to the ruins. Inside, she is confronted by herself from another world and fights her to to decide who's the stronger one then battles Yumemi, who wishes to study her magic. Afterwards, she follows Yumemi and the other Chiyuri to the outside world, much to the former's dismay that they can no longer return. This is, however, confusing.

- Chiyuri's appearance and speech patterns are based off on Eriko Asagaoka from Izumi Takemoto's manga Apple Paradise. (comparison)
- Not counting Hieda no Akyuu, who never appears in any game in the series, Chiyuri is thought to be the youngest character in the Touhou Project whose actual age is known. If any other character was younger at the time they first appeared in a game, their real age has never been revealed. It should be noted, however, that almost no one in Touhou has a known age.
- Chiyuri appears on the cover of Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream, along with all the other characters in that game.
- Because of her clothes, she is thought to be the inspiration for Minamitsu Murasa from Undefined Fantastic Object.
- It is implied that her world of origin may not be the Outside World as we know it, but rather some separate world, because a grand unified theory has been completed, and children graduate from graduate school at the age of thirteen. Supporting this theory is the fact that Gensokyo appears to have its own version of Chiyuri, implying that the Probability Space Hypervessel comes from some alternate dimension altogether.
- Despite the Chiyuri from Gensokyo being capable of using magic her attacks are the same as her counterpart's. This is the only instance in the series where a character's "Player 2" design was used to represent a separate character that could be fought and controlled.
