Tamurahime no Mikoto (田村媛命(タムラヒメノミコト)) is a character that appears exclusively in Kamikashimashi-hen.

Profile

The same as Hanyuu, the leader of those that are not human. Lived in "that place" for a long time, even in the past, where she once fought with Hanyuu.

Relations with Hanyuu are cold and have not been exchanged for more than 100 years. Hanyuu is not kind to her either. They don't want to see each other again. The troubles of the gods... bring unfortunate disasters to the world...

......The story is about a tragedy again.

(Translated from the official 07th Expansion website.)

Appearance

Tamura has short pink hair with small white wings sprouting from the sides of her head. She wears a white kimono with black straps.

Personality

Tamura speaks in a very archaic way. She is very prideful and tries to do things by herself whenever possible.

Background

Tamura is the goddess of Japan who was at odds with Hanyuu for a long time because the latter stole one of Tamura's offerings.

Story

Kamikashimashi-hen

Tamura first appears when Rika and Hanyuu try to leave Hinamizawa and enter Okinomiya. Despite their wishes to take responsibility for Hinamizawa Syndrome breaking out, Tamura wants to deal with it herself and sends Rika and Hanyuu back to Hinamizawa.

Tamura is revealed to have made Takano her shrine maiden and influenced her to spread Hinamizawa Syndrome, later empowering Takano and sending her to capture Une. Takano is defeated and Tamura explains to Rika and Hanyuu that she did it all to prevent Une from spreading her own virus and destroying humanity.

Rika and Hanyuu reset the timeline to before the outbreak and capture Une, and Tamura thanks them for their help. However, they induct her into the club as punishment for Tamura contributing to the original outbreak in the first place. Tamura, Une and Hanyuu make amends and play games with the other club members, soon losing and being made to do a punishment game.

Other Appearances

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Mei

Tamura appears. When Kazuho Kimiyoshi visits Hinamizawa in 1993 and encounters monsters, Tamura gives her the power to fight them and later sends her back in time to the Hinamizawa of 1983.

Tamura also acts as a guide throughout the game and gives tutorials on various gameplay elements.

Trivia

  • Tamura is also commonly known as Tamura Himeinochi to English-speaking fans. However, this is a mistranslation. When Tamura is first introduced, the katakana pronunciation for Tamurahime no Mikoto (田村媛命) is presented in parentheses (タムラヒメノミコト). xPearse literally translated the kanji portion as "Tamura Himeinochi"; 命 is the kanji for life, "inochi." The official 07th Expansion website displays the correct translation of 田村媛命 as Tamurahime no Mikoto.
