|This article is about a character in Umineko no Naku Koro ni.|
A leading member of the Ushiromiya Group. Between the time of Eva's death and Ange succeeding her position, management of the Group has fallen to core members like him in her stead.
However, Ange has no desire to inherit that role, leaving the Group on the brink of fracturing internally and putting Okonogi in a difficult position.
He was once the president of a foodstuffs distribution company and had an intimate relationship with Hideyoshi's business.
Because of that long-lasting association, Eva trusted him particularly, and he was appointed to an important post within the Group.
Okonogi has dark green hair tied into a ponytail and wears gold earrings. He wears an entirely red suit and pants with a yellow tie and black shoes.
Okonogi tends to see things from a more compassionate view when compared to Ange.
Okonogi runs a company, Okonogi Foods, that has had business with the Ushiromiya Family, including Hideyoshi's company.

Role in the Story
He's responsible for telling Ange that her hatred of Eva prevents her from fully understanding what happened on Rokkenjima, because "without love, the truth cannot be seen." He allows Ange to escape as Kasumi Sumadera attempts to capture her and arranges for Juuza Amakusa to act as her bodyguard.
Okonogi doesn't physically appear, however in the Tea Party, he calls Amakusa and orders him to assassinate Kasumi.
In the Magic Ending, Okonogi assumes full control of the Ushiromiya Group after Ange passes it on to him.
- Okonogi has the same name and similar appearance to Tetsurou Okonogi from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. It is not clear if they are the exact same character however.
