The Human Village (人里, Hitozato) is where most of Gensokyo's humans live. Even though some youkai also visit here to shop, this is the safest place in all of Gensokyo to live. Humans from the outside world that stumble into Gensokyo and decide to stay often have no choice but to live here as they would be unable to handle the youkai outside the village. The village itself has a powerful protector in Keine Kamishirasawa, who is capable of "hiding" the history of the village's existence so that youkai cannot even reach the village, much less attack it.
Among the people living at the village are Keine Kamishirasawa (who runs a school here) and Hieda no Akyu. The village has an as of yet unnamed leader, a florist, a tofu shop, etc. There's also the Kirisame-ya second-hand shop here which is owned by Marisa Kirisame's family.
