Moriya Shrine

The Moriya Shrine as seen in Touhou Hisoutensoku



The Moriya Shrine (Moriya Jinja, 守矢神社) originated from the outside world and was transported into Gensokyo by Kanako Yasaka during the start of the events of Mountain of Faith. The shrine is now located somewhere near the top of Youkai Mountain by a lake that was also transported with it. As noted in Silent Sinner in Blue, a distinctively thick shimenawa is hung across the entrance of the shrine building, bigger than the one at the Hakurei Shrine. (As an aside, we can see the same design at Suwa Grand Shrine, the original inspiration of Moriya Shrine. The real-world Moriya Shrine—with a different kanji, 矢神社—also exists near the Suwa Grand Shrine.)

This shrine is home to Sanae Kochiya, whose role is similar to a Shrine Maiden, and its resident gods Kanako Yasaka and Suwako Moriya.
