Kyōhei, Hibino, and Utao finally made it to the Kuga shrine, meeting up with Moyako Somaki, who helps repair Kukuri by soaking the wood of the kakashi in a tub of "Kami no Chi", or "God's Blood", and then dry it out for several days. Utao goes to see Kiyotaka Kuga, her grandfather, who confirms that Kirio is indeed her younger twin brother. After Kukuri is repaired, Utao trains with Moyako for a while before having a picnic. Utao comes up with the idea that Kukuri should fly her, along with Kyōhei and Hibino, as a way to go back home, but she loses concentration and causes an unstable and uncomfortable flight, prompting her to safely lower Kukuri onto the ground. During a downpour at the shrine, Kyōhei recalls about the sensei who taught at his school six years ago.
