One of the main roads in Okinomiya

A small town very close to the village of Hinamizawa, stated to take about an hour by bike from Hinamizawa and is described as being rather rural. Various characters also live here, Takano Miyo, Ōishi Kuraudo, known to be born and raised there, Kimiyoshi Natsumi, Kasai Tatsuyoshi, Shion Sonozaki, after she escaped from her school with the help of Kasai, and her parents who run their Yakuza operations from Okinomiya. Besides residents, there are also a various number of locations seen throughout the series. The apartment block Shion lives in with Kasai next door, the restaurant Angel Mort where she works part-time as a waitress, two toy stores (one of which belongs to Mion's and Shion's uncle Yoshirou), a large swimming pool, the police station where Oishi, Kumagai, and Hondaya work at. Also found in the town is the library, a popular meeting place and the building where Miyo Takano often pursued her studies on the history of Hinamizawa. There also used to be a cafe called "Slim Berta", which Shion particularly liked but seemed to have possibly closed in Shouwa-year 56 (1981). 

Due to its close proximity and residents from Hinamizawa, many people living here believe in Oyashiro-sama and his curse. Okinomiya is also apparently close enough to Hinamizawa to prevent symptoms of Hinamizawa Syndrome from surfacing.
