Akito Kashiwagi is a folklorist and a scholar in Fatal Frame III: The Tormented.
Akito was studying about ancient legends and folk-songs, he grew interested in the spreading lullaby of the Handmaidens in the Mutsu Region (Northeastern Japan). Akito traveled to that area in hopes of conducting further research.
He was invited to stay in the Kuze Shrine during the snowy months, men were invited for the purpose of producing female heirs. In this shrine, he heard the lullaby in its original form. During his stay, he and Kyouka shared mutual love. She was arranging her hair day by day in various way after he praised it and took a photo of her with his camera. When Kyouka learned of his interest in rituals and folk-songs of this region, she played music for him including the Handmaiden's song.
