Folklorist's Note 3 is an old book in Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly.
|For several days, earthquakes have increased in frequency.|
At the same time, Crimson Butterflies are swarming, sometimes blocking out the sun. Somehow, they look sad.

The village is quite fearful of the earth's fury.
Perhaps the Crimson Sacrifice Ritual is performed to purify the ground.

If that custom still remains today, it explains the stillness in the village.
The guardian desties, the Twin Shrine Maidens, have become Crimson Butterflies, and are returning to the village.
