Sayuri's father (father)
Kazuya Kurata (倉田 一弥 Kurata Kazuya) was the younger brother of Sayuri Kurata whose body was weak from an early age and he died in the hospital after playing with Sayuri for the first and last time. Sayuri had always been strict with him as her parents had been with her so she never played with him and always attempted to toughen him up due to his physical weakness, but she felt so bad for him at the hospital that she made an exception for once. Upon his death, Sayuri's strict father shows a more tender side to his personality, expressing his gratitude for his daughter ensuring that Kazuya was happy in his final moments. After Kazuya's death, Sayuri started referring to herself in the third person.
Kazuya was a timid child and seemed to have had few friends. The little that is seen of Kazuya during Sayuri's arc in the visual novel as well as the 2006 anime reveals that he was quite sensitive to the harsh treatment of his parents and sister.
- The name Kazuya means "one" (一) (kazu) and "all the more, increasingly" (弥) (ya).
- Kazuya's surname Kurata means "warehouse" (倉) (kura) and "field, rice paddy" (田) (ta).
