Kasumi is a dead member of the family who owns the Ryokan Hiei. She drowned one night in the baths at the inn, and now her ghost supposedly haunts the ryokan. Though the player never meets her during the duration of the game, she is often mentioned by other characters.

Yumi is Kasumi's older daughter who runs a bento stand called Happy Bento in the inner city of Kyoto. As the oldest daughter, she is, by tradition, to inherit her family's ryokan, though she chooses to live a life in the city instead. She has a very strained relationship with her family and Rentaro, due, in part, to her unconventional views and over-bearing personality.
Players can meet and interact with Yumi at her bento stand by the Technology Expo in Kyoto. She also meets Bess and George at the expo, and they quickly become friends. Miwako is the receptionist at the Ryokan Hiei and is the younger daughter of Kasumi. She is devoted to the ryokan and her family heritage.
