The house belonging to the creepy doll collector, and the first area visited within the game.
Once upon a time there was a man who lived with his wife and son, in an old-fashioned Japanese house.
Then the son died.
The man started collecting dolls, coping with his grief. The dolls were very creepy. He even began making dolls himself.
And one day, for reasons not yet clear, he visited a certain web-site on the internet, and fell into a coma. He later died.
To this day the dolls he collected are still in the storage closets of the house...
