Far away from the urban areas, there is a seemingly idyllic and peaceful village which is surrounded by deep forest. The name of this village is "Hinamizawa Village".
The village was once supposed to be sent to the bottom of the dam, but it still exists thanks to the whole village's effort to fight the pressure that tried to drive Hinamizawa under the water.

One day, villagers and children in Hinamizawa welcome transfer student, Maebara Keiichi. Keiichi used to live in a city and is not accustomed to living in such a rural area, but Rena, Mion, and other students talk to him and they become good friends. Keiichi gradually enjoys leading a life in Hinamizawa. And he thinks this pleasant life will last forever... Until the day when an annual traditional festival at the village, "Watanagashi".

In June of the 58th year of the Showa Era (1981),
Around the time the evening cicada (Higurashi) cry,
Ordinary life suddenly ends, and tragic events begin
And break the relationship between friends...
