Katsuragi, or the Forest of the Wind, is introduced after Yuri and Karin defeat Amon. They meet Albert Simon in the forest in Yuri's memory, saying that it is peaceful. Katsuragi becomes an actual location after visiting Hojo Research Lab. At the start, the visit is only a cutscene before falling into Purgatory. After defeating Garan, all are returned to the original forest.
Overall, Katsuragi is somewhat a dungeon and a path at the same time to Inugami Village. The map is quite small, with one path leading to the village and another to a cliffside. Enemies are encountered, as in all dungeons.
There is a point where Katsuragi becomes important in a sidequest. After Blanca beats Henri in Tiffauges Castle as part of the Wolf Bout, he encounters Lobo again. The battle should be not unlike that experienced before when fighting him in Immortal Mountain. Afterwards, Blanca recieves another pawprint for the Wolf Bout and the player gets a high-level Instant Death ring item as a prize.
