The Maple Shrine (楓神社, Kaedejinja, Maple Shrine) is an area accessible from The Hand Hub and the Shinto Shrine. The portal to the Shinto Shrine has a small chance to take you here, and the last Torii gate in the Shinto Shrine may also teleport you here.
The external area consists of the two buildings and Torii that you can also find in the Shinto Shrine. However, they are inaccessible and instead of trees there are maple leaves on the ground. You can make an offer of 10円 when touching the offer box in front of the big building.
Past the buildings you can find a house with a Kakemono attached to it. Entering this house leads you to a teleporter maze where you can find a vending machine, as well as a smiling orange head creature at the end, which will give you a Menu Theme if you interact with it. Equipping the Glass Effect there will make the creature transparent and intangible.
Entering the final area while using the Motorcycle Effect will remove it, but you can re-equip it afterward without it being removed again. However, this area does prevent Urotsuki from equipping several effects, including the Marginal, Eyeball Bomb, Bat, Steel Drum and Tombstone Effects.
The stump beside the head creature can be interacted by sitting on it. Upon sitting on the stump, the head begins to sing a simple melody with musical notes appearing in the air. Murdering the head and then sitting on the stump will cut the music of the area, but the melody won't play. The creature will stay dead even if you leave the area, but it has a chance of coming back if you leave the maze area entirely and then come back to the final part of the maze.
Once the final area has been reached, trying to go back to it later will immediately teleport you to it, effectively skipping the maze itself.
- Trying to skip the entrance to the teleport maze using the Penguin Effect will cause a mole-like creature wielding a pickaxe to emerge from the specific tile used to teleport her, preventing her from skipping it.
- The mole itself appears to be a reference to Mr. Resetti from the Animal Crossing series, due to both being hard hat-wearing and pickaxe-wielding moles digging out from the ground to prevent the player from cheating.
