    Inaba is a small town in rural Japan and the setting of the events of Shin Megami Tensei:  Persona 4. Throughout the game, the player can run around Inaba and talk to residents, visit shops, work part-time jobs, and take on different side quests.  Normally a quiet town, Inaba becomes the focus of media attention after a serial killer strikes and murders both the disgraced TV reporter Mayumi Yamano and Saki Konishi, the high school student that discovered Mayumi's body.

    Places of Note

    During the course of Persona 4, the player visits a variety of locations in and around Inaba.  Some of the more notable landmarks include:
    • The Dojima Residence: The home of the player character's uncle Ryotaro Dojima and his daughter Nanako.  The player stays with them for the duration of the school year.
    • Yasogami High School: The high school that the player character and his friends attend.  Unlike Gekkoukan High School in Persona 3, it is an older campus with fewer modern amenities.

    • Central Shopping District: A district of small, independent shops and businesses owned and operated by local residents.  The shop owners in the district feel threatened by Junes and fear the loss of their customers.
    • Amagi Inn: A traditional Japanese inn owned and operated by the Amagi family.  Yukiko is the next in the Amagi line to inherit the duty of managing it.
    • Samegawa Flood Plain: A plain that runs along the Samegawa River, it functions as a park where people go to relax and try their hands at fishing.
