|Fatal Frame Character|
Masato Hinasaki is a relative of Mr. Hinasaki, who took in Mikoto Munakata after her parents died. He married Miyuki Hinasaki, Mikoto's daughter, under uncertain circumstances. Miyuki was one of Masato's archaeology students, acting as his assistant by using her mother’s camera (which was actually the Camera Obscura) to take pictures at their dig sites. Although the couple ended up with two children, their marriage soon became strained by Masato's work-related absences from home. Miku has never mentioned him; since she stills mourns her mother and brother, it is probable he died/disappeared when she was very young.
Since Masato is not mentioned in any game, it is possible he was put on the website to rationalize Miku bearing the Hinasaki name. In the game, Mikoto's adoption by Mr. Hinasaki was put there as a clue as to Miku's relationship to her. In the novel it was clarified that Mikoto retained her own name at least until marriage. In short, the name Hinasaki may have been put in initially without much thought and Masato's story was added to further explain Miku's origins.
- Miku never mentions Masato; this is probably because he died when she was very young.
- In Zero ~Shisei no Koe~ source material, Masato and Miyuki Hinasaki appear to have given Ruri (Miku's cat) to Miku. Whether this was before their deaths or afterwards (as a sort of divine intervention) is unclear.
