The Factory is an old abandoned factory area in the Town of the Protagonist. It is supposedly where many children get taken to after being kidnapped by Mr. Yomawari(s) and then killed by the Meat(s). Now, many of their Spirits haunt the place.
During Chapter 6, the Protagonist was taken to the Factory upon being kidnapped by a Mr. Yomawari. As the Protagonist tries to escape the Factory, she had to escape from both Spirits and Mr. Yomawari, who transform into Meat. After having to run all over the Factory, she finds the key to the front gate of the Factory. As she was about to head to the gate, Meat appears for one more attack, only to end up falling off the building they were on and end up falling into a pillar that pierced it. The girl was surprised of what happened, but as she inspects what happened, a Hand Spirit suddenly passes behind her. As she senses it and looks behind her, she notices an open shipment container that was previously closed. As she inspects inside it, two more Hand Spirits come out of it, surprising her. She then regain her thoughts, and found inside the container an Old Charm that belonged to her sister. The girl then used the key she found to escape. As she head Home, she figured out that Mr. Yomawari was the one who kidnapped her sister.
The Factory has several abandoned buildings, as well as a large abandoned chimney building. They are many old shipment containers scattered around the place. It has a bridge which has a stairway leading into the sewer system.

- It is believed that Mr. Yomawari(s) kidnaps children who wander outside at night and leaves them in the Factory to be killed by these Spirits as Meat or by other Spirits. It's possible to find the corpse of one of the kidnapped children in the Factory. You can also find collectible Items belonging to the kidnapped children.
- In some mythology and legends, steel is used to repel spirits. So it may be possible the Spirits inside the Factory are tripped there because the Factory acts like a cage because it specializes in steel work (based on the Items found in the area).
