The Woods is the forest-based outskirts of the Protagonist's Town. This is where Poro's body was sent flying to after he was rammed by a truck near the Tunnel. It is also where the Protagonist buried Poro's body and created her dog's grave.
During Chapter 4, the Protagonist witnesses Poro's Spirit and ran after him into the Woods. After evading Spirits with the help of Matches she found and passing through the thick thickets, she eventually reaches the deepest parts of the Woods and found Poro's body. The girl tries to wake him up, but she fails again and again. The girl was eventually forced to realize and accept reality that her dog is dead. She breaks down into tears, blaming herself for Poro's death and not telling her Sis what had happened, which lead the sister to go missing. Eventually, she buried Poro's body and made him a grave. The Protagonist then left to find her sister, only to end up in the old train tracks and encounter a ghost train heading towards her. It seemed to have hit her, but the girl wakes up to find herself okay. She also finds Poro's Torn Collar in her hand. The girl then continued her way Home before resuming her search for Sis.
At the end of the game and Chapter 7, which is the next day, the Protagonist who now wears an Eyepatch over her missing left eye and her sister visited the woods. She visited Poro's grave with her sister and left the dog some flowers. The two then returned home.
