Wawku Shrine (「イリワク神殿」?; Iriwaku shinden) is the penultimate dungeon in Ōkami. Discovered by the Oina long ago, they consider this location as a sacred place[Citation needed]. This is also where Lechku & Nechku used to reside when they were altar statues and after they have awakened.


Wawku Shrine lies mostly in the mountains of Ezofuji and is littered with clockworks and mechanisms. The shrine has ice as its element, with this substance apparent at almost everywhere: icicles, ice columns, ice spheres, pits full of ice crystals, etc. Wawku Shrine also has a defensive systems which consists of cannons, flamethrowers, fragile glass bridges, quickly spinning platforms, and many more. Demons infest this area as the main residents, alongside Lechku and Nechku, both when they were altar statues and when they have awakened.

The name Wawku (and its Japanese version Iriwaku) is derived from the Ainu language irwak (「イㇼワㇰ」?) meaning "brother". The Affun Gate takes its name from the Ainu ahun (「アフン」?) meaning "to enter".[1]
