The 13th Hierarchical City of Kagutsuchi is a Hierarchical City that serves as the main stage of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, and BlazBlue: Central Fiction. It sits within the Izumo Region.
Before the city was built, the mountaintop it inhabits was used by the Kaka as their residency. Eventually, Hierarchical planning took over, and the city was built on top of their village despite their complaints. Kagutsuchi has a reputation for being filled with criminals . Most of Kagutsuchi's lower areas are still under construction, and the gear-type elevators are in poor condition; this does not extend to some of the lower levels, meaning that to access them, one must use long stairways. 
Like all of the Hierarchical Cities, the Novus Orbis Librarium branch is situated at the top of the city, and the cauldron is located deep in the core of the mountain. Kagutsuchi's Roningai district was built and populated by refugees from the Ikaruga Federation after the destruction of the 5th Hierarchical City of Ibukido during the Ikaruga Civil War; the area was managed by its de-facto head, Bang Shishigami. 
Orient Town is one of the larger districts and is home to numerous stalls in its large marketplace. Litchi Faye-Ling runs her clinic in this district alongside her assistant, Linhua. The district, as its name would suggest, is heavily influenced by the orient in terms of aesthetic, and there are numerous restaurants. Kagutsuchi also homes a museum, railway system, and large parks.
