Don Furuya is the father of Chihiro and Mero. He works as a priest at the temple where they live.
Don states that he is not a person to judge others by their hobbies. As Chihiro's father, he was always kind of worried about Chihiro and his lack of responsibility. He is quite accepting and care free in teaching his children as stated by Ranko in the OVA. He is very respectful and welcoming towards guests.
