Both are set in a small village when a time for a local festival is approaching, and one of the main characters is a priestess that has to perform in it, both involve a kind of time travel related to the village's beliefs, and both Kimi no Na wa and Higurashi second season have the same tension and are exciting in the same way when a small group of friends is trying to prevent something from happening and getting other people to cooperate.

They essentially have the same plot line except with different circumstances, characters and genre. To be honest, both these stories could potentially be in the same universe as some sort of fan theory and I wouldn't be that surprised.
