Buyo (ブヨ, "Gnat") was Kagome Higurashi's overweight cat in modern-day Tokyo, and led to her falling through the family well into the sengoku jidai.


Buyo was the reason Kagome first finds the well, since she was looking for the cat for her brother. Buyo belongs to the Higurashi family and has been part of their family for an unknown length of time, but its likely he has been a part of their family for a while. Kagome and Sōta would often give him stupid artifacts that they had been given by their grandfather.


Buyo was very lazy, like many house cats. Most of the time, he would be found on Kagome's bed sleeping or wandering around. Buyo mostly provided comic relief to the series.

Physical descriptionEdit

Buyo was an overweight cat of average height and with multi-colored fur. There were various patches of brown and black on his white fur. He had a patch of brown over his left ear stretching all the way to midback, on the bottom half of his front left leg, and one on his bottom by his tail. There were black patches in the middle of the two brown patches located on his back. He had claws, but did not always bring them out.


  • Inu-buyo
    Buyo appeared in episodes 1, 4, 11, 38, 48, 62, 69, 75, 82, 89, 90, 127, 137 and 160.
  • Inuyasha liked to play with him on the occasions when he visited Kagome's house in the modern era though Buyo apparently does not seem to enjoy Inuyasha's time with him.
  • Despite how Inuyasha has occasionally shown dog instincts; such as how Kagome played fetch with him or how he tried to dry himself in the same manner as an actual dog as well as sitting like a dog, Inuyasha does not seem to react much to cats as seen when he, from only his view, harmlessly plays with Buyo.
  • Buyo's seiyuu was Ginzo Matsuo, who was also the first voice of Kagome's grandfather.
  • Buyo's voice actor is Richard Cox, who also dubs the voice of Inuyasha.
  • Buyo is a male calico cat; however, in reality, it is nearly impossible for a male cat to be born with a calico fur pattern. Those male cats that are born calico are usually sterile.
