Yōkai taijiya

Permanent residents
The Yōkai taijiya village (妖怪退治屋の里) was the home of Sango and Kohaku. The residents of the village were demon slayers. The village also served as a workshop. The villagers would gather the remains of the yōkai they slayed and used their bones to make weapons and armor. The rest of their remains were stored away in a cave at the edge of the village. There was also a small shrine that was used in an attempt to purify the evil within the Shikon Jewel shards.


The village came under attack by Naraku's demons and was destroyed. Most of the inhabitant were killed in the attack except Kirara. The rest of slayers were off at a castle to slay a spider yōkai, but most of them were killed as well. This left Sango and Kohaku as the last slayers. The village itself became a graveyard for all its inhabitants and has been abandoned since then.

Manga vs. AnimeEdit

  • In the manga, the village was in possession of a single Shikon Jewel shard that Sango obtained from an ōmukade before it was destroyed. In the anime, it was shown that that village was in possession of five jewel shards.
