You're a prodigy that comes once in a hundred years, no, more like once in five hundred years! You know, you can probably become a worldwide violinist like me.

—Moe Higurashi setting big expectations for Setsuna[src]

Moe Higurashi (日暮ひぐらしもえ) is Sōta's wife and Mei's mother.


Moe married Sōta Higurashi, and the two of them had a daughter named Mei.


Moe is a kind woman, very passionate about music. She is also a very accepting individual, as she believed Sota's stories about Kagome and Inuyasha that he told her sometime either before or after getting married. She is seen to be a very nurturing woman who places a great deal of importance on family, as she eagerly accepted her adopted daughter's twin sister into her family as well as her niece, Moroha.

Physical Description

Moe is a women with shoulder-length brown hair, and pale skin.


Sōta Higurashi

Sōta is her husband. The two are shown to rely on one another for support and are very close. She apparently believed the stories Sota disclosed to her about Inuyasha and the Bone-Eater's Well, displaying a very trusting relationship.

Mei Higurashi

Mei is her daughter.

Towa Higurashi

Towa is her adoptive daughter.


Moroha is her niece-in-law. They first met when Moroha was 14 years old and she visiting the modern era for the first time. Together with Sōta, Moe suspects that she may be Kagome's daughter. The aunt is quite friendly to her newfound niece, but it seems that Moe is really confused by Moroha's primitive habits (for example, appearing naked after a shower in front of other people).


After traveling to the modern era, Setsuna is taught how to play the violin by Moe. She quickly excels at playing it to the point where Moe considers her to by a prodigy.


To be added


  • Moe's trait of always having her eyes closed is similar to Tamako from another of Rumiko Takahashi's series Kyoukai no Rinne.
  • Sōta had told her at some point about Kagome's adventure, given how rather quickly she accepts the craziness of Moroha and Setsuna's arrival.
