Kagome's mummified kappa hand

This mummified kappa hand (河童の手, かっぱのて, "Kappa no te") was a gift to Kagome from her grandfather for her 15th birthday. She immediately showed his dissatisfaction upon seeing it and gave to her cat Buyo to eat (much to her grandfather's dismay). Kagome did not believe that it was genuine.[1]


  • Buyo is seen playing with with the hand during the credits of the last episode of the original series.
