Shikon no Tama keychain

The Shikon no Tama keychain (四魂の玉キーホルダー, しこんのたまキーホルダー, "Shikon no Tama kīhorudā") were items sold at the Higurashi shrine. They were made to look identical to the legendary Shikon no Tama and were shown to came in either pick or purple (different from the jewel's real color). As a plastic replica, it had no power of the real Shikon no Tama. The keychains were written with kanji "日暮神社禦手" (Higurashi Shrine Amulet).


Kagome's grandfather handed a keychain her while talking about the Shikon no Tama, but when he looked up, Kagome was using the keychain to play with the family's pet cat Buyo.[1]


  • The boxes that contained the keychains were labeled "Higurashi Shrine Shikon no Tama keyholder."
  • Kagome's grandfather is seen still trying to sell the keychains during the credits of Episode 167.
