The story begins in feudal Japan with Inu Yasha, a hanyō stealing the Jewel of Four Souls (四魂の玉 Shikon no Tama), a jewel that can increase anyone's powers enormously, from a village. He doesn't get far before Kikyo, the young miko of the village shoots Inu Yasha with a sacred arrow, sealing him forever to the Sacred Tree (Goshinboku). Mortally wounded, Kikyo tells her younger sister, Kaede, to burn the jewel with her remains to keep it from falling into the wrong hands.

In modern Tokyo, a junior high-school girl named Kagome Higurashi is on her way to school. She stops in the well house of her family Shinto shrine to retrieve her cat, Buyo, and a centipede demon bursts forth and pulls her into the well. Kagome miraculously fends off the demon and emerges from the well in the Sengoku period of Japan.

Kagome and Inu Yasha set out to collect the shards of the Jewel of Four Souls and restore it, because it was accidentially split up into thousands of parts by Kagome when she shot a bird demon who had swallowed the Jewel. Along the way they befriend Shippo, a fox demon, Miroku, a monk, and Sango, a demon-slayer. The group often encounter Inu Yasha's brother Sesshomaru, Naraku, who tricked Kikyo and InuYasha into turning against each other, and Koga, a wolf demon who's in love with Kagome.
