Fifteen year old Kagome Higurashi falls into an old well on her family's Shinto shrine. The "Bone eater's well" transports Kagome back in time to Japan's feudal era. There she meets the half dog demon half human Inuyasha.An old priestess named Kaede explains to Kagome that she is the reincarnation of her sister Kikyo. Kikyo was a priestess who guarded the Shikon mo Tama(Jewel of four souls). The Shikon no Tama can give the user extraorinary power. Alas, this power is always used for evil. A crow demon eats Kagome's Shikon no Tama.Kagome shot the crow with an arrow to prevent it from attacking people. She also unintentionally breaks the jewel and pieces of it scatter across the land. Now it's up to Kagome and Inuyasha to collect the pieces before they fall into the wrong hands.
