Grandpa HigurashiKagome's grandfather. He is often covering for Kagome's absences at school with interesting excuses, which make Kagome's friends worry a lot about her.
Grandpa is identified by his clothing as a traditional Japanese Shinto Priest, apparently the current custodian/guardian/caretaker/owner of the Higurashi Shrine which has been in the family for generations. He continually tries to inject some education of the history of the family shrine into everyday life—even to the point of discussing the "history of these pickles" much to Kagome's dismay.
