Hitokui-Jima (人食い島 Hitokui-Jima, lit Man-eating island) is a giant Yōkai who lived off the coast of Sasaoka Village in Wakayama Prefecture since 1,000 years ago.

Appearance

In the manga, Hitokui-Jima is a large being, whose head is what makes most of the island. His body has a humanoid shape, but still retaining an earthy or rocky texture. In the 1996 anime, Hitokui-Jima in youth much more resembled a human male than his later-self.

Personality

In the third anime, he was rather calm by nature and used to be worshiped by humans as the Island God (島神様 Shima-Kami-sama) or Sea God (海神様 Umi-Kami-sama). However, at one point he fell under the control of Umi-Oshō within his lung, becoming notorious for seeking human sacrifices.

In Yōkai Sen-Monogatari, Hitokuijima was once violent but was sealed, however Shanghai Kani-Bōzu broke the seal and controlled Hitokuijima. Hitokuijima then asked a help to Kitarō.
