List of Characters

Touko Fujiwara (藤原 塔子, Fujiwara Touko) and her husband, Shigeru are distant relatives of Natsume who have adopted him and now raise him in their home in the countryside.

Natsume keeps his ability to see youkai a secret from the Fujiwaras, fearing that this knowledge would get them involved in the world of youkai and bring them harm.

Touko and Shigeru are aware that there are many things that Natsume is not yet comfortable sharing with them, but choose not to pry into his business. They assure Natsume that they consider him as part of their family, and want to make their home a place where he feels that he belongs.


Touko is a middle-aged woman with dark brown hair and eyes. She ties her hair back in a bun. She is always seen in a pink, long-sleeved apron with a collared shirt underneath.


She is a kind and caring person. Initially, without even knowing much about Natsume, she had cared about him.

Touko is attracted to children as she has none of her own. Touko is a very mother like figure to Takashi and often asks him what he would like for dinner.

Towards Shigeru, her husband, she is very attatched to him to the point where she constantly think about him. In season 5, she stated that if they were to be completely apart from each other, she would not know what to do and would worry if he would be alright or if he could take care of himself.


Unable to bear children, the Fujuwara family had always consisted just of Touko and Shigeru. She always enjoyed her peaceful, happy times together with Shigeru even though she feels lonely at times.

Young Fujiwaras

The Fugiwara couple in their younger years

When she first met Natsume, she explained that she was his father's distant relative and that he could live with her if he wanted.[1]

She and Shigeru visited Natsume at the hospital after he sealed a youkai near his other relative's house, (the details of this unknown to the adults), offering him a place to stay and assuring him that he could leave at any time if he wanted, and Natsume, overcome with emotion, accepted their proposal.
