The story begins in Tokyo, Japan, on the fifteenth birthday of a girl named Kagome Higurashi, who lives on the grounds of her family's hereditary Shinto shrine with her mother, grandfather and little brother Sota.
When she goes into the well house to retrieve her cat Buyo, a centipede demon bursts out of the enshrined Bone Eater's Well and pulls her back into the well with it.
Instead of hitting the bottom of the well, however, Kagome continues to fall as though through a portal, and reappears 500 years in the past (Meio 5/ 1496 A.D) in the ancient Sengoku period of Japan.
Apparently, the demon had previously attacked a village near the well in the Sengoku period, in pursuit of a magical jewel known as the Shikon Jewel (Jewel of the Four Souls).
It had attempted to kill the Jewel's previous keeper, a woman who looked very like Kagome; and now the demon has mistaken Kagome for this woman.
The demon attacks her, planning to consume both her and the Jewel to absorb the incredible power.
In a moment of desperation, Kagome unseals a half demon trapped by a sacred arrow against a nearby tree.
The half-demon, Inuyasha, easily defeats the centipede demon, but he might actually be a bigger problem himself.
He was sealed to the tree fifty years previously by a priestess named Kikyo, who also turns out to have been the keeper of the Jewel—and Kagome's previous incarnation.
Kikyo had requested, upon her death, that the Jewel be burned with her in her funeral pyre so no one could ever abuse its tremendous power.
Although Inuyasha destroys the centipede, the Shikon Jewel is later shattered into numerous shards that disperse across Japan.
Even the individual shards are capable of granting great power, and are eagerly sought by humans and demons alike.
Inuyasha and Kagome set out to collect the shards to avoid disasters caused by the Jewel.
