I'm traveling the land to spread the good teachings of Buddha. There seem to be so many places in need of guidance.


Komuso (「虚無僧」?; Komusō) is a Buddhist monk who appears in Ōkami. He is involved in a small set of mini-games throughout the land of Nippon, traveling from Kamiki Village to Kusa Village, and eventually to Sei'an City.


Komuso is clothed in the typical garb of a Buddhist monk, including a brown robe, orange kesa, and a holy charm hanging from his sash. He also carries a shakuhachi flute and a straw basket on his head.

  • Since Komuso is seen in Sasa Sanctuary, it is implied that he is one of a good-hearted nature, not surprising since he is a follower of Buddhism.
  • The song that Komuso plays on his flute is the first few notes of the Cursed Sei'an City theme.
  • Komusō is also the name of a mendicant monks of the Fuke school of Zen Buddhism abolished in 1868. As the character, they used a shakuhachi flute and basket named tengai (天蓋) on their heads in order to concentrate and improve the Buddhist practice.
