The story revolves around Kagome, who is sucked down a well inside a temple, and ends up in feudal Japan. There she revives InuYasha who was sealed in a tree. Sealed by a priestess, 50 years ago (in the time of the world they are in) with an appearance exactly the same as Kagome, who was the priestess responsible for protecting a jewel called the jewel of the 4 souls.
And as Kagome is the reincarnation of this priestess, she brings with her from the “real” world the jewel that the Youkai desire. But the jewel ends up being broken and its fragments scattered everywhere, each fragment being capable of giving a lot of power to whoever possesses it. So Kagome and InuYasha go on an adventure with the purpose of collecting all the fragments. So that these are not used by someone with bad intentions.
