Yanagida (柳田) is a sly-eyed man with short light-colored hair who stops Natsumi from fleeing Kyōsai's house. He has an archaic way of speaking and appears to be involved in creating ghosts which fuel urban stories. While Sanmoto Gorōzaemon was still human, Yanagida was his loyal subordinate. After Sanmoto's death, Yanagida became his "ears" and was one of the seven executives of the Hyaku Monogatari Clan.

During the Tokyo Tag arc, he appeared alongside Enchou when they challenged the Nura Clan to Tokyo Tag and spent the rest of the arc persumably hiding.

After Sanmoto Gorozaemon was killed by Nura Rikuo and Tsurara, Yanagida wondered why Sanmoto didn't devour him. Yanagida believes that Sanmoto is evolving and is now able to revive by taking over another one's tale. Yanagida than leaves, deciding to create the Continuation of the Hundred Tales and finally revive his beloved master.


  • He is named for the historic figure Kunio Yanagita (柳田 國男, Yanagita Kunio), a Japanese scholar who wrote the famous collection of folk legends Tales of Tōno.
  • Though he is called Sanmoto's Ear, he is persumably the only one who is not a Youkai created from Sanmoto's body splitting
