They resemble fairies in western cultures, except that they normally carry monstrous appearances. Yashas are caretakers of natural treasures and guardians of righteous. Different Yasha carries different capabilities ranging from medical care to managing river flows.

The Tsuka is constructed of two pieces of hard wood over the tang of the blade. Black Samegawa (ray skin) has been wrapped over the wood with a Brown Cotton Ito wrapped over the Same. Two bamboo Mekugis secure the tang of the blade into the Tsuka. A gold finished brass Menuki adorns each side of the Tsuka. The Kashira is drak brass with another scene of cloud in bold relief.
