Sakonji's face was never revealed or depicted throughout the finished manga; he is always seen wearing a tengu mask that covers his entire face although Tanjiro states through a secret Taishō that Sakonji's face is very gentle and calm. He appears to be an elderly individual, as noted by the countless number of students he has trained, as well as his silver hair. In his youth, his hair was black and shaped into a topknot.

He is always seen wearing a cloud-patterned jinbei kimono with navy-colored pants that are tied to his shins with white kyahan guards. He also wears traditional black tabi socks and sandals similar to Tanjiro, except that his sandals have blue straps. On occasions when Sakonji travels, he wears a white cloth that covers his head and wraps around his neck.

Although he seems at first like a stern and grumpy old man, this hides an extremely compassionate personality. Although he pushes his students hard, he also cares deeply for them, seeing them as family-like, and is one of the few characters in the Demon Slayer Corps who fully trusts Nezuko to never eat a human. Likewise, he has complete confidence that Tanjiro will find a way to restore his humanity.


Not much is known about Sakonji's past, but he was a demon slayer in his youth, and was also the one responsible for capturing the hand demon. He would go on to become the Water Hashira for an undisclosed period of time, before retiring to become one of the cultivators of the Water Breath Swordsmen.


Having received a letter from Giyu Tomioka asking him to train Tanjiro Kamado, which also explained the situation of the boy and his sister, Sakonji went out of his house to find the two. Upon finding them, he stops Tanjiro from attempting to kill a demon with his knife, stating that the boy will be unable to kill the creature with such a blunt weapon. Reprimanding the youth for his question of how to properly defeat the beast, the elder watches Tanjiro struggle to find a way to dispatch the creature. Sniffing at the youth, Sakonji determines that he is no good, as he still has the scent of kindness even when confronted with demons.

Overall Abilities: Sakonji is a very powerful and capable swordsman. As a former Water Hashira, he was once one of the most powerful fighters in the Demon Slayer Corps. He single-handedly captured and imprisoned the Hand Demon on Mount Fujikasane, a notable feat considering the presumed challenge of disabling the powerful demon without killing it. As a water breath cultivator, he is both incredibly skilled and an accomplished teacher, having trained at least fifteen students in the art. Even in his old age, a young and fit Tanjiro barely kept up with him during the race and Sakonji was strong enough to turn him around and repel his attacks effortlessly.

Improved Speed: Sakonji proves to be incredibly fast; during his confrontation with the Hand Demon, he was able to catch the demon off guard and slice it several times, though the demon had already consumed several victims. He was finally able to appear behind it and end the battle with its capture.

Enhanced Sense of Smell:Sakonji has an enhanced sense of smell that allows him to sense the "interval line" - the slight pause in an enemy's movement that allows an opening to strike - and distinguish species, as well as their approximate position. This is revealed when Giyu Tomioka writes to Sakonji, asking him to train Tanjiro citing that he also possesses the same ability as the cultist.

Water Breathing: Sakonji is the main instructor of this breathing style. He taught ten breathing techniques to Tanjiro Kamado and to his successor in the former position of Water Hashira, Giyu Tomioka. The user can increase the amount of oxygen in his blood by controlling his breathing rhythm. This increases his strength and agility to match that of a demon. It is currently unknown what his skill level is when using this style, but one can assume that he was a formidable swordsman as a former Pillar.
