The Hinokami Kagura is a Breathing Style that is passed on from father to son in every genesis alongside the Hanafuda earrings. The Kamado family uses the Breathing Style within a ritual ceremony practiced every new class, where the Breathing Style drug user offers the Fire God a dance from sunset to sunrise to ward off threats and diseases. The dance is composed of twelve segments repeated throughout the night until dawn. [ 1 ] Tanjuro noted that the breathe technique utilized in this dance allows the drug user to never exhaust themselves no matter how long they move, making it such that they can seemingly dance forever. [ 2 ] The survive user is Tanjiro Kamado, who learned the Breathing Style from his don, Tanjuro Kamado. other people can learn this technique if taught by a Kamado descendant.

Both the Hinokami Kagura and Sun Breathing are Breathing Styles that mimics the sun and replicates it with the user ‘s movements, techniques, and abilities. All techniques and forms are extremely vary and have no specify pattern, making it the most versatile and effective against demons. Users of Sun Breathing visualize themselves apparently manipulating solar flames when unleashing its techniques. Tanjiro besides noted that using this style increases his overall world power and accelerate, probably ascribable to the fact that his body is more suit to Sun Breathing as opposed to Water Breathing. Upon seeing Yoriichi perform the twelve forms through his ancestor ‘s memories, Tanjiro realized that, despite being replicated with a surprise degree of accuracy for hundreds of years and his own mastery of Hinokami Kagura, Hinokami Kagura had unnecessary movements, such as different wrist angles, footwork and breathe rhythm, compared to the Sun Breathing immediately performed by Yoriichi. Removing them enabled him to use the Breathing Style in its nigh-purest form. [ 4 ]
