Toko Fujiwara is a motherly figure to Natsume Takashi, the main character of the Natsume Yujincho. Natsume is an orphan. When he was younger, his parents died, and he was constantly sent to live with relatives. Because of his ability to see spirits, he would scare his relatives since they don't understand what he was talking about. Eventually, Natsume moved to an old couple's [Toko an her husband] house from his father's side. Since Toko and her husband could not have children of her own she adopted 15 year old Natsume. Kind and generous Toko is like the mother Natsume never had. Natsume lovingly never wants to burden Toko and never tells her his problems. Toko is unaware of Natsume's spiritual abilities.
