Sota Higurashi is Kagome's younger brother. He is one of the few people who knows that his sister travels back and forth between the Feudal era and the real world and knows that InuYasha is a half demon. Sota thinks InuYasha is a cool person and is supportive of InuYasha's and Kagome's relationship.
In the English dub version of the InuYasha anime series by VIZMedia with the Ocean Group, Sota was voiced by two different voice actors.
He was originally voiced by Saffron Henderson but after leaving the Ocean Group temporarily, Sota was then voiced by Rebecca Shoichet.
