Nuriko rOUKO
The Cho family members are introduced in the original series, OVA 1, Nuriko's light novel, Yukiyasha Den, and Genbu Kaiden. Primarily, they are a family that specializes in fabric production and clothing design. This craft has been practiced for generations, tracing its roots back to about 200 years prior to the events of the original series. The hub of their business, "Cho Dai Bansho" or "Cho House," is located in Konan's capital, Eiyou.

Primary Members

Teishin, the father of the Cho household, manages his business from afar after inheriting it from his father and his father before that. He relies on Rokou to handle the bulk of production and customer service until he retires. Most people believe the shop is exclusively Rokou's for this reason.

As the mother of three children, Ryouan worried about Ryuuen and public opinion when he took on Korin’s persona. She made the decision to send him away to find himself. Apart from that ordeal, she is very in-tune with news about the royal family and other members of the upper-class and supports her family by putting her best face forward.

Other Relatives

Brother to Teishin, Sojun preferred the mountains to the city life and made a living in Yukigase. Because Ryouan sent out word that Ryuuen was killed in the accident and not Korin to cover-up Ryuuen's cross-dressing, Sojun did not know the truth until Ryuuen revealed it to him in Yukiyasha Den.


Takiko purchasing clothing from a Cho family member in Genbu Kaiden

In Genbu Kaiden, an Unnamed Cho family member made an appearance when Takiko, Uruki, Tomite, Hatsui, Namame, and Hikitsu journeyed to Konan to find Inami. The woman possessed some trademark Cho traits, such as dark violet hair and a beauty mark which, unlike Nuriko, was under her right eye. She lived in a village about a half a day‘s walk from Eiyou and ran a small fabric shop. After the Genbu warriors paid for clothing appropriate for the Konan climate, she revealed that her family had just opened another fabric shop in the capital before giving them directions.
