The creatures generally known as "Mushi" are neither plants nor animals, they differ from other forms of life such as the micro-organisms and the fungi. Instead they resemble the primeval body of life. Their existence and appearance are unknown to many and only a limited number of humans are aware of them. Ginko is a "Mushi-shi" who travels around to investigate and find out more about the "Mushi". In the process, he also lends a helping hand to people who face problems which may be related to the "Mushi".
