Main Profile

Kanako Yasaka is the final boss on Mountain of Faith. She is Moriya Shrine's official goddess because she defeated Suwako Moriya in the Great Suwa War. Even though she was victorious, she still let Suwako hang around the shrine because she considered her a "fellow" goddess.


During the events of Mountain of Faith, Kanako ordered Sanae to shut down the Hakurei Shrine to make Moriya Shrine the dominant shrine, but failed because of the strength of Reimu and Marisa.


Kanako gave Utsuho Reiuji nuclear powers before the events of Subterranean Animism. Kanako whispered to Utsuho that if she swallowed the god, Yatagarasu, she would be able to receive the powers of nuclear fusion. However, she misunderstood what Kanako had said and tried to use those powers to take over Gensokyo.


  • The name Kanako means "god" (神) (ka), "apple tree" (奈) (na) and "child" (子) (ko).
  • Kanako's surname Yasaka means "eight" (八) (ya) and "slope" (坂) (saka).
