Tree of Promise is the eighteenth episode of the Natsume Yuujinchou anime. It first aired on February 2, 2009. It is the fifth episode for Zoku Natsume Yuujinchou, which is the second season of the anime.


Natsume encounters a spirit who was "enslaved" by his grandmother Reiko 50 years ago by writing his name on a torn page from the Book of Friends, and tying it to a tree in a forest.

He has been searching for it for years, but the spirit hasn't found it yet. Can Natsume help locate this torn page? What was Reiko's true intentions in tying it high above in a tree?


  • The story of Kirinoha only occurs in the anime, while the part when Hinoe telling the others about her first meeting with Reiko was adapted from Special 6 in Volume 6 of the manga series.
