Kanechika Umehara (梅原鉦近) is Touma's Contracted Monk and one of the Sojo of the six Kōgon Sect districts. He is known for his perverted nature and has the reputation of being well versed about shikabanes. He mainly fights with a long bladed, thick sword.
Umehara is first introduced in chapter 23 of the manga when Ouri, Makina, Takamasa, and Itsuki traveled to Mount Goryo to undergo physical training in preparation for their upcoming war against the Unclean Bunch organization, which is led by the Unholy King, Sugamimaen.
