Saburo spots Tanjiro Kamado’s return to the mountains and, as night falls, invites him to spend the night at his home, aware that demons can appear in the dark. Although Tanjiro initially refuses, Saburo manages to convince him. Later, over dinner, Saburo explains to Tanjiro that demons come out at night and that he could have been attacked if he had continued his journey. So he advises him to head for the mountain in the morning. Before going to sleep, Tanjiro asks if demons can enter houses, to which Saburo confirms that they can, but the powerful spirit hunters eliminate them. Tanjiro remains skeptical, wondering if Saburo is simply a loner, living alone after the tragic loss of his family. In the morning, as the sun rises, illuminating the snowy forest, Tanjiro leaves Saburo’s house and returns home.
