Furutsubaki is a species of tree Youkai. Furutsubaki are Japanese camelia trees that have built up great power over the years. Thus, they have gained the ability to transform into beautiful women. They sometimes seduce humans and are sensitive and understanding of human emotion, being able to tell when humans are in love.
Two Furutsubaki appear in the series, identified as Furutsubaki (big) and Furutsubaki (small), both of them living with the Jinnai family. Furutsubaki (big) was brought to the house by Shinobu's youkai-loving mother, and Furutsubaki (small) was the Furutsubaki turned into a demon familiar by the witch Marguerite Steinhols until she was rescued by Shinobu and the others.

- Immortality: All Youkai have an immortal body, since they don't have a concept of lifespan. Once they reach adulthood they stop aging completely, which makes it basically impossible to determine an adult Youkai's age from their physical appearance, as they could be several centuries old but still look young.
- Invulnerability: Youkai are immune to conventional weapons and physical damage that follows the laws of physics. They are also immune to natural poisons and to things like radiation. Even weak harmless Youkai won't die if nuclear missiles were to pour down like rain. Additionally, Youkai have some resistance to interference from history and destiny.
- Shapeshifting: Furutsubaki have the ability to freely switch between their tree form and their human form, which they usually use to move more freely, as they move slowly while they are a tree. They can also drag people inside their trunks to envelop them, which will presumably kill them.
