The Near Shore ( () (がん) Shigan) is the world of living beings such as humans.

The beings from the Near Shore typically cannot sense the beings of the Far Shore,[1] although there are a few exceptions such as the Iki family.[2] Many animals and small children are still attuned with the Far Shore, so they can see its creatures.[3]
