Food (「食べ物」?; tabemono; food)is a vital piece of Ōkami's world, providing Amaterasu a means of revitalization should she be killed in battle. Doing so requires the use of the Astral Pouch, an item found in the River of the Heavens. This acts a stomach of sorts for Amaterasu, yet noticeably, Chibiterasu lacks this trait in his own adventures.


Obtaining food is a rather simple task. When food is not readily available, Amaterasu need only find a source of dirt and Power Slash it until food appears or follow a similar process, Power Slashing or headbutting pots and other breakable items. This will net her various varieties of foods, with different Food Point values. Ranging from 1 point all the way up to 200, Amaterasu need only obtain food going over the 200 point limit to fill an Astral Pouch, which will revive her upon a potential death. However, if food continues to be collected even after filling the Pouch, it will convert to a certain amount of Yen instead.

There are only a handful of foods that will max out Amaterasu's Food Point counter and one important item received from Merchants who accept Demon Fangs as currency: the Golden Peach. The Golden Peach, when used, will completely fill Amaterasu's Astral Pouch, allowing her to convert any food after that to Food Points for another Pouch or Yen for other spending purposes, such as the acquisition of Divine Instruments, Dōjō techniques, or other useful Items.

Non-food items

Contrary to what would be understood as food, the Feedbags and Fish that Amaterasu carries around with her, either after purchase or catching them, cannot be converted to Food Points and rather can be used to feed Animals or sold for Yen to a Merchant.

Amaterasu is also unable to cook for herself or hunt other animals to obtain food, following along her pattern of consuming primarily vegetation and on occasion, prepared foods left out for her or other patrons. This falls in line with her good nature and desire to bring only good to the people of Nippon, a wish that seems to extend to the land's creatures as well, as she is seen as having good relations with many Animals, other wolves, and even dogs.

Throughout Nippon, a brief description of a particular food item will accompany the consumed ration only once. Without a true list of all of the morsels of foods Amaterasu has certainly enjoyed, the following is a master list taken from the official guidebook for the PS2, Ōkami Official Guidebook Famitsu Capcom.
