Mushishi is mostly comprised of stand-alone stories featuring mushi, ethereal creatures often described as the most basic life forms. Neither good nor evil, they simply exist. Mushi exhibit supernatural powers which affect people and wildlife in strange and sometimes problematic ways. However, the mushi follow basic instincts and are merely trying to survive in the world.

Though most people are unaware of their existence, a few are able to see the mushi. Ginko, the protagonist who has taken it upon himself to become a mushi master, is one of these people. Throughout the series, he travels across Japan and researches these creatures. Ginko is unique in that the mushi are drawn to him. This forces him not to stay in one place too long or else he risks attracting dangerous quantities of mushi to the area. On his journey, he follows rumors of mushi and does his best to help those suffering from the troubles they have caused. Ginko approaches the mushi not as pests but as a way to deeper understand the ebb and flow of life.
