The Hinokami Kagura, which is also known as the Dance of the Fire God, is a breathing style that is only known by the members of the Kamado family. Although it is traditionally passed on from father to son along with the hanafuda earrings, Tanjuro Kamado died before he was able to teach his son Tanjiro the proper technique.

Despite not being taught properly, Tanjiro was able to recall the breathing style from watching his father during the annual ritual ceremony. Since then, Tanjiro has been using the technique to defeat several demons including Enmu in Mugen Train.

By the end of the film, Rengoku is fatally injured by the fight with the Upper Moon demon Akaza. He then asks Tanjiro to visit his family and let them know about what had happened to him. Interestingly, Rengoku also revealed that his family may have some information about Hinokami Kagura.

It has already been confirmed that Yukaku-hen will follow Tanjiro, Nezuko, Inosuke, and Zenitsu as they join the Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui to the Yoshiwara red-light district.

However, there is a possibility that the second season of Kimetsu no Yaiba will first follow Tanjiro as he visits Rengoku's home to deliver the news to Rengoku's father and younger brother. Hopefully, the rest of the season could reveal even more about Hinogami Kagura.

Demon Slayer: Kimentsu no Yaiba - Yukaku-hen has not yet been given an official release date. However, there is a possibility that Season 2 will premiere before the end of Fall.
