How to say Domain Expansion in Japanese
What’s the Japanese original word and pronunciation for Domain Expansion in Jujutsu Kaisen?
It’s RYOIKI TENKAI. You can pronounce it as it’s written. Here are the kanji letters for it!
Domain Expansion’s original Japanese word is RYOUIKI TENKAI. It consists of two words RYOIKI and TENKAI.
RYOIKI = domain, area
TENKAI = expansion, deployment
The English translation is exactly the same meaning as the original one.
How about other characters’ techniques, like Gojo Satoru and Ryomen Sukuna?
OK, let me explain all the original Japanese names and meanins of the Domain Expansion!
Gojo Satoru – Unlimited Void
Gojo Satoru’s Unlimited Void says MURYOKUSHO in Japanese.
MU = void, nothing
RYO = amount
KU = empty, sky
SHO = place
The word MURYOKUSHO comes from a Buddhism word. It means a status that you are freed from any physical things and realize the infinity.

Ryomen Sukuna – Malevolent Shrine
Ryomen Sukuna’s Malevolent Shrine says FUKUMAMIZUSHI in Japanese.
FUKU = hide, lurk
MA = devil, demon
MI = prefix to denote the polite way
ZUSHI = a Buddhism chest with double doors
ZUSHI is kind of a Buddhism tool and originally divine stuff, but there’re demons lurking in Sukunans Zushi.
Jogo – Coffin of the Iron Mountain
The special-grade cursed spirit Jogo’s Domain Expansion, Coffin of the Iron Mountain says GAIKAN TECCHISEN in Japanese.
GAI = lid
KAN = coffin
TECCHI = surround something with iron
SEN = mountain
GAIKAN is to close the lid of a coffin, which means death. TECCHIZAN is a Buddhism word and it’s an iron mountain that surrounds the world.
Mahito – Self-Embodiment of Perfection
ZI = self
HEI = close
EN = circle
DON = bow, keep staying one place, immediately
KA = wrap, environ
I think the English word is well free translated. This is a difficult word to understand even for Japanese!
ENDON is a Buddhism word meaning “to achieve enlightenment immediately”. Mahito is so young for a cursed spirit, but he flashed the Domain Expansion in the battle. I think this kanji stands for himself.
ZI HEI is self closed, and KA is to wrap something. To create the closed space wrapped with one’s cursed energy is the very feature of the Domain Expansion technique!
Fushiguro Megumi- Chimera Shadow Garden
Phew, this is another hard word to read! Fushiguro Megumi’s Chimera Shadow Garden says KANGOANENTEI in Japanese.
KAN = fit, put something into a proper place
GO = meet, fit, match, suit
AN = dark
EN = shadow
TEI = garden
KANGO is the word meaning that a lid and a box are fitting together. ANEI is a classical way of saying “dark shadow”. So if I manage to translate it, it would be something like “a box garden of dark shadows”.
Fushiguro himself says this technique is incomplete. His domain might change like a proper box or garden.
