An onmyouji is a practitioner of onmyōdō (陰陽道, engl.: The Way of Ying and Yang, sometimes also referred to as onmyoujutsu, 陰陽術, Ying and Yang techique), a form of traditional japanese esoteric occultism. Onmyouji are often depicted using their knowledge for divination, magic and the exorcism of spirits.

Famous historical onmyouiji include Kamo no Yasunori and Abe no Seimei. The later especially became a figure of popular culture texts during the Seimei Boom.
