The World of Hunter × Hunter (ハンター世界と文化,[1] Hantā Sekai to Bunka—lit. "Hunter World and Culture") is a fictional universe created by Yoshihiro Togashi.


The Hunter × Hunter world is composed of the ocean and the 6 continents which look similar to those of the real world (Earth), but have different locations. The new planet doesn't seem to have a confirmed name. There are 250 countries in the world and only two continents are known by name so far: the Yorbian and Azian continents. In reality, the "ocean" where these continents are is a great lake in the Dark Continent called Lake Mobius.

Beyond the geographical/physical aspects, it is also composed of many other fictional cultural aspects, including: languages, currencies, ethnicities, etc.

  • a common language is seemingly spoken in the majority of countries, which utilizes a fictional writing system;
  • a language identical to real-life English, including its writing system.[3] It is widespread enough for featuring on signs inside the Black Whale as a second language;[4]
  • a language identical to real-life Japanese, including its writing system, spoken in Jappon;[5]
    • the same language might have been used in the signboard of a dojo;[6]
