Garganta (黒腔 (ガルガンタ), Garuganta; Spanish for "Throat", Japanese for "Black Cavity") is the void between worlds[1] that is mainly used by Souls that have become Arrancars and Hollows to move between Hueco Mundo, the Human World and Soul Society.


The Garganta is a featureless black void[2] connecting Hueco Mundo to other worlds. Due to its nature, the Garganta can be used to access any realm such as the Human World and Soul Society; it can also access the Dangai.[3] A turbulence of Reishi blows within Garganta. To move through it, travelers must create footholds using the Reishi.[4]


There are multiple ways in which one can access the Garganta.

  • Kūmon ( (くう) (もん), Air Gate): A spatial distortion which Gillians typically use to travel to the Human World.[5]
  • Keikaigi ( (けい) (かい) (), World-Tying Rite):[6] This technique connects the space tying two worlds together to open a portal to Garganta. The opening is generated between two large wooden posts jutting out from two large rock formations.[7]
  • Descorrer (解空 (デスコレール), Desukorēru; Spanish for "Drawing Back/Opening", Japanese for "Loosed Void"):[8] A technique used by Espada-level Arrancar, and sometimes others, to open a portal to Garganta in order to travel between the Human World and Hueco Mundo.[9]
