when kikyou died and was cremated with the jewel, the reincarnation was in Kagome and she had the jewel of four souls embedded in her side.
and kagome also has unique skills such as powers from her hand, and the ability to blow things up and sever/dismember them. not many people have this ability, it's one in a million, and as she physically resembles kikyou that proves the point.
kagome has kikyou's maturity and seriousness, and ability to solve puzzles/problems which kikyou was good at. she is also very stubborn, and has a mature attitude to things. and she can make kikyou's spells disappear and can utter the subdugation spell on Inuyasha. she's a witch too.
she is a modern day schoolgirl in japan, as she dresses in the classic sailor uniform with long loose socks and brown shoes. she has a very pretty wardrobe.
she has the same eyes as kikyou, and the same makeup knowledge (as she wears makeup sometimes). and from the side (profile view) she looks exactly like kikyou. they have the same hair... kagome can break kikyou's barriers and most of her spells. and kagome is more powerful than kikyou because she is more beautiful and has more power to draw men to her.
Since Kagome is Kikyo's reincarnation, Inuyasha counted on her to be a good archer. Her archery was awful in the beginning, but with a lot of practice she did get better at it.
Kagome, like Kikyo, begins to harbor feelings for Inuyasha, which are complicated when Urasue resurrects Kikyo. Since Inuyasha likes whichever girl he's with best, Inuyasha's bond with Kagome is often compromised when Kikyo crops up in the series. Still, Kagome follows Inuyasha and continues to aid him in the fight against Naraku.
