One of the "realms" or "worlds" discussed and dealt with in anime such as Yu Yu Hakusho, specifically. In this anime, there are three: Makai-demon world; Reikai-spirit world; and Ningenkai-human/mortal world.
It is from this place that all demons originated, infiltrating human world through portals.
The control of these portals becomes a major issue in the series.
Later on, introduced as being ruled by three strong demons, Yomi, Raizen, and Mukuro.
