Sanshō is an elderly woman with white hair and small black eyes. She wears a beige-coloured hat and two large strands of her hair hang down below each side of her face. She also wears a large pair of glasses.

Now she teaches her son the secret of Curry Of Life recipe as well as taking care of Ranmaru.
