Soundless Valley is the fifty-eighth episode of the Natsume Yuujinchou anime. It first aired on November 8, 2016. It is the sixth episode of Natsume Yuujinchou Go, which is the fifth season of the anime.
While out on an errand for Touko-san, Natsume is caught by two hairy-ball youkai, who influence him with dark energy and make him unable to speak. He is rescued by a bird-like youkai name Hidaka, who takes him to her 'nest' in an abandoned valley.
After a misunderstanding where Takashi is thought to be Reiko (once again!), Hidaka starts showing him around and wants to play with him. A few hours pass by before Madara arrives and takes him home.
Natsume explains losing his voice to the Fujiwaras under the pretense of having a cold.
Two days later, Hidaka appears to have her name back when they are ambushed by five hairy-ball youkai. Luckily, Madara frightens them, and they leave after returning Natsume's voice.
Natsume returns Hidaka's name and learns that Reiko had visited the valley when she was lost once and had played with Hidaka, who had waited for her return ever since.
