The Afterworld (あの
The spiritual plane is divided between three sections of planes, where the gods who govern the entire Universe reside. It is divided into; Enma Realm, Kaiō Realm, the Kaiōshin Realm, and Hell. The Living world is located beneath the Afterworld, which is hermetically sealed by a barrier.
Main article: EnmaEnma serves as the judge in charge of deciding whether a soul enters Heaven or Hell, though he can only judge the soul of those who died on Earth.
Accessing the Afterlife
The most typical way for a mortal to access the afterlife is simply — they must die. Once they die, their soul passes from the living world into the Afterlife, starting at Serpent Road before moving to the Devil Realm to be judged.
However, uniquely some people can access the Afterlife without dying first. Typically, these beings are gods, possess some form of teleportation, or both. God is capable of accessing the afterlife though an unknown means. Son Gokū, through his Teleportation, can access the afterlife by sensing Kaiō of the North's ki. Whis is also capable of accessing the afterlife from the living world, taking approximately half an hour to do so. Kaiōshin, through Kai-Kai, can move between the afterlife and the living world.
