You can obtain Inugami Heads in Shin Megami Tensei 5 Vengeance after defeating Inugami. However, you must first talk to Baphomet, who is located in Da'at Shimegawa, near the Container Yard Leyline. You will find him sitting in one of the many warehouses. Talk to him to start the Magic from the East side quest.

Head out of the warehouse and you can spot plenty of Inugamis in front of you. Keep in mind that the number of heads you will acquire depends on how many Inugamis you defeat during the particular encounter.

This demon will respawn after a few short minutes in the Da'at Shimegawa region close to Baphomet, so do not worry too much if you run out of them.

Defeating Inugami is quite simple as it is one of the game's weakest demons. It is weak to Light and Ice Spells and its attack is Fire-based. At this point in the story, you should have access to Tao Isonokami. She has Hama spells in her arsenal that can be used to take down Inugami.

Alternatively, if you have Apsaras or Jack Frost, you can also kill it with their Bufu Spells. You can also purchase Light and Ice Shards from Cadaver's Hollow, which you can also use to kill Inugamis.

After you collect five Inugami Heads in Shin Megami Tensei 5 Vengeance, you can head to Baphomet to complete his request and receive Vile Talisman as the reward.
