Mythical Beasts Of Japan (Wednesdays)

  • Power of prehensile hair! Hari-onago: The Hari-onago is a beautiful, but deadly creature of Japanese folklore. It appears as an ordinary woman with untidy hair. (yokai.com) However, if you look close enough, you can see that  each of the hairs is outfitted with an incredibly sharp hook. (yokai.com) The Hari-onago mainly preys on single men that walk along dark alleyways at night. (yokai.com) When approached, the Hari-onago will smile shyly, and “if the smile is returned, she attacks”! (yokai.com) She lets her hair go wild, and it rips apart the defenceless victim with great speed. (yokai.com) The only way to stop a Hari-onago is to outrun it back home and to wait until sunrise to go back outside. (yokai.com)
