Even More Mythological Beasts of Japan (Wednesday)

Konbanwa (Good Evening) everyone! I’m back to give you this week’s mythical creature. This entry might be a bit on the mature side, so you have been warned! Now let’s dive into the world of the Yokai!

  • Lightning Blade! The Reiki is a cool and dangerous creature of Japanese folklore. They are “angry Oni that don’t pass on peacefully to the next life.” (yokai.com) They are usually “surrounded by an eerie aura or glow, and likely gain supernatural powers in addition to ones that they had when they were alive.” (yokai.com) They only live to cause hell for the person that caused their demise. (yokai.com) They can only be “exorcized by a strong Buddhist priest.” (yokai.com)
