Konichiwa everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to go on another journey to “The Land Of The Rising Sun”. I hope you guys are ready for some cool new mythical beasts. Now, let’s get started!
- Mountain dude! Sansei are very strange and dangerous creatures of Japanese folklore. They are only about 2 to 3 feet tall, have only 1 leg, however they can sure be disastrous to deal with! (yokai.com) Sansei love to eat frogs and birds, and will even steal salt from houses to season them! (yokai.com) While not usually aggressive, they can attack people on some occasions. (yokai.com) You can stop the attack by yelling “Hiderigami”, however if you speak their name, many unfortunate occurrences will happen to you! (yokai.com) These include illness or having your house catch on fire. (yokai.com)
- Don’t lose your head! Nukekubi are extremely dangerous creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re very similar to the Rokurokubi, which I discussed in last week’s post. Like they Rokurokubi, Nukekubi are women with detached heads that fly around the room. (yokai.com) While Rokurokubi are not violent creatures, Nukekubi are very vicious in nature, and will occasionally suck the blood of humans and animals. (yokai.com)
