Yokai Wednesdays (Every 2nd Wednesday of the Month)

Konbanwa everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to go on another journey into mythology.  I hope you guys are ready for an interesting post. Now, let’s get started!

  • Ugly with a good heart. Ouni are very ugly, but kind creatures of Japanese folklore. They usually resemble old women with angry faces and bodies covered in long black hair. (yokai.com) Despite their fearsome appearance, they can be quite useful when visiting a  home. (yokai.com) When appearing at a house, Ouni will often ask for a meal or to spend the night. (yokai.com) If they are welcomed inside, they will spin an enormous amount of thread for the family, and then will leave without a trace. (yokai.com)

  • Grave Robber! Moryo are despicable creatures of Japanese mythology. They are depicted as childlike, and have red or black skin, long ears, red eyes, and long,beautiful hair. (yokai.com) They feed on dead animals, and have a nasty tendency to rob graves and disturb funerals. (yokai.com) They do fear tigers, and oak trees though, so people of ancient China would plant these trees near a graveyard. (yokai.com)
