Yokai Wednesdays

Konichiwa, everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us take a lot at some more yokai. I hope you guys are ready to take a dive into Asian mythology. Now, let’s get started!

  • *Howl* Myobu are incredibly beautiful creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re essentially divine fox spirits that live in shrines across Inari. (yokai.com) They are said to bring good luck and happiness to people around them. (yokai.com) In order to honor these spirits, people will leave red beans, fried tofu, and holy sake at shrines.

  •  *Shivering* Buruburu are very strange creatures of Japanese mythology. They resemble cowardly spirits and like to follow people around. (yokai.com) If they touch a person, its hair will stand on end, and they will get shivers down their spines. (yokai.com) Buruburu feed on the cowardice of humans. (yokai.com)
