Yokai Wednesdays

Konbanwa everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more interesting yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to “The Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Must have Sake! Amazake baba are very strange creatures of Japanese mythology. They look like ordinary old women, however, don’t let this fool you! (yokai.com) They will knock on your door asking for amazake, and if you answer yes or no, you’ll become very ill. (yokai.com) The only to stop an Amazake baba, is to hang a sign on the door that reads “we don’t like sake or amazake.” (yokai.com) Upon seeing this, the yokai will leave, going to the next house.

  • I’m not gonna make a Frozen reference! Yuki onna are very dangerous monsters of Japanese folklore. They look like beautiful women with cold skin, piercing violet eyes, and long black hair. (yokai.com) These yokai can either be kind or violent depending under the circumstances. When they find humans, they can either marry them, or feed on their life force until they become frozen solid.
