Yokai Wednesdays

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

  • Man In The Moon! Katsura otoko is a very strange creature of Japanese mythology. It’s depicted as an incredibly handsome man that lives on the moon. (yokai.com)  He appears on moonlit nights. (yokai.com)When staring at this creature for a long period of time, he will extend his hand for you to shake. (yokai.com) However, if you do accept the offer, your lifespan will diminish, and you could also drop dead! (yokai.com)


  • O_O!!!!! Ao nyobo is an incredibly scary creature of Japanese mythology. She resembles an ancient noblewoman, however this is just a disguise! (yokai.com) She has a powdery white face and blackened teeth. (yokai.com) She’s known as the spirit of misfortune and poverty, and will devour anyone who enters her old and abandoned house.
