Yokai Wednesdays

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

  • Nyeheheh! Kyokotsu are very strange creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted as skeletal spirits that have tangled hair, and a ragged shroud. (yokai.com) These yokai are spirits of skeletons disposed in wells. (yokai.com) When somebody comes too close to the well, the yokai will rise up, scared the unfortunate soul. (yokai.com)

  • Draco Towel! Shiro uneri are very dangerous creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re created out of dish towels that are used way too much after its prime. (yokai.com) This causes the towel to take a form of a cloth dragon. (yokai.com) They fly through the air, looking for cleaning staff to attack. (yokai.com) They will wrap their bodies around the person’s neck, causing them to pass out from the pungent odor. (yokai.com) On rare occasions, Shiro uneri will kill servants by strangulation. (yokai.com) (How incredibly bizarre!)
