  • Brush! Hahakigami are extremely bizarre creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re basically sentient brooms that love to sweep up broken leaves. In olden times, brooms were considered to be holy instruments that were used in ritual purification ceremonies. These spirits are used as magic charms for a safe childbirth.
