Info found on yokai.com

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

  • Bakezori are extremely bizarre creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re created from forgotten sandals. Bakezori have one eye , tiny arms, and tiny legs. They love to cause mischief, and are completely harmless to humans.



  • Sansei are dangerous creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re depicted as small, human-like entities with one backwards leg. They sneak into woodcutters’ houses to steal salt. While not usually aggressive, Sansei will occasionally attack people. If a person yells “Hiderigami”!, it will flee in terror. However, if they say “Sansei”, the person will be met with a terrible fate.
