Konichiwa, everyone! It’s Wednesday, and you know 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”!

  • Suzaku is a beautiful creature of Japanese mythology. It’s depicted as a huge bird that’s similar to a phoenix. It lives in the southern sky, and is one of the four guardians of Taoism. Suzaku represents the virtue of knowledge, and is associated with the Chinese element of fire.

  • Nure onago are depressing creatures of Japanese mythology. They resemble disheveled girls with matted, wet hair. They will smile at people, and if they smile back, the yokai will stick by their side forever. Unfortunately, they smell horrible and will often ruin a person’s life.
