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

  • Karura are immensely powerful creatures of Japanese mythology. They are usually depicted as huge, humanoid beings with the wings and heads of eagles. Karura are red, can breathe fire, and can manipulate huge gusts of wind using their wings. These yokai are worshipped as Demigods in some branches of esoteric Buddhism. Karura feed on dragons and protect against poison and disease.


  • Shogoro are incredibly strange creatures of Japanese folklore. They are depicted as small gongs with legs and a face. While not dangerous, they can keep people up with their incessant ringing.
