Konbanwa, 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”!

  • Tomokazuki are mischievous creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted as deep-diving women that gather sea creatures. They lure people into the deep sea, eventually drowning them. People can ward them off by wearing magic charms.


  • Tanuki Tsuki is a very strange phenomena that occurs in Japanese legends. The name refers to a person being possessed by a Tanuki. During the possession, the human will become a huge glutton, and even eat spoiled food. They also begin to talk too much and will have random bursts of violence.
