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

  • Haradashi are extremely weird creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted in many forms such as: headless torsos, elderly nuns, or funny female monsters. The most defining feature of a Haradashi is the silly-looking face on its huge stomach. These yokai like to make people laugh, and love to cheer up those who are lonely.

  • Kojin are strange creatures of Japanese folklore. They resemble scaly, black humanoid figures with ugly faces. These yokai are aquatic, and are extremely talented at weaving silk. It’s said that their silk is of the finest quality, and is even waterproof. Kojin are very emotional, and tend to cry frequently. However, instead of tears, pearls run down their cheeks.
