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

  • Konaki Jiji is a mischievous creature of Japanese mythology. It’s depicted as a incredible small old man with shape-shifting powers. It can transform into the shape of a wailing baby, and this is to lure prey. If picked up, this devious demon will increase its weight until its victim’s body gets crushed.


  • Ashiarai Yashiki is a massively tall creature of Japanese folklore. It’s depicted as a monumental disembodied foot that crashes the ceilings of homes in the dead of night. It will demand to be washed, and if the person complies, it’ll vanish into thin air.
