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”!
- Onibaba is an extremely disturbing creature of Japanese mythology. It’s depicted as a blue maniacal old woman with wild hair and an oversized mouth. It tries to collect the livers of unborn children. It will also go after human entrails. The only way to stop the Onibaba is to try to convince her that you’re too fatty to eat.
- Jinja hime are incredibly popular creatures of Japanese folklore. They’re depicted as serpentine beings with female faces and two horns. They’re also quite reclusive, and are usually never seen by humans.
