Yokai Wednesdays

All creatures found on Yokai.com

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

  • Okka is an extremely bizarre creature of Japanese folklore. It’s depicted as a tiny, yet bulbous yokai with a bright red body, large eyes, a tail, and two clawed feet. It has been portrayed in many scrolls, and has many other names.

  • Furuogi is a creature with an unknown backstory. It’s depicted as hairy, and squat being with a folding fan sprouting out of its back. Its name was discovered much later than its appearance. I would love to find out more about this yokai, and I hope that some research will come out soon.
