All creatures found on yokai.com
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”!
- Tenjoname are bizarre creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted as tall entities with long tongues, paper-covered bodies, and lion-like faces. They appear in old houses, and like to lick the ceiling. Tenjoname leave black spots on the ceilings and support pillars of homes.
- Yonaki baba is an extremely emotional creature of Japanese folklore. She’s depicted as old woman with messy hair and a grey robe. She is found crying at houses with tragic backstories. The bawling spreads, like a sickness to anyone who hears it. The weeping is seen as sympathy or scorn. The house will eventually deteriorate after the yokai’s frequent visits.
