More Fascinating Yokai

Konbanwa, everyone. It’s time for another mythical post. I hope you guys are ready to take a look at some more incredible yokai. Now, let’s go on a journey to the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

  • Kubikajiri are hyena-like creatures of Japanese mythology. They’re depicted as ghosts with disheveled hair, no legs, sunken eyes, and discolored skin. They feast on freshly buried corpses, and will often leave a disgusting mess near the gravesite.

  • Sunamura no onryo is an incredible bizarre creature of Japanese folklore. According to legend, it looks like a pumpkin monster with vines for arms and legs, and a huge gourd for a head.  It supposedly chased people at night, and is named after the town it originated in.
