  • 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.
