Seen in Kyoto

Written on April 2, 2012

This will be my last post from my trip to Japan this spring.  On Wednesday, 4 April, I will be updating the webshop–and I’ll also be sending out orders that were placed during the last two weeks.

    Youkai! <3 I love obake/youkai-themed things. The skeleton is probably an Odokuro, a type of gigantic skeleton formed by gathering the bones of those who starved to death. Another similar kind arises from the bones of the warrior dead left on battle grounds, bitter and unable to pass on because they did not have a proper burial. Either one will eat living people. The umbrella is a 100-year-old creature which gains a spirit! (But what is it with Japan and the long tongues?)

    The one-eyes rice farmer is a play-on story; the story of Dorotabo. Someone told it here. http://dr-yokai.blogspot.com/2011/10/dorotabo-rice-paddy-man-dirty-yokai.html

    What fun photos! Thanks for sharing.
