•About this yokai•
Yukinbo (JP: 雪坊) - "Snow boy"
These diligent young spirits are said to be working hard for the mountain gods of Wakayama prefecture. - Early mornings when it has snowed overnight, its traditionally said that this yokai hops around trees & plants with its big foot, leaving strange footprints and hazardous tree wells all over the mountain sides - [Local skiers hate him.] - it wears traditional straw snow gear called "Mino" to keep the snow out of its face.
PS: The snow rabbits are called YukiUsagi ( 雪うさぎ )
