[Ino Mononoke roku - Day 3/30]

In the story: After the strangeness of that morning, Heitaro went to bed early: but just as Heitaro closed his eyes, dozens of gigantic bottle gourds Sprouted fell from the ceiling and hung Juuuust above his face. Heitaro simply ignored them and drifted off to sleep.. ZzZ
"稲生物怪録" or "Ino Mononoke Roku" is a (supposedly, true?) story which takes place in Miyoshi, Hiroshima, during July of 1749 – in which 16 year old "Ino Heitaro" (& his friend Gonpachi) decide to play "Hyakumonogatari"  (a game which involves telling 100 ghost stories.) as a test of courage to see which of them is the bravest! Soon after the two are visited by various ghosts, yokai and other supernatural phenomena, day & night for an entire 30 days!!! – [You can watch a telling of it here (with english subtitles)] – I'm going to try & gradually complete a yokai sticker for each day! – (Please note: I will be posting about them out of order & at my own pace.)
