•About this Yokai.•
Hajikkaki - 恥っかき
A utterly pathetic, embrassing, short, shy, stumpy fat ghost, spawned from spirits of those who died of UTTER HUMILIATION. It dislikes being around others so much that it buries itself underground ... its said that If you’re digging and you unearth one... bury him deeper than before, or you will suffer a similar humiliating fate.
•Early appearances & History •
Another yokai who appears in early hyakki yagyo emaki picture scrolls, given a name, but had no proper description included. – The illustration & lore which people have attatched to it, seems to be based on a spirit from Chinese folklore called the shahyōchū (謝豹虫). [last slide]
