“Skewered Dumping Kozo” (JP: 串刺首坊主) • Type: “Namakubi.” • Date of appearance: 16th Night.

[Ino Mononoke roku - Day 16/30]

•In the story: Heitaro was finally almost having a goodnight’s sleep for the first time in 2weeks, but just as he was about to nod off, he opened his eyes & about a dozen or so skewered dumpling’s hopped into his room.. - wait— those aren’t dumplings!! - Rubbing the sleep from his eyes, he saw they where actually skewered heads of young monks about his age!!! They bounced around his pillow and made rude faces at him all night while strange music played from nowhere...  Heitaro, was annoyed, but chose to just ignore them and eventually fell asleep. When he woke up they where gone.
"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.)
