•About this Yokai•
Hitotsume Nyudo. (JP: 一つ目入道)
[Ino Mononoke roku - Day 1/30 (part 1)]
• Related Yokai: Hitotsume Kozo (& other cycloptic yokai.) • Appears: Night of the 1st.
• In the story: On the first night of the month: just as heitaro laid down to sleep, A Gigantic, one eyed monster with a glowing eye, burst through Heitaros wall, grabbing him! - Heitaro managed to stay calm and wriggle out, and as he reached to draw his sword: he spotted the monster burrowing itself under his floor!! it got away before he could attack it... Meanwhile Gonpachi was dealing with his own problems...
"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.)
