πŸ‘Ή Japanese Ogre

A hideous creature with crooked teeth, horns and lots of hair. Called Namahage in Japanapese folklore, this character can be depicted in any number of ways – usually with a coat made of straw and a scary mask.

Tradition has it that men dress as namahage on New Year’s Eve, and ward off evil spirits from people’s homes.
