Aka Manto
A ghost in a red mantle that offers either red or blue toilet paper rolls in bathrooms, then kills whoever answers based on their choice: flaying for red, strangulation for blue.

Late at night, in the dimly lit corridors of an old school, there was a particular restroom that everyone avoided. It was the restroom at the farthest end of the building, where the shadows seemed to linger a little longer and the air felt unusually cold. This restroom was said to be haunted by a malevolent spirit known as Aka Manto.

Aka Manto, or the "Red Cloak," was a figure of terror in the whispers of students and the warnings of janitors. He was described as a tall, imposing figure draped in a flowing red cloak. His face was always hidden behind a mask, but those who had caught a glimpse claimed he was unnervingly handsome, with a charm that belied his sinister intentions.

According to legend, Aka Manto would appear to anyone who was unfortunate enough to use the restroom late at night. He specifically haunted the stall at the furthest wall, waiting silently for his next victim. As the story goes, if someone was sitting on the toilet, they would suddenly hear a soft, chilling voice asking a question: "Do you want red paper or blue paper?"

The Yuki Onna Japanese Mountain Ghost - Japanese Mythology

In the snowy mountains of Hirosaki, in the Mutsu Province, an intrepid samurai journeyed through the thick, relentless snowfall. The world around him was a cold, white expanse, the silence of the snow broken only by the crunching of his footsteps. As he made his way through the treacherous path, a strange woman suddenly appeared before him, seemingly materializing from the swirling snow.

The woman was strikingly beautiful, with long, flowing black hair and a pale face that almost glowed against the whiteness of her kimono. In her arms, she held a small, tightly bundled child. She approached the samurai with an air of desperation and sorrow, her voice barely a whisper over the howling wind.

"Please, kind sir," she implored, "could you hold my child for a moment? My arms grow weary from the cold."

She asked the samurai to hold the child, her arms weak from the cold.

The samurai, wise and cautious, recognized the signs. He had heard tales of the Yuki Onna, the Snow Woman, who wandered the mountains during snowstorms, luring travelers to their doom. Understanding the potential danger, he subtly prepared himself. Before agreeing to her request, he removed his dagger and gripped it firmly between his teeth, its blade gleaming coldly in the dim light.

see the woman clearly struggling to hold the child, agreed to help.

"Of course, I will help you," the samurai said, his voice steady and calm.

He took the child from the woman's arms, ensuring the dagger's blade was pointed directly at the child's head. Time seemed to stretch as he held the surprisingly heavy bundle. The child felt as if it were growing heavier with each passing moment, yet the samurai's resolve did not waver. His grip on the dagger remained firm, a silent warning to the strange woman.

After what felt like an eternity, the woman gently took the child back from the samurai. Her eyes, previously filled with sorrow, now shone with gratitude.

"Thank you for your kindness," she said softly. "You have shown great courage and wisdom."

To the samurai's surprise, the Yuki Onna did not disappear into the storm. Instead, she bestowed upon him treasures of unimaginable worth as a token of her appreciation. The snowstorm seemed to part for a moment, allowing the samurai to continue his journey unimpeded.

The Tale of Yuki Onna and the Yukinko
The mountains of Japan are known for their breathtaking beauty, especially in the winter when the snow blankets the landscape in a serene, white hush. But for those who travel these paths on snowy, stormy nights, the mountains hold a darker, more chilling secret. Travelers whisper of a strange woman, ethereal and haunting, who appears in the midst of blizzards, holding a bundled child in her arms. This woman is none other than the Yuki Onna, the snow woman, and her child, the Yukinko.

It is said that on the coldest nights, when the wind howls like a banshee and the snow falls so thick you can barely see your own hand, the Yuki Onna emerges from the storm. Her appearance is both beautiful and terrifying—long black hair cascading over her white kimono, her face pale as the snow around her, and eyes that seem to pierce through the blizzard. She stands silently, cradling her bundled child, waiting for an unsuspecting traveler to come her way. When she spots one, she approaches slowly, her footsteps silent in the snow, and pleads with them to hold her child for just a moment.

For the weary traveler, the request seems innocent enough. The woman appears so fragile, her child so small and helpless. But this is where the danger lies. Should the traveler agree, they take the child into their arms. At first, it feels like nothing more than a typical infant. But within moments, the child begins to grow heavier. What starts as a light burden quickly becomes unbearable. The traveler’s arms ache, their legs buckle, and soon they find themselves unable to move under the crushing weight. Meanwhile, the snow piles up around them, faster and faster, until they are buried alive and freeze to death.

Refusing the woman’s request is no safer. If the traveler shakes their head and steps away, the Yuki Onna’s demeanor changes instantly. Her eyes flash with anger, and with a swift, ghostly strength, she shoves them off the mountain path, sending them tumbling into a snowy ravine where they meet a frozen demise.

But legends say there is a way to survive this deadly encounter. If a traveler can endure the weight of the Yukinko, holding on despite the crushing burden, they will gain supernatural strength. This strength is said to be a gift from the spirits of the mountains, a reward for their bravery and endurance.

So, if you ever find yourself wandering the snowy mountain paths of Japan on a stormy night, beware the Yuki Onna and her child. The beauty of the snow may hide a deadly danger, and only those with the courage and strength to withstand the challenge will survive to tell the tale.

The Legend of the Aubura Sumashi - Japanese Mythology

The Legend of the Aubura Sumashi - Japanese Mythology
Today we're going to learn about a legend that has been passed down through generations. There is a legend about a spirit that is thought to be the ghost of a person who stole oil and then fled into the woods. This ghost with its unnaturally round head and piercing gaze is called the Abura-sumashi.  Born out of guilt and remorse, this spirit's story is one of punishment and transformation

In misty mountain passes of Kumamoto Prefecture. The mist curls around ancient trees and craggy rocks, it hides more than just the terrain. Here, in these secluded mountain paths, the whispers of the locals speak of a spirit known as Abura-sumashi. In the dim light of dusk, when the sun has dipped below the horizon and the night begins its slow creep, the atmosphere changes. The once serene forest takes on an eerie hush. It’s during these dark nights, when the wind whistles through the trees, that the tales of Abura-sumashi make their rounds. This is when the villagers hunker down in their homes, sharing stories in hushed tones, glancing warily at the forest edges as if the spirit might emerge from the darkness at any moment.

Abura-sumashi is no ordinary ghost. With an unnaturally large, round head, it is said to haunt these mountains, lurking in the shadows, waiting. To the villagers of Kumamoto, this spirit is a deeply ingrained element of their folklore. They say that if you listen closely, sometimes you can hear faint, almost imperceptible whispers carried by the wind—a spectral presence observing the living, bound to these mountains by an ancient curse. As the night deepens, every rustle of leaves and every snap of a twig seems to carry the weight of the legends spoken around hearths and fires. Walking these paths alone under the cloak of darkness requires more than just courage. It requires a respectful nod to the unseen, a recognition of the age-old stories that breathe life into the very ground,  For here in Kumamoto Prefecture, Abura-sumashi isn't just a story; it's a living, whispering reminder of the past, waiting to be noticed.
