Hello Bookworms, I am back with… In Search Of Monsters!
About The Feature:
As time passes by, I become even more intrigued by legends and even more obsessed with them. I am completely in love with different folklores deriving from different countries. Still, this feature is a fun way to learn a little bit about these creatures. If you wish for more informative post, check out my Creature Feature.
Today’s creature is Ashi-magari, or the leg turner. There’s not a lot of information about it. This ghost-like creature comes from the folklore of Kagawa Prefecture on Shikoku, Japan. Basically, Ashi-magari is a soft creature (Remember Ittan-Momen?), like a kitten’s fur, which wraps itself around a traveler’s leg at night, not letting them walk. It is supposed to be invisible (even creepier). With that being said, my “interview” with this creature didn’t go as planned.
Let’s face it though: Ashi-magari had nothing to do with my fall; I am just “that graceful”.
