In Search Of Monsters #15 : Ashi-magari

Hello Bo3cf8c-monstersokworms, 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”.

  1. Yay! A monster!
    Maybe you’re not “that graceful”, but a customary victim of Ashi…(…can I call you Ashi, my dear monster?). It’s a pity this creature is not that talkative, though. I’m sure you had many witty questions for it! 😉
    Also, it’s funny, because “magari” – and I’m sure you know it – means “maybe” or “if only/I wish” in English LOL.
