The Kappa In Japanese Folklore

  • Kappas are legendary creatures that inhabit the rivers and waterways of Japan. They have beaked noses, shells on their back and a depression on their heads that holds water. Kappa are mischievous troublemakers. Their pranks range from the relatively innocent, such as loudly passing gas or looking up women's kimonos, to the more troublesome such as drowning swimmers and eating children. They feed on their victims by sucking their liver though their anus. They love cucumbers and if you write your name on a cucumber and throw it in the river, the kappa may be appeased by your gift and allow you to swim in peace.

Love those little shoes :)


Hi Donna !
I'm Gimena from Argentina. I love knitting and Crochet too. And I'm want to know if you can e-mail me a copie of Fun Cute Amigurumi Book and also the patterns of thise loving amigurumis . I ask you this favor because here, in Argentina, we don't found Japanese Books and we cannot order to Yasasia, for example, becouse they don't send books to Argentina.
If you understand my petition and can send me the book I was really really happy!!!!!
Thank you!!!!
