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.

Yum! And great idea! But here's my question: does it work if you throw a stick of butter in too? :)


What a cool idea. We love popcorn and I was horrified to read an article about the dangers of microwave popcorn (the prepackaged kind). . . apparently the "butter flavor" is carcenogenic?

Relieved to see that no one has found any bad info out about muslin in a microwave!



I love this, who woulda thought? Im definiatly trying this!


Found your site via Angry Chicken's comments. We've tried the paper lunch bag for popping. This looks neat.
