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.

Hi donna,

yes zoe is allowed to watch movies. We have a family movie night on friday or sat night. we both cuddle in bed with a bog bowl of popcorn and watch a movie....last week we watched the original Dr Doolittle with Rex Harrison! I will add a Little Bear to the list. Thanks for the recommendation. Your dresses for Ivy look great. Nice work!

I simply love the last dress you show from the Japanese design book...the little girls dress (tunic style) with the feather on the hanger...I must work on something like that.
