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.

Gah...I am a total garage sale freak. I ADORE them. And I have the same problem of finding little treasures that the blogworld loves, but then I get them home and remember *I* don't actually adore them. I have a few things set aside for giveaways from such mistakes. :lol:


BTW...I just awarded you on my blog. Have a peek. :)


A dangerous habit garage saleing is.. I've had to stop cold turkey, it wasn't easy :)
