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.

So cute! I had that exact same Brownie uniform I think, back in 1964 or 1965. I will try to dig the picture out.


Wow, that brownie print on the pull over is really cute! For some reason I always thought the girl scouts were the food brownie, clearly I never actually thought about it! Now I want to be a brownie.


Oh my, how adorable!

I'm a Guider over here in the UK. The uniform they have now is really cute, but I prefer the one I had as a Brownie. The girls saw a lot of old uniforms over the past year as it was our Centenary. Are you guys all prepared for yours yet?


So cute. I love those Brownie socks!


that's so cute! I joined Girl Scouts from elementary school up until my last years as a Senior in high school.. I thought everyone in the troop had to wear the same uniform.
