Ten Ridiculous Japanese Monsters

Sometimes when tales told around the campfire get passed around, details are added along the way that make you scratch your head. The Geekout rounded up the weirdest monsters from Japanese folklore for a list that will make you more likely giggle than cower in a corner. Pictured here is the Akaname, a monster that will come into your bathroom at night and …clean it up! Really! That's the kind of monster I'd really like to have around, wouldn't you?

Hmm...this bathroom cleaning monster...

It resembles a monster that Pasquale (Brady/Wimmer), from my in-the-top-seven favorite comic strip , Rose is Rose, would imagine. There is a bath-tub drain monster we don't see in the comic, it's only mentioned when P. is in the tub, speculating about its nature and motives.

The next time Pasquale is in the tub going on about the drain monster, I will visualize this bathroom cleaning beast.
