Description

“Onogawa was a Sumo wrestler of recent years. He had a bout with Tanigawa and was awarded the rank of champion. A while ago, he heard that a monster was appearing every night in his master’s castle. One night, as he was on watch for his master, an onyudo appeared and noticed Onogawa; it stretched out its long neck and laughed at him. He seized the creature and took a close look at it – it turned out to be an old badger in the form of an onyudo” An onyudo is a ghost with a long neck and three eyes, Onogawa is shown here unafraid and nonchalently blowing smoke in its face.
