JAPANESE MYTHOLOGY

The Shinto and Buddhist Gods of Japan...

GAKI

Japanese Starvation Spirit

Ghosts. There are 36 categories of them

They are mostly just looking for a little sustenance and somewhere warm to stay. Human bodies are so inviting.

It’s rather like having malaria if a GAKI gets in. Shivers, sweating and a gradual wasting.
