HOJI

She is an evil spirit which you should be able to avoid.

If you go to a place called Nasu and wander onto a lonely moor you may see an upright pillar. Under no circumstances go to sleep near it as HOJI lives inside and she will be tempted to come out and kill you.

No — it may be all right now. A Buddhist priest called Genno stopped for a rest and prayed the foxy spirit into submission. She has promised not to do it again. However we still think there should be a warning notice — 'Sleep Here at Your Own Risk.'

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Hoji graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Hoji movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Hoji statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Hoji. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
