JAPANESE MYTHOLOGY

The Shinto and Buddhist Gods of Japan...

HOJI

Japanese Evil Spirit

Pillar-Dwelling Fox Spirit

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.’
