JAPANESE MYTHOLOGY

The Shinto and Buddhist Gods of Japan...

SHOJO

Japanese Drunken God

Japanese Sea Monkeys

These are orangutan-like Gods who live on the sea bed.

The SHOJO wear skirts made of green seaweed and they make white wine. What can they make it from? Is it brine wine?

If you are a good person, it will be a fine wine and taste delicious. But to bad folk it will taste like poison — and work as such unless they give up their evil ways.

We’ve heard of seaside trips and the dangers of sunstroke but this is Bizarre-on-Sea.
