Japanese Monsters

 These pictures have been reblogged from which is an amazing site dedicated to Japanese art and culture.

The pictures were taken from 'The illustrated book of Japanese monsters: 1972'
I picked out some of my favourites;

Baku - dream eating chimera
Kubiro-oni (strangler demon)
Onmoraki (bird demon)
Tengu (bird like demon)

Rokurokuri (long necked woman)
