- kokeshi 河童こけし wooden dolls with Kappa -

Many people believe that early kokeshi were representations of girl children that were aborted or put to death after childbirth due to the inability to support a poor family of greater size.
Even the word, ko-keshi (ko o kesu 子を消す), can be loosely translated as "extinguished child" or “a child wiped out”.

It may be that kokeshi were kept as reminders of a dead child's plaything. Kokeshi are also given as charms to childless women in an effort to get pregnant. Kokeshi were kept in the family and passed down from generation to generation.

Medochi メドチ, めどち - a kind of mizuchi
The medochi use human females to have them bear their children. When the child is born, the Medochi comes to claim his child. If the woman throws the baby into the water to kill it, Medochi takes the bones with him.

Shibaten しばてん / 芝天 otter and Kappa from Tosa
Along the rivers of Kochi lived a lot of kawauso 獺魚 otters, which legends often turned into a kappa called Shibaten, or revered it in his form of a river deity Enko 猿猴 .
Like the people of Tosa, the Shibaten likes sumo wrestling and always challenges people whom he meets on the road.
Nowadays clean natural rivers without concrete banks are seldom, so the Shibaten (and the river otter) is seen much less often.

Shibaten is usually depicted as childlike, of about 1 meter hight, with a lot of hair on the body.



Maybe this river monster was once a tengu and retained the part in the name of
ShibaTEN 芝天.
SHIBA シバ can also relate to the famous dog race, Shiba ken 柴犬.

Hariko papermachee dolls of the Shibaten kappa were given to children to protect them from river accidents.

This is NOT a kappa sucking an anal soul out.
The woman is actually defending herself from the Kappa by farting at it.

夫婦河童の道祖神 Kappa Couple as Wayside Gods
from lake Megamiko 女神湖, Akanuma 赤沼
Nagano 長野県北佐久郡立科町

赤沼(女神湖)に居た河童が、一夜にして作って移り住んだ伝説のある池
A pond

Once upon a time
昔々、立科村の赤沼池(現在の女神湖・・蓼科山麓の女神湖は沼地を利用した人造湖)に河童(河童太郎)が住んでいたそうな

石の上に座って人が通ると小指を引っ掛けあって引っ張る鍵っ引き(一種の力比べ)を挑んだ。
大抵の人はそのまま沼に引き込まれてしまう。
この話(悪ふざけ)を聞いた諏訪頼遠なる剛胆な人物(侍)が、大力を出して河童(河童太郎)を小指で吊り上げた。
しかし大変心の優しいお侍さんは、退治する代わりに赤沼の池を去ることを条件に命を助けてやった。
恐れ入った河童太郎は和田宿の山(野々入)に池を作り、一夜で逃げていったという。
この池で河童を見かけたという村人が多くいて、この池は何時しか赤沼の河童が一晩で作った池---- 「夜の池」(よのいけ)と呼ばれるようになった。

何処からか連れ合いを見つけ夫婦仲良くおとなしく暮らしていると言う。
今でもこの池にそっと近づくと、水面で遊ぶ 仲の良い河童夫婦の姿 を見ることが出来るという。
