About The Yokai “Kamikiri”
“This little yokai is called the Kamikiri, the hair cutter, a mischievous hair thief demon who appears out of nowhere and loves to snap off locks of people’s hair unexpectedly. I read somewhere that these creature sometimes cut the hair of young women before their wedding day, to prevent the marriage from happening! But don’t worry, they only do it, if the bride is about the marry a bad person!” -Székely Beáta
