This year for #ayokaiaday we are looking at the bizarre occurrences which took place at the Ino residence in Miyoshi, Hiroshima, during July of 1749. These occurrences all revolve around a young boy named Ino Heitaro. His story is collected in Ino mononoke roku, a collection of scrolls, books, and legends which collectively form the narrative of a supernatural phenomenon that took place 270 years ago.
On night twenty six, Heitaro was once again visited by a woman’s head. In place of a neck and body, she had only a single arm.
The head flew into Heitaro’s room and glared at him. Then she bounced about on her hand like it was a pogo stick.
Heitaro tried to ignore her, but she bounced up onto him and started petting and pawing at his face and body.
It was a rough night.
I’ll bet was; in more ways than one!
