Kappas must have a great time at fiestas (built in dipping bowl), but need umbrellas in bad weather to avoid overflow
No tanukis? :(
As cute as real tanuki are, a mythical tanuki’s defining physical feature is its massive fur covered testicles. Large enough for it to sit on like a beanbag chair. That could be… problematic.
Maybe a more raccoon-like creature instead? Fluffier and less ballsy.
There’s a solid argument that the testicle thing was a later addition to the myth, though. And added due to a sort of-almost joke related to the use of actual racoon dog scrotum skin as a surface for hammering out gold leaf. Basically, the “joke” suggested how much more useful said skin would be if the animal’s scrotum were bigger.
You may now be horrified.
