As the holidays draw nearer, I thought I’d give you all something real great this month! After all….nothing quite says Christmas like a good bum stroking!
I can already feel the weird looks directed my way so let me introduce you to Kurote, hailing from the Noto peninsula in Ishikawa!
Kasamatsu Jingobei was a samurai living in the Noto peninsula in a nice house with his wife. One day, she went to the restroom and she felt a hand reach up out of the toilet and stroke her butt. Understandably concerned, she called her husband in and he saw a big, hairy black hand reaching out of the toilet, stroking the air. He did what any irritated husband with a sharp thing would do……..he cut the hand off and shoved it in a box.
Three priests came to Jingobei’s house a few days later and told him they sensed a mysterious presence in his house. He showed the priests the hand that he had cut off and the second priest confirmed that it belonged to a kurote living in humans’ toilets. The third priest immediately turned into a 9 foot black haired monster and claimed the hand as his. The three priests vanished right after.
Sounds like a fun time, right? Jingobei’s story doesn’t quite end here. He was walking home at night much later when a quilt fell from the sky on top of him. He was lifted seven feet into the air and body-slammed into the ground. When he woke up, the sword he had used to cut off Kurote’s hand had vanished.
Next time you go to the toilet, lend a thought to Kurote and if you should feel something stroking you….well……have a sword handy.
