Mokumoku Ren

It’s said that the way to get rid of mokumoku ren is to patch up the holes in the shoji screen. Apparently they are a supernatural commentary on poor housekeeping.

A worn-out shoji, or rice paper, screen with eyes that watch you wherever you go. Not the scariest Japanese demon I’ve encountered, but one of my favorites. There’s just something in the intersection between cute and spooky.
