Kappa



A Japanese mythological creature that resembles a sprite or imp and that is said to enjoy playing pranks on humans. It is also said that the Kappa longs for human company and acceptance.

In recent years the Kappa was the subject of a scam on a Japanese Television program called 'Denpa Shonen'. An actor dressed up as the creature lived for three months in a wilderness area around the city on Tono, scaring locals and causing considerable protests. After the scam was revealed locals complained bitterly claiming that the Kappa had seriously disrupted their lives.
