An abumi-guchi as depicted in Toriyama Sekien's Gazu Hyakki Tsurezure Bukuro

An abumi-guchi is a furry yokai in Japanese mythology.


The abumi-guchi (髏吝哨, lit. "stirrup mouth") is illustrated in Sekien Toriyama's Gazu Hyakki Tsurezure Bukuro.


The abumi-guchi is a type of tsukumo-gami formed from a stirrup, usually one that once belonged to a fallen soldier. It is said that the abumi-guchi will wait where it lies for the fallen solider to return.
