[[Image:ōnyūdō.jpg|thumb|ōnyūdō in ‘Yokai Jiten’]] The '''ōnyūdō''' (lit. "large monk") appears in numerous Japanese folk tales. ==Description== Onyūdō appearance varies from story to story, but he is always big, ranging anywhere from 2 meters (6 ft 6 in) tall to as large as a mountain. Some stories describe him as a fox or [[tanuki]] (raccoon dog) that has shape-shifted, but in most stories his true identity is a mystery. ==Behavior== In most cases, the ōnyūdō is a malevolent figure that can cause people to fall ill simply by looking at them.
