Gashadokuro is a giant skeleton from Japanese folklore. According to the Japanese urban legend, the large skeleton is made up of the bones of people who have died from starvation.
Gashadokuro wanders around the countryside at night looking for prey. It is almost 90 feet tall and grinds its teeth, making a “gachi gachi” sound. The giant skeleton towers so high above the ground and walks so quietly that he can be almost invisible. If you hear a ringing in your ears, it means Gashadokuro is near.
The Gashadokuro is created from the bones from people who have died of starvation. Because of the horrible way they died and the fact that their bodies were not properly buried, these people have a powerful grudge against the living. Their bones gather together to form a giant skeleton.
It is filled with a vicious anger and rage that can only be satisfied by drinking the blood of the living. If Gashadokuro sees you walking along the road at night, it will reach down with its bony fingers and snatch you off the ground. Then, it will bite your head off with its giant teeth and drink the blood that drains out of your decapitated body.
