Azuki Hakari2013 by Matthew Meyer

小豆はかり

A possible relative of azuki arai, azuki hakari, or “the bean counter,” is a poltergeist found in some homes and temples. Known only by the sounds it makes, it is said to dwell in attics or gardens, and is most active at night. Azuki hakari have never been seen directly – only heard. Though similar in name and habit to its azuki-related cousins, azukihakari has traits distinct enough to classify it as a separate yokai.
