Akamata (アカマタ) is a powerful yōkai that lives on Baruru Island. He has an intense hatred for the many men that appear on the island in the hopes of profiting from the water of life, and longs to overpower them for good. He appears in the film Gegege no Kitarō: Daikaijū and was voiced by Tohru Furuya. In the 5th "Gegege no Kitaro" anime, he is actually a friend of Kitaro.
