Sunekosuri run up behind people walking on dark, rainy nights. They rub against their shins, weave in and out of their legs, nuzzle against the knees, and otherwise make it difficult to walk. They do not intentionally cause any harm to humans, although occasionally their rubbing is strong enough to make a person stumble or even knock them down.


Sunekosuri are small, mischievous spirits from Okayama Prefecture. They are most often described as dog-like in appearance, though they are also occasionally said to resemble cats.
