Tōfu-Kozō is a small yokai who resembles a human child with short black hair and eyes, as well as constantly sticking his out. He wears a little boys’ kimonos and wide-brimmed straw hats, which is the typical outfit of a tōfu-selling young boy of the Edo period. He is virtually always seen carrying a tray of tofu.


Tōfu-kozō is often portrayed as amicable and timid. For the most part, he will shy away from any confrontation, sticking to the sidelines.
