cryptids-of-the-world:

The Gashadokuro is a giant 15 foot tall skeleton Yokai found in Japan. The Gashadokuro is said to be a spirit of a dead human who’s body is made up of collected bones from people who died of war or hunger and were never buried. The Gashadokuro hunts people who are alone on dark nights and bites the heads off of it’s victims and drinks their blood like a soda. You can tell when a Gashadokuro is near because you’ll hear a ringing in your ears however there is little you can do as they are indestructible and they can  only be warded off by Shinto charms.
