Spidery tales

This week I get back to doing yōkai related entries.

This time I have an entry for tsuchigumo (earth spider) 土蜘蛛

Some time ago I obtained a copy of Yōkai: Dictionnaire des Monstres Japonais, a two volume French translation of Mizuki Shigeru's useful book on yōkai. (Thanks Ono-san for referring me to this translation) Now my skill with French is rusty, having moved to the US when I was 4 and having only studied the language occasionally in school. However I am able to put the book to use and hope continue adding yōkai related entries for the next several months as I have about 35 possible entries lined up.
