okurie

4

A raíz de los repetidos terremotos que azotan Japón desde hace décadas, existe una curiosa tradición japonesa llamada Okurie.

Más que una tradición es un proyecto. Consiste en decorar los edificios que van a ser demolidos para que en ese corto periodo de tiempo luzcan un look más “festivo”. Una de esas acciones fue organizada por el artista Yosuke Tan.

La gente pringó sus manos en pintura roja y dibujó lo que parecen flores de cerezo, pero que en realidad son manos “ensangrentadas”.

Te importa una mierda, pero ahí queda el dato curioso.

Okuri Inu -

A dog or wolf creature from Japanese folklore, the Okuri Inu haunts mountain roads and forest paths. It looks like an ordinary dog or wolf but they are much more dangerous than the mortal versions. The Okuri Inu has a special relationship with another creature called yosuzume, whose eerie bird song is a warning that an Okuri Inu is following you.

The Okuri Inu are carnivorous and humans are their favourite food. They find lone travelers walking the roads late at night and stalk them. They keep their distance but copy every footstep. If the traveler they are stalking trips or stumbles the Okuri Inu will pounce on them and rip them to shreds before devouring them. Being followed by the Okuri Inu can be both a blessing and a curse. They are so ferocious that their presence will frighten off any other harmful creatures and protect you, just don't trip. 

It is possible to save yourself from a Okuri Inu attack if you trip. You must pretend that you tripped intentionally  and this will trick the  Okuri Inu into thinking you just sat down for a rest. If you make it out of the mountain or forest safely while being followed by a Okuri Inu you should turn around and call out, “Thank you for seeing me off!” and after that it will never follow you again. When you get home you should wash your feet and leave out a bowl of food for the Okuri Inu to show your thanks for it watching over you.

☺ is choki okuri too obscure for facts? if so then gin tonic (did u do her yet?)

Choki!

1. If another DSRE opens, she’s my Go To Gal to send over.

2. She’s a very sweet girl, but has few friends because she is lowkey creepy af.

3. She eats snacks in the same rooms as the bodies. Hey, she washes her hands!

4. Choki believes very strongly in everyone’s right to a proper burial. Missing people assumed dead make her very upset.

5. She talks to those she’s working on a lot. Tells them how pretty they’re going to look. Tells them how much they were loved in life. Wishes them peace in the afterlife.

6. She’s very patient with people. When Choki deals with clients, it’s usually the worst times of their lives. She’ll always be there for people with a kind word and a reassurance that their loved one will be taken care of.

7. The sight of taxis calm her down. The bright yellow ones especially.

8. Yellow is probably her favorite color. It’s bright and fun! And it signifies a crime scene!

9. She was born in Sim nation and would quite like to go to Japan some day.

10. Noe and Prax are so gay, she’s glad they’re realizing this.

DEMON MURDER-WEASELS

THE OKURI-ITACHI IS A DEMONIC WEASEL. IF YOU’RE WALKING IN THE WOODS AND SEE A WEASEL FOLLOWING YOU, DON’T JUST IGNORE IT. THE FUCKER WILL DRAG YOU TO THE GROUND AND EAT YOU. IT’S REALLY FUCKING STRONG FOR A WEASEL, AND IT LOVES HUMAN FLESH.

ALSO DON’T RUN. IT’LL CATCH UP WITH YOU AND EAT YOU. IT REALLY FUCKING LOVES EATING PEOPLE.

THERE’S ONLY ONE THING THE OKURI-ITACHI LIKES TO EAT MORE THAN FLESH, AND THAT’S SHOES. THAT’S RIGHT. MOTHERFUCKING SHOES. IF YOU TAKE YOUR SHOES OFF AND THROW IT AT THE OKURI-ITACHI THEN YOU WON’T GET YOUR FUCKING FACE MANGLED, BECAUSE IT’LL BE SO BUSY EATING YOUR SHOES THAT YOU CAN FUCK OFF HOME SAFELY.
