Ōkubi (大首 Ōkubi, lit. giant severed head) is a yōkai that appears in the 1971, 1985 and the 1996 anime version of "GeGeGe no Kitarō." He is accompanied by Hone-Onna in a plan to sacrifice canned souls into Mt. Fuji's volcanic core for an eruption.
Ōkubi was originally a human from the Jōmon period.
The Ōkubi of legend is also known as "Odori-kubi". Ōkubi is also a portent of impending disasters like volcanic eruptions, typhoons and such.
