Kamikiri (かみきり, Hair cutter) is a yōkai friend of Kitarō's who lives at the Yōkai Apartments. He first appeared in the Shonen Sunday story Kamanari.

Kuro-Kamikiri is a subspecies of Kamikiri.


Kamikiri has a crow-like face and mane of hair that makes his head resemble a sunflower. He has scissor-like pincers for hands.


Like many of the supporting cast of the Sunday run, Kamikiri was essentially a glorified mob character.
In Phantom Train, he helps Medama-Oyaji capture the vampiric Kitarō and Nezumi-Otoko with a "numbing net" and pulls them onto the train.  In Kitarō Kunitori Monogatari, he worked with Neko-Musume and Kasa-Bake to chop down the vampire flower Raglesia.
