Legend

The Wikipedia:Kinoko is a type of Yama-Warawa hence is a type of kappa from Kinki region. They appear as children from two to four years of age and wear clothes that are made of leaves or are blue. It's said that when a human sees one, they look like a shadow, making it hard to tell if one actually there or not.

They usually play together as a group. It is said that woodcutters and other people who work in the mountains catch sight of them from time to time and so they are not an unusual sight to them. However, it is said that if one is not cautious and gets caught unprepared, one could be pranked such as by having one's bentō stolen, so when something like that ever happens, one should use a stick to shoo them away.
