GeGeGe no Kitarō Wiki

Tenjō-Sagari (天井下がり Tenjō-Sagari, lit. Ceiling Hanger) is a yōkai that inhabits attics and hangs from ceilings.



Tenjō-Sagari usually loves to appear from ceilings of dark rooms to scare humans. Other than this, it generally causes little to no harm. Even if humans mistakenly startle it or try to capture it, it will create a large hole in the ceiling and withdraw.
