Behind the Scenes

  • Nurarihyon is, like all Kakuranger Yokai, based on a creature from Japanese mythology, in this case, he is based on Nurarihyon, a creature usually depicted as an old man with a gourd-shaped head and wearing a kesa sometimes said to be leader of the yōkai, although he bears little resemblance to the original stories.
