A Japanese spirit that takes the form of a baby that has been left to die in the woods. It cries out loud which lures curious and compassionate people deep into the woods. There the people see a baby left to die and decided to take care of it. When they come closer they see that the baby has the face of an old man. When the person picks up the baby, it suddenly becomes extremely heavy and large. Eventually it grows so heavy and large it crushes its apparent savior.
