Yofune-Nushi was an enormous Sea Serpent that preyed upon the people of Japan. Yofune-Nushi was appeased by by being offered a girl every 13th June. One girl named Tokoyo was left to be eaten by the creature. She had however, hidden a knife in her skirt. When the serpent came close, and opened its jaws to devour her, Tokoyo whipped out the knife and stabbed out its eyes. Yofune-Nushi flung its head back screaming in terror and collapsed to the floor. The serpent withered in agony and died of its wounds.
