The Akaname is a Japanese yōkai that licks off the filth and grime that collects in old bathhouses. It is a rather harmless creature, choosing quiet nights to sneak around when everyone is asleep. However, its appearance can be quite alarming: the Akaname has a red face, clawed feet, short with a cropped head, and a long reptilian tongue.
