Namahage Monster

The project involves exploring one of the Asian monsters. While the project is not
entirely meant to focus on these monsters, it seeks to show a correlation between the use of the
legendary monsters, with an emphasis on the Namahage monster and how this relation continue
to shape even the modern society. The primary inclination of the project is to try and analyze
whether there is any implication on the people’s beliefs about monsters and their modern
behavior. In short, are monsters only legendary or are their effects and relevance still applicable
in the current society? The thesis of the project is that there is still relevance of the belief of
monsters and their ramifications on the modern society.
The motivation of the project arises from one of the visits that I made to Japan for a
family vacation during the New Year celebrations. There was a ritual that was taking place on
the eve of the New Year which was an honor of the monster Namahage. It became an interesting
point on why people would still be paying homage to a nonexistent monster. The matter became
more interesting when it became apparent that the ritual is one that transcends age and most
people have lived observing it as long as they can remember. The inclination is that this
phenomenon made me curious to try and come up with a perspective on how the Namahage
monster is seen and observed by the Japanese population.
Perhaps it is time to describe the Namahage monster. The monster is described as a
Japanese ogre that is believed to have been most feared and revered in the ancient times. It is
believed that the Namahage used to go round the ancient populations and ask for bribes, in the
form of food plus a young woman as a bonus. The people who would not be able to afford the
bribes of the monster, they would be terrorized by it (Bane, 2016). The legend is unclear on
