Japanese UMA #1

There are a lot of legends of UMA or unidentified mysterious animal in the world such as Chupacabra, Bigfoot and Nessie. Of course, there are a lot of legends relating to UMA in Japan, too. So I want to introduce them. One of them is TSUCHINOKO.
TSUCHINOKO is a creature like a snake. But it is flatter and wider than a snake- the length is about 30 – 50 cm. It is said that TSUCHINOKO can jump using its whole body as a spring.

There are many places that they were seen across the country. One of the most famous spots is HIGASHI-SHIRAKAWA village in GIFU prefecture. There is a museum regarding TSUCHINOKO in the village.
