The Baku are supernatural creatures that are a popular part of Japanese folklore
Said to watch over humans and act as a guardian spirit . They feed on the dreams of humans – specifically nightmares . Evil spirits and yokai fear baku and flee from them, avoiding areas inhabited by them.Which is why this creature is also often featured in architecture, to ward off any evil from entering. Health and good luck follow a Baku wherever it goes. Which makes them an incredible important part of Japanese culture, and the representation of luck even today.
Over the years, specifically in anime and pop culture the depiction of the Baku has evolved and changed into more abstract concepts but traditionally The Baku is made up of many different animal parts, an elephants trunk, rhinoceros eyes, an ox tail and tiger legs all with different representations that protect it against pestilence and evil.
The Japanese word Baku also refers to the tapir. The animal was named after its uncanny resemblance to the early 17th century drawings found. Ensure that you show the Baku the respect it deserves, and only call on it when your worst nightmares arrive and it will protect you and give you a good nights rest.
