Legend has it that “every year the yokai Nurarihyon, will lead all of the yōkai through the streets of Japan during summer nights.” Anyone who comes across the procession would perish or be spirited away by the youkai, unless protected by handwritten scrolls by anti-yokai onmyoji spellcasters. It is said that only an onmyoji clan head is strong enough to pass Nurarihyon’s Hyakki Yagyo unharmed.[3]

According to the account in the Shūgaishō (拾芥抄), a medieval Japanese encyclopedia, the only way to be kept safe from the night parade if it were to come by your house is to stay inside on the specific nights associated with the Chinese zodiac or to chant the magic spell.
