    "Scarecrows in a Japanese rice field. Scarecrows are called "kakashi" in Japanese. Scarecrows have enjoyed a long history in Japan. A scarecrow called "Kuebiko" is mentioned in Japan's oldest surviving book (the book's title is "Kojiki" and dates from the early 8th century). Kuebiko is a kami (deity) who never moves and yet watches always everything happening throughout the world. In Japanese mythology Kuebiko appears in the tale called "Ōkuninushi".

    Thanks, Joe Riley. Might need to forward this to my oldest daughter. She was an exchange student to Japan in her youth and we had several Japanese exchange students here. In our subdivision is a Japanese family. They hang out fish kites in celebration and do other things reflecting their homeland. They had two small splitrail fence type objects on their lawn since before we moved in. Square objects about 1 1/2 foot cubed. I wrote and asked my daughter many times over the years what they were as the subdivision is a place where we all wave to each other but seldom talk. I chastised her about being my go to for Japanese info and she could never tell me. (before internet) Years later, they took the small structures down. They were covering the exhaust vents from their septic field. They were--septic exhaust vent cozies! Inscrutable Japanese.:rolleyes:
