[Sen mainpage] Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi  

Characters: Gods and Spirits

These are the customers of Aburaya, the bathhouse.


Gods who came to ABURAYA in a group by boat. They wear strange masks and Sokutai (Japanese traditional clothes for nobles), but their bodies are like shadows.
(*Kasuga is the name of a famous Shinto Shrine in Japan. There is a traditional ritual dance called "Ama" at Kasuga Shrine, in which dancers wear paper masks called "Zoumen." The mask looks like the one Kasuga-Sama is wearing. )
Okusare-Sama (Kussare = Rotten)

The first customer of Chihiro at ABURAYA. Its body is covered with sludge, and stinks very much.
Oshira-Sama (Shira = White)

A god of Daikon radish.
Kawa no Kami (River God) Voice: HAYASHI Koba

One of Chihiro’s customers. As a token of her service, it gives Chihiro a Nigadango (bitter dumpling), which seems to be a medicine. When the god feels good, it flies in the air.
Ootori-Sama (Tori = Bird)

Gods of Birds. Love to bathe.
Ushioni (Cow Goblins)
Gods who have antlers. Customers of ABURAYA. The Kanji on their Yukata (Japanese bathrobe) is "Abura (Oil)" of ABURAYA.
