An abumi-guchi (ç‹¿Ú, abumi-guchi? lit. "stirrup mouth") is a strange, furry y¨­kai, or Japanese monster, that is illustrated in Sekien Toriyama's Gazu Hyakki Tsurezure Bukuro. It is a type of tsukumogami formed from a stirrup, usually one that once belonged to a fallen soldier. It is said that the abumi-guchi will wait where it lies for the fallen solider to return.</P
