Akateko, meaning "red child's hand" is an unusual yokai found in Japanese Honey Locust Trees. It takes the form of a small red disembodied hand, suspended by some sort of string.
|First Sighting||Edo period|
|Last Sighting||No modern sightings|
|Habitat||Honey Locust Trees|
Possible ExplainationsIt is possible that the Akateko is an undiscovered species of red spider. It would explain why the creature hung from trees as spiders hang from spider silk.
