Still, there's the bath

Via worldserpent's entry, a page of kirie, paper cut illustrations. Which cradle Catholic me will always think of as kyrie, but no matter.

Especially Yashagaike, the yasha in the pond, actually a dragon princess; also the name of the film with Tamasaburo Bando which of course exists nowhere. Demon Pond in English. Here is an interesting if catty account of the making, with pictures finally, and here is a retelling of the original story, with an English translation.
