Seesaa


This legendary beast is Seesaa.
You can find these every where in Okinawa, sometimes on the house rooftops. 

It’s is a charm against evil spirits.

A lot of times they are decorated two together, the one whose mouth is open is male. 

It was interesting that even the partitions of construction sites were decorated with Seesaa. 

Seesaa in this photo is the one in agricultural cafe Shiki no aya.
