Shinto & Japanese Buddhist Art Reference

By Mark Schumacher– I first found this looking for information on kappa ( 河童 ), but I like the “BUDDHISM Deity Classification” he’s written.

KAPPA — River Imp or Sprite (Shinto)
Kappa also called Kawatarou 河太郎
Kawako 河伯 or Kawaranbe 河ランベ
Gatarou がたろう or Enkou 猿猴
One of many Japanese Suijin
