Kurokami sama



What is Kurokami Sama?
It is the name of a ritual as well as of a god.*1
This ritual can be done when you have received unfair treatment, such as bullying and power harrassment*2, from others. 

How to do it
1. Pull out a strand of your hair.
2. Holding the strand of your hair in your hand, intone the name of the person you want to get revenge on and what deeds this person has done to you. And say, "May my wrongs be avenged."
3. Go up to a high place like the top of a building, and say "Kurokami sama, please avenge my wrongs," and let go of the strand of the hair.

Make sure you tell no one about the ritual 
There was once a girl called K who was being bullied at school. As soon as she performed the ritual, those who were bullying her met with misfortunes one by one; some had their families broken up, some fell victims to incurable disease, and others suffered severe mental breakdown. The bullying to her stopped, but one day K came across another bullying done to another girl, and she taught the girl about Kurokami sama ritual. Right after that, the fortunes of K's bullies gradually began to rise, and instead K's fortune quickly declined. K eventually disappeared. No one knows where she is now.

When is Kurokami sama active?
It is said that Kurokami sama begins to be active around two after midnight to fulfil the wish of those who seek the god's help. Kurokami sama appears in the form of "something that is covered competely by hair." If a "good person" happens to encounter Kurokami sama, it will bring luck to the person, but if a "bad person" encounters  Kurokami sama, it will bring misfortune to the person. There has been sporadic reports of sightings of Kurokami sama in Kanto region. *3

  4. Another great ritual. I liked the fact that beside the ritual, we get a story of K and what happens if you accidentally meet Kurokami.

  7. Aside from receiving instructions for the ritual from "user" to "user", how do some users know how to do the ritual?

    If Kurokami-san teaches it, what are the conditions to make her appear and offer services to you? By being bullied?

  8. SAYA NO!!! Why did you tell us about this it said not to?!

    Or does it mean not to tell if you did it?

  9. First and foremost, I just have to say this - that picture is creepy and I adore it, it just feels so ominous. Wonderful choice for this post!

    That said, I do always love the ritual posts, this is no exception. I must say I like the wordplay there with "Kami"! It makes me wonder, is this Kurokami written with the kanji for god or the one for hair?
    Still, thankfully I'm not being harassed in any way to have use for this ritual! But I know it is terrible and can understand why people in those situations could do it :/.

    Thanks a lot for this wonderful post! Take care and stay safe

    1. Oh yes, kami can also mean a god. You are quite right. So there is a wordplay there in the name.

      Thank you very much, Gabriel, I may not hear from you again, but take care dear.

  10. It’s not fair that the victim trying to help another victim had the ritual undone :/

    1. Just remember that a curse is a two-edged sword!

  12. Wow, this is very interesting. I also wonder what would happen if someone who is not deserving of the help asked for it (?) Thank you for sharing these stories with us, Saya!

    1. Yes I wonder about that too, but I'm not willing to try it and then see what happens! XD

  13. ahhh rituals are always a classic! i feel sorry that K was only trying to help another bullied girl and got punished for it... but the punishment does seem pretty harsh. i guess to keep the ritual from being exploited..? a simple, but effective story.

    ah! saya, i hope you're gonna be okay!! we all love you!

    seriously though, i always enjoy this blog, it's one of my favorite horror sites. thanks for the hard work, and have a nice holiday and new year!

  18. Hello Saya, I’m a long time reader and a first time commenter. I had a question for you, I tried posting this before but it didn’t show up on the thread. Have you ever heard of a book called Akuma No Gishiki? Apparently The White Kimono Ritual originates from it according to a Japanese woman I messaged, and she said the ritual posted online is missing a step. Have you ever heard of/seen this book before? I tried finding it but have had no success.

    1. Hi Mark! All comments need to be checked by me first so that's why yoru comment didn't appear immediately.

      No dear, unfortunately, I have never heard of the book before.
      Perhaps you can ask her to send you the picture of the cover of the book? My google search didn't come up with anything.

    1. Hi rupice dear. I think you commented before, a long time ago?
      If so I'm glad to be conversing with you again.

      You are very kind hearted, and I appreciate every word you wrote. I'm fine. I'm just not a very organized person, so I can't seem to handle many tasks all at once XD
      But I will do my best to keep this blog updated this year.

      Take care, and if there is anything I can help you with, ask me too! :D
