Zashiki Warashi (Little Boy in the Room: zashiki means Japanese room and warashi means a little boy.)
Zashiki Warashi lives in the homes of the well-off and because of this the household prospers. It seems that some people can see him when they are children, but when they grow up they lose this ability. This is because adults have lost the innocence of youth. However, sometimes, people say that they have seen the Zashiki Warashi leaving a certain house and after a while that household is visited by ill fortune which may even result in death.
