Translated literally as “ghost whale”, the Bakekujira are animated whale skeletons.that swim near the ocean’s surface, rising as they did in life when they would have had to breathe. Often, a host of eerie birds and strange fish accompany them. Bakekujira appear on rainy nights near coastal whaling villages.
