Product Information

Little Amabie sama, a Japanese yokai emerges from the sea to prophesy. A yokai is a family of mythological creatures from the Edo period in Japan. Folklore tells that the Amabie appeared off the shore in the Higo Province; to share news about the upcoming harvest. During that visit the town’s official was told “if disease spreads, draw a picture of me and show the picture of me to those who fall ill and they will be cured”. A woodblock print of Amabie appeared in a local newspaper in 1846. The image spread quickly through Japan in hopes to ward off plague.

Many are turning to Amabie with new hope. Images of the 3 finned mercreature with long hair and a beak are appearing globally with hopes to ward of sickness. As communities re-open wear Amabie – sama as a symbol of good luck and good health for you AND those who see you.

The pendant is handcast lead free pewter and measures 1". It comes complete with a 24" chain. 

Available in a pin and a necklace.
