Nanahiro Gaeru

Nanahiro Gaeru is a Japanese Yokai monster folklore in Tochigi Prefecture.

A frog which counts like "One hiro, Two hiro..." then at the seventh hiro, it screams out loud. *Hiro is a old-fashioned measurement.
Hundreds of years ago, there was a war at local castle and a daughter of the leader of the castle tried to run away over a moat. When she was counting the width of the moat, at the seventh hiro, she was killed by an allow through her body. The daughter turned into a frog and still counting the depth of the moat.
