Yanari (house squeaker) are small onis that appear in houses at night, much more often in wooden noisy houses.

They pop out from under the floor, ceilings and wooden furniture when it’s late at night. They run around the house making rumble and spite while everyone is asleep, scaring the unfortunate inhabitants of the house. Sometimes they also break objects, although that is not their goal.

Yanari love their task and take it very seriously.
