Rokurokubi (轆轤首 rokurokubi) are yōkai found in Japanese folklore. They look like normal human beings by day, but at night they gain the ability to stretch their necks to great lengths. In their daytime human forms, rokurokubi often live undetected and may even take mortal spouses. A few, it is said, are not even aware of their true nature and consider themselves normal humans. This last group stretch their necks out while asleep in an involuntary action; upon waking up in the morning, they find they have weird dreams regarding seeing their surroundings in unnatural angles. According to some tales, rokurokubi were once normal human beings but were transformed by karma for breaking various precepts of Buddhism.
