Unlike Ouija, Kokkuri-san isn’t dangerous. Who you summon is actually a Japanese god in the form of a fox, called Kokkuri. San means you respect whoever you’re addressing, so you add it to the name.
1. Prepare a pen, a coin and a piece of paper.
2. If you’re not English, make the game in your own language. At the top middle of the paper, draw a torii (Google it if you don’t know what it looks like). On the left hand side of the torii, write “yes” and on the right hand side write “no”. Write one or two rows of numbers from 0-9 and below them write the alphabet of your language. Kokkuri told me he knows all languages perfectly, so you may play the game in whatever language you want. Fromm y experience, it works best if all players share the same mother-tongue which should be the language the paper is written in.
3. Place your coin (best choice is a Yen coin, but cents (89% copper, 5% aluminium, 5% zinc, and 1% tin) work wonderfully, too) on the torii. You and at least one other person must place one index finger on the coin.
4. Some people advise you to open a door or window so that Kokkuri can enter. The game works best outside.
5. Traditionally you should say: “Kokkuri-san, Kokkuri-san, please come.” But from personal experience I know that asking “Kokkuri-san, Kokkuri-san, are you there?” works too. In both instances, the coin should slide to “yes”. Now you may begin.
6. Ask your questions like this: “Kokkuri-san, Kokkuri-san, *your question*?”
7. Kokkuri-san is easily angered, so you must obey all the rules and apologise for braking any. You should be very respectful at all times.
Kokkuri-san: the safe Ouija
1. Never play alone. Kokkuri told me that this game is connected with Ouija, so if you play alone you could end up being possessed.
2. It is advisable not to take your finger off the coin while playing. I understand that if Kokkuri moves the coin really fast, which can happen, your finger can slip away. If this does happen, apologise to Kokkuri. If you want to take your finger off intentionally, you should ask Kokkuri if you can do so.
3. Kokkuri is a jokester. He almost had me buying algae for an angry ghost once. If the answer he gives you is strange, you should ask if he’s joking. He jokes most of the time.
4. When you have asked all your questions, say: ‘’Kokkuri-san, Kokkuri-san, please leave.’’ If the coin moves to yes and then to the torii, you may remove your fingers from it and pack up the game.
5. Some websites tell you to destroy the paper and use the coin when you’re done. I have asked Kokkuri if this is necessary, and he said no, but just to be on the safe side, you should ask him yourself.
6. You may find lots of stories across the internet about Kokkuri hurting people. I asked him if any were true and he said no. He is very kind and gentle and cheerful. The only harm that can come from you in this game is if you play alone.
7. Kokkuri-san is not in any way dangerous if played properly. You will find all necessary instructions above. I am not responsible for any harm that comes to anyone who does not obey the rules I have written down.
