Tengu are a class of supernatural creatures found in Japanese folklore, art,
theater and literature. They are one of the better known spirits and are
sometimes worshipped as gods. Although they take their name from a
dog-like Chinese demon (Tiangou), the tengu were originally thought to
take the forms of birds of prey, and they are traditionally depicted with both
human and avian characteristics. The earliest Tengu were pictured with
beaks, but this feature has often been humanized as an unnaturally long
nose, which today is practically the tengu's defining characteristic in the
popular imagination.
