KODAMA
Deep in the mountain forests of Japan, the souls of the trees themselves are animated as spirits called Kodama. 
These souls can wander outside their hosts, according to their woodlands and maintaining the balance of nature.

The Kodama are revered as gods of trees, and protectors of the forests. 
They bless the lands around their forest with vitality, and villagers who find a tree inhabited by a Kodama they honor it marking with a sacred cord known as shimenawa.
