In Japanese folklore all things have a spirit (or a kami residing within them), including such items as household tools and objects. In literature and illustrated books there are examples of yōkai (a supernatural monster or spirit/妖怪) which have been transformed from everyday items into mischievous characters once they reach 100 years in age. But in addition, any object which has a life in your home might develop a personality of its own based on its interactions with humans and the other tools around it.

This kettle has found herself in constant use during lockdown and is starting to feel the pressure - remember to thank her!
