Japan's answer to the legendary cryptid was first sighted during a mountain drive one night 50 years ago.
Although encounters with large bipedal hominids are mostly associated with North America and the Himalayas, stories of such creatures have been reported for years in countries all over the world including Russia, China and even Japan where it is known locally as Hibagon.

The story began on July 20th, 1970, when a man driving a pick-up truck near Saijo, Hiroshima Prefecture, came across what appeared to be a large ape-like creature on the mountainside.

When word of his sighting to out, other locals came forward to share their own stories.

Described as around 1.6 meters tall, gorilla-like and with a face like an inverted triangle, the beast, which became known as Hibagon, soon became a national phenomenon.

Even today, the area continues to be associated with the legend of the creature.

It still remains unclear what, if anything, people had seen that day, with some having come to regard Hibagon as a symbol of disapproval for the large construction projects happening in the region.

Others, meanwhile, believe that it may have been a gorilla that escaped from a nearby zoo.

"We were scared of Hibagon, but it was all in good fun," said Seiko Fujikawa, who had been an elementary school pupil at the time of the sightings.

"It's a sweet memory, indeed."

The tales of the Shennongjia yeren, or wildman, has been widely spread in China over four decades and its record can be found in ancient poetry books, dating back thousands of years.

The ‘Bigfoot’ has been described as an ape-like creature, with facial features that resemble a human. This mysterious figure is covered from head to toe with long brownish hair and has been sighted over 400 times during the last four decades in Shennongjia and the surrounding areas.
