The demons have played an important role in Japanese folklore. In the past without electricity or Internet, nights were dark and frightening, especially in the ancient cities.
Oni demons help to explain many natural phenomenon.
They are part of many rituals and rites.
Many Oni hang around placed of departure and divide, like city gates, rivers and bridges, crossroads or mountain passes.

The demons of the Buddhist hell are a special group, and are quite fearful in the imagination of humans.

akki 悪鬼 a bad demon
Kume no Sennin 久米の仙人 - Nara
The Immortal Kume used to fly around in the sky, riding on clouds. Once he saw a beautiful woman doing the washing at a river and got quite exited and involved with her.
This was the reason why he lost his 神通力 supernatural powers.
Part of this 通 power stayed deep in the mountain and became akki 悪鬼 a bad demon, who was called 通鬼 Tsuki, Tsu-Oni. This wicked demon went to the village and bewitched boys, even making them ill and mentally confused.
He lived at the times of emperor 欽明天皇 Kinmei Tenno.
