commentary: ろくろ首 (rokurokubi [a type of supernatural monster])

Hiroi Michiaki: Mmm this is Rokuro kubi.

Mrs. Hiroi: Yeah.

Hiroi: This is… umm… In the past, there was a person with a long neck, and this is actually a kind of yokai (demon). He plays this shamisen here and slowly slowly slowly slowly his neck stretches out. And he licks at the oil of evening lamps.
