is a type of mountain-dwelling yōkai
in Japanese folklore
that holds the power to read human thoughts
. The creature is said to approach travellers on mountain paths in hominid
form and speak their thoughts aloud. The way to counter a satori is to empty one's mind, in which case the creature will grow bored and leave, run in fear, or even die.
The most famous satori, , lives at the base of Mount Fuji.
