The Kappa is a water demon found in Japanese folklore. They are often depicted as having a plate-like crown on top of their heads and scaly-skinned with a turtle-like carapace on their backs.
PLEASE NOTE: The crown on this hat features a very quick decrease, so quickly that staying in the pattern creates almost a flat appearing crown. This is in direct relation to the name of the hat!
