Kao Nashi / No Face In the old days my neighbor told me that there would sometimes be a single silkworm amongst ten thousand that did not have the markings on it's forehead. Children would look for these rare kaonashi oddities. This year for some Mendelic reason, half have faces (actually markings on their upper backs) and half are white with no markings at all. In the Studio Ghibli masterpiece, Sen to Chihoro/Spirited Away, one of these characters showed up at a hot spring for the myriad of Japanese Gods.
