One of the “Iki legends” is that, many many years ago, there was an ogre… or barbarian… or demon.. (or foreigner!) that was killing a bunch of Iki people and making them miserable in general. Luckily, a king appeared and destroyed the dirty ogre! HUZZAH! And somehow this has turned into a famous Iki tale and pictures and statues of it is everywhere.
This is in downtown Gounoura, about a five minute drive from my house.
