Road crab – Real Japan Monsters

River crabs are called sawagani in Japanese. This name comes from the words kawa (river) and kani (crab). Sawagani are a common sight within and around streams and rivers during the warm months of year. In wet weather these crabs may leave the water and move over land. Adult Japanese river crabs are typically either blue or red in color though juveniles may appear brown. Adult male crabs are easily distinguished with their one large pincher while females have a special tail-like section for carrying eggs and young crabs. Though abundant in summer Japanese river crabs usually hide themselves away in secure locations during winter to reemerge as soon as the weather begins to warm again.
