A kindly creature from Japanese mythology that lives on the bottom of the sea. The shojos have red hair and a pink or red skin and are naked but for a skirt of green seaweed. They brew a medicinal white wine called shiroi sake and other medicines. If a good persons drinks the sake, it will taste delicious. If a wicked person drink it, the sake will taste like poison and kill him, unless he repents at once.
