The Hibagon or Hinagon is the Japanese equivalent to the North American Bigfoot or the Hyeti in the Himalayas. Sightings have been reported since the 1970's around Mount Hiba, Hiroshima Prefecture.

The Hibagon is said to be described as a black creature with white hands and large white feet and stands about 5 feet tall and has been said to resemble a gorilla. The Hibagon has a large nose, large deep glaring eyes and is covered with bristles. Theories to account for this cryptid range from a gorilla, a wild man, or a deserter from the Japanese chefs, to an individual ravaged by atomic radiation from the nuclear attack on Hiroshima.
