Behind the scenes
First appearance

Quidditch Through the Ages

The Toyohashi Tengu are a Quidditch team based in Toyohashi, Japan. They are the most successful Japanese team, and narrowly missed a win in 1994 against the Gorodok Gargoyles. Their practice of burning their broomsticks after a defeat was frowned upon by the International Confederation of Wizards' Quidditch Committee as a waste of good wood.

Behind the scenes

  • Tengu are mythical Japanese creatures, traditionally portrayed as having a humanoid shape, but the wings and beak of a bird of prey.
  • Toyohashi is a city located in Aichi Prefecture, Japan.

Etymology

  • "Tengu" (天狗) means "heavenly dog", and can be broken into two characters:
    • 天, "ten" or "ama" means "heaven".
    • 狗, "ku" (an alternate reading of "gu"), "kō", or "inu" means "dog".
