The Japanese word, “yōkai” refers to a range of supernatural beings such as ghosts, demons, monsters, shapeshifters, tricksters, and other strange kinds of creatures. Yōkai also refers to peculiar entities (or presences), weird or unexplainable phenomena, and the visual depiction of these ideas. The book introduces readers to Japan’s relationship to yōkai: what they are, their associated tales, how people engaged with or interpreted yōkai in different contexts, and why they remain so popular in Japan. The contributors delve into popular culture themes to connect traditional folklore, folk art, and imagery to trends in Japan as well as in the United States.
