Since time immemorial, Japan has been inhabited by supernatural creatures, spirits, monsters and demons…Here's your chance to meet them up close and personal!<br /><br />Strange Japanese Yokai assembles an extraordinary collection of mysterious creatures in every possible shape and size, each with their own unique back story. Some are well-known, others obscure. The one thing they share in common is that they are creepy and weird!<br /><br />The 122 different Yokai described in this book include:<br /><br />

  • The Kappa: A dangerous creature who lives in lakes and rivers and attacks passers-by
  • The Nurarihyon: A mysterious Yokai with a huge head who steals food, tobacco and alcohol
  • The Yadokai: A mischievous former monk who wanders at night vandalizing and being a pest
  • The Ohaguru:A scary Yokai with black teeth who looks like a beautiful woman from afar until she gets closer, smiles, and reveals herself
  • And over 100 more!
<br />Yokai expert Kenji Murakami identifies each Yokai, explains the history, where they commonly appear, and their strange powers. The book is illustrated with hundreds of full-color drawings showcasing the fascinating features of these strange creatures. Every monster here, no matter how disgusting, is part of the rich cultural legacy of Japan.<br /><br />*Recommended for readers ages 14 & up*
