Many of the ghost stories of Japan came to the fore during the Edo period with its famous woodblocks of ukiyo-e, the floating world. This new collection of Japanese ghost stories brings together fantastic tales of vengeful spirits, man-eating demons, mountain-dwelling ogres, woodland ghosts and the phantoms of abandoned children, with stories such as Yuki-Onna, Hoichi the Earless, The Ghost of O-Kiku from The Bancho Sarayashiki, O'Iwa's Punishment from Yotsuya Kwaidan, The Peony Lantern and The Ogre of Rashomon. Japan has a long and ancient custom of sharing stories of the supernatural, brought to fashionable prominence in the Kaidan literature of the Edo period, now presented here for the modern reader. AUTHOR: A native of Tokyo, Japan, Hiroko Yoda (Introduction) is a translator, writer, folklorist and president of AltJapan Co., Ltd., which specializes in bringing Japanese entertainment to the wider world. She is the co-author of the popular trilogy Yokai Attack! The Japanese Monster Survival Guide, Ninja Attack! True Tales of Assassins, Samurai, and Outlaws, and Yurei Attack! The Japanese Ghost Survival Guide (Tuttle, 2011). She is also the author of the upcoming Eight Million Ways to Happiness (Tiny Reparations, 2025). 10 illustrations
