Yokai don’t exist. Or maybe you just can’t see them?

Do Yokai Exist or don’t they? Over 800 Yokai have gathered from around the world here in Shodoshima’s Yokai Art Museum. By listening to this guide which introduces everything from the origin of the Yokai, or Japanese monsters, to modern day Yokai, you will be left with a completely different image of what Yokai are.

Yokai originated in the end of the Heian period, and are derived from the ancient Japanese concept of Animism.

But just what are Yokai?
Yokai are a source of fear, of comfort, of culture, of entertainment. Those kinds of discoveries lie waiting for you here.

Once you have experienced this Yokai adventure, it will feel as if you are a young child who has just experienced the big city life for the first time. The world you knew will look completely different.
