Yokai: Demons, Folklore Creatures and GeGeGe no Kitaro

Forget Halloween: mid-summer is the traditional season for ghosts and demons in Japan. This timely exhibition at the Mitsui Memorial Museum lures unwitting visitors into the world of Japanese yokai, with an array of spooky paintings, masks and figurines, a few of them dating back as far as the Kamakura period. Bringing things all the way up to the present, the show also features 25 original illustrations by Shigeru Mizuki, the horror-loving manga artist of GeGeGe no Kitaro fame.
