Thematic Exhibition Ghosts, Ghouls, and Goblins:
Strange and Fantastical Figures in Japanese Art

In the afterlife, at night after everyone is asleep, beyond the darkest darkness, in places you usually don’t enter, within the minds of others … The terror that lurks in these invisible territories has always been manifest in the form of strange creatures, commonly called yūrei (ghosts), oni (ghouls), and yōkai (goblins). People have long been frightened hearing tales of their exploits and have also been entertained seeing their unique figures depicted in pictures.
This exhibition presents the world of uncanny creatures such as ghosts, ghouls, and goblins from the unnatural phenomena written about in classical literature.
