Yokai Wonderland - More From Yumoto Koichi Collection: Supernatural Beings In Japanese Art
Yokai are a class of supernatural monsters in Japanese folklore. In the Edo period (1603-1868), many artists, such as Hokusai Katsushika or Kuniyoshi Utagawa, created works featuring yokai that were inspired by folklore or their own imaginations.
Yokai Wonderland contains many art works of Japanese yokai from the Edo period to today and includes not only paintings but also woodblock prints, scrolls, ceramics, kimonos, wooden sculptures, magazines, toys for children, such as board games, and more.
