In Ghostly Japan: Now Available!


This is an excellent compilation of folk tales and proverbs and miscellany related to Japan, written by the famous Lafcadio Hearn at the tale end of the 19th century. It has the value of being not only academically intriguing but interesting in the sense of the tales it compiles; the tradition of floating lamps out to sea for the deceased, the use of incense as a parlor game, and bizarre, macabre stories of ghosts, vengeful spirits, and superstitions of many types. I highly recommend this particular text for its fantastic content.
