Japanese Ghost Stories

“Then again she wept aloud,– so bitterly that the voice of her crying pierced into the marrow of the listener’s bones; – and she sobbed out the words of this poem:– Hi kurureba Sasoeshi mono wo – Akanuma no Makomo no kure no Hitori-ne zo uki! (“At the coming of twilight I invited him to return with me –! Now to sleep alone in the shadow of the rushes of Akanuma – ah! what misery unspeakable!”)” - Lafcadio Hearn, Kwaidan

Japanese for ‘ghost stories’, Kwaidan is a collection of supernatural occurrences as told by the Japanese oral historians. Witness horror straight from the Masters of Horror and be prepared to meet fantastic characters like spirits, goblins and insects that mimic human behavior.
