YOKAIĀ are supernatural creatures,spirits, and animals with magical powers in Japanese folklore whose mysterious existence has continued to completely horrify, enchant, and save humankind. In the Edo period, many Japanese artists gave yokai their shapes by taking hints from the folklore tales and mixingĀ that with their imagination.Ā  In this day and age, interest inĀ yokaiĀ has increased explosively worldwide through the spread of Japanese pop culture, and also, as humankind are faced with all kinds of crisis that seemĀ insolvable on their own.Ā

SHIGERU MIZUKIĀ (1922ā€“2015) wasĀ the father of Japanese manga, andĀ one of Japanā€™s most respected artists. A creative prodigy, he lost an arm in World War IIĀ but vigorously pursued the art of manga.Ā He introduced theĀ yokaiĀ genre to the world of manga with GeGeGe no Kitaro, his most famous character. HisĀ yokaiĀ works are a "bricolage" based on the historicalĀ yokaiĀ culture of Japan. A real-lifeĀ yokaiĀ hunter, Mizuki traveled to over sixty countries to engage in fieldwork based on spirit folklore.Ā In March, 2022, Ā aĀ retrospective commemorating the centennial of Shigeru Mizukiā€™s birth was heldĀ at a museum inĀ Angouleme, France.
