    GeGeGe 100 Stories of Yokai

    Here come frightening sensations and super creeps – with certain folkloric sensibility and gentleness.

    The late Shigeki Mizuki is a worldly renowned manga artist, best known for his “GeGeGe no Kitaro” series about a ghost boy named Kitaro that fights “yokai”.

    Drawing inspiration from Mizuki’s work, this brand-new interactive show will be set in the Yokai world haunted by creepy creatures.

    Yokai – monsters, ghosts and eerie spirits alike – inhabits the world of Japanese folklore, nurtured by the country’s rich natural environment, with forests, fields, rivers and mountains.

    Malicious and fearful, they haunt humans. But some helplessly mournful or outrageously out of shape, they can also be pitiful, humorous and lovable.
