    Tokyo City View (Roppongi Hills)

     

     

    This show at Tokyo City View at Roppongi Hills celebrates the centenary of the birth of a great manga artist, Shigeru Mizuki** (1912-2015).

    *The official English title, not our translation.

    **Throughout this article, we use “Shigeru Mizuki”, the internationally known order of the artist’s pen name. Mizuki is the family name equivalent.

     


    The night of Shigeru Mizuki’s yokai roaming at large!

    Hyakkiyako” or “hyakki yagyo” means that innumerous goblins, ghosts and ghouls alike roam at large under the veil of darkness and also refers to such a night.

    Here the use of the expression is in the literal sense, not figurative.

    The show features more than 100 yokai drawn by Shigeru Mizuki to trace the career of the artist and his creation of yokai.

    Without knowledge of Japanese, it is not possible to understand the depth of the curation and the content, as absolutely no translation is provided, alas.

    But the visitors can embrace the ambiance and appreciate a number of wonderful yokai drawn by Mizuki, while partaking gorgeous views of Tokyo from 250 meters high above the sea level.
