If you ever wondered what a Yokai is or if you want to learn more about them, The Book of Yokai offers you everything you need! Whether you are fond of Japanese Folklore or if you’d like to learn about Folklore in general, take your time and dive into this fascinating and weird world!

You can watch the video below and/or continue reading this post:

The Book of Yokai is divided into two parts: The Yokai World and Yokai Culture.

In the first part, the author explains what Yokai is and make a correlation between them and other creatures from Japan. Of course, you’ll find a lot of magic, strange phenomena and monsters here. He also explains how Yokai affect Japan economically and socially.

The second – and best – part is about the Yoaki themselves. The Codex contains many different Yokai and they are sorted by their habitat. There are Yokai from the wilds, from the water, from home, from villages and cities and more.
