Yokai come in infinite shapes and sizes; from tengu mountain goblins and kappa water spirits to shape-shifting foxes and murderous apparitions. Japanese folklorist and UC Davis professor Michael Dylan Foster recounts his own spine tingling encounter with a yokai and runs down their delightful and terrifying origins and why they’re more relevant today than ever before.
Check out Michael’s published books about the Yokai: The Book of Yokai and Pandemonium and Parade
