In collaboration with broadcasters NHK, the Mitsui Memorial Museum continues its annual summer exhibition series with an exploration of the history of the ghosts and demons of Japanese folklore: the yokai. Through an extensive collection of noh masks, handscrolls, ukiyo-e (woodblock prints) and more, the exhibition spans the history of yokai from the Middle Ages to today.

Following the often dark, sometimes humorous, imagery of the Japanese ghouls, this show includes a special yokai painting by Mizuki Shigeru, creator of the widely popular manga “GeGeGe no Kitaro”; July 6-Sept. 1.
