Ghostly spirits and summer go hand in hand in Japan, and there are few things more frightening than the annual August exhibition of hanging scrolls at Zenshoan Temple in Tokyo's Yanaka district.

This year, however, the scrolls will be displayed together at a different location for the first time, forming the basis of a bone-chilling exhibition titled "Urameshiya: Art of the Ghost" at The University Art Museum in Ueno.

Located a short walk from Yanaka's cemetery, Zenshoan Temple was built at the beginning of the Meiji Period (1868-1912) in honor of those who lost their lives during the Meiji Revolution.
