It is said that man’s anxieties gave birth to yokai.
As the sun sets on the day, darkness spreads around us. The spaces in which we work and play and the roads we travel back and forth unthinkingly during the day, at nighttime turn into pitch-black space, as if defying the control of human beings. The sense that something is lurking in that darkness is palpable. In such places, Japanese people began to believe in presences that were beyond human understanding, causing creatures, called yokai, to be created in their minds.
