Book Description
Yokai Attack is a nightmare-inducing one-stop guide to Japan's traditional monsters and creepy-crawlies.

Yokai are ethereal sorts of beings, like ghosts, nearly always encountered at night; everyone has their own take on how they might look in real life and what sorts of specific characteristics and abilities they might have. This book is the result of long hours spent poring over data and descriptions from a variety of sources, including microfilms of eighteenth-century illustrations from the National Diet Library in Tokyo, in order to bring you detailed information on almost 50 of these amazing creatures for the first time in English.

Illustrations, created by the talented Tatsuya Morino, detail the potential appearance of each yokai. Alongside each illustration is a series of "data points," with each yokai's significant features at a glance--especially handy for any potential close encounters.

Yokai Attack will surely convince you that Japan's tradition of fascinating monsters is a long one--yet far from being history.
Together with Yurei Attack and Ninja Attack , Yokai Attack is the last guidebook to Japan you'll ever need.

This entertaining, informative guide to traditional Japanese monsters--who are the ancestors of many of the characters found in today's manga, anime and J-horror flicks--features original illustrations and an at-a-glance data sheet for each yokai.Kodansha International

The wonderful book is perfect for anyone interested in monsters, Japanese culture, or folktales (especially Japanese ones). I’m interested in all of those…so I like this book a lot!
