A miscellany of ghost stories, odd tales, and curious observations by a master storyteller who penetrated Japan more deeply than any other Westerner. Lafcadio Hearn captures the folk spirit and quaint “exoticism” of a land thought at the time to be both mysterious and sinister.

Lafcadio Hearn (1850–1904) gained Japanese citizenship and wrote many books about Japan for Western readers.
