Yōkai is the broad term for the various spirits, ghosts and fantastical beings that populate the legends, folktales and ghost stories of Japan. The word is made from two kanji: 妖 (yō) - meaning attractive, bewitching, calamity, and 怪 (kai) meaning mystery, wonder. The piece is an attempt to capture the spirit of this beguiling word, for which there is no direct English translation.
