Notes

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.
