The Japan Foundation Travelling Exhibition “Yokai Parade: Supernatural Monsters from Japan”

Start Date: 11/11/2023 - End Date: 3/12/2023 :::

Step into the other world of all things supernatural through Yokai Parade: Supernatural Monsters from Japan!

Organised by the Japan Foundation and curated by Yumoto Koichi, the Director Emeritus of the Yumoto Koichi Memorial JAPAN YOKAI MUSEUM (Miyoshi Mononoke Museum), the exhibition introduces Japan’s Yokai culture that has been depicted in picture scrolls and Nishiki-e (“brocade picture,” a type of Japanese multi-coloured woodblock print) since ancient times.

With transitions in media from picture scrolls to Nishiki-e, books, and toys, the exhibition presents how the image of Yokai changed from a subject of fear to a more charming and friendly presence and how it gradually became familiar to the masses. The collection also showcases the charm of Yokai culture that continues to live within people’s imagination until today.
