(as of [price_update_date] – Details)
Japan is populated by all kinds of spirits, according to the Shinto tradition, but none has aroused more interest than the Yokai, the monsters.
Originally found in legends and frightening stories, these beings, still today, continue to be protagonists in modern anime and manga.
These fascinating creatures are outcasts and misunderstood, but they hold extraordinary powers.
This book invites you to a crazy experiment: to get close to these monsters and make friends with them, as no one has ever tried before.
If you will be able to overcome fear and mistrust, the results will be incredible, because the Yokai ask only to be known and understood, and are ready to reward those who have treated them with kindness with many wondrous gifts.
Whether you are an expert in conjuring or simply a fan of Japan and manga, this book will give you new and extraordinary experiences.
No previous magical experience is necessary, just a good dose of courage and curiosity.
In this volume you will meet, among others:
the wandering flames Abura Gaeshi, you will exchange gifts with a Kappa and understand each other by gestures with the giant Yama Otoko.
You will have thrilling experiences with old Tenaga Baba and the beautiful Hashi Ime, the princess of the bridge. You will see with your own eyes little Amabie, the pandemic-fighting mermaid, and visit the strange tavern of a Tanuki.
As in any self-respecting grimoire, every monster is beautifully illustrated.
