19th-century ghost scrolls. [Via]
  • These always leave me speechless. Wish I could see them in person!! There used to be an online gallery of the temple's collection, but appears to be dead now (haunted, perhaps?). I'm always reminded of one of my all-time favorite movies, Ugetsu Monogatari (雨月物語). Thanks for posting!!
  • Nice post...thanks....
  • Gorgeous. And the ghost total should even satisfy Ralph. I've always thought that Japanese culture seems to find the scariest things to haunt with.
  • Somehow more benevolent and nuanced than the usual specters. Thanks, homunculus.
  • Benevolent? Viciously malevolent, I would say! *shudders*
