bookshelves: fantasy, historical-fiction
Read in October, 2010

I found this book after seeing its name in several places, and even watching the film (which is great, though only in four parts, and I don't think two of the stories in the movie were in the book...).

A cool collection of Japanese folk tales; some mysterious, some scary, and all on the farther side of magical.

Most of the stories were very short, but this doesn't hamper them as you don't need much to get to the point of a fairy tale.

I would recomend this to anyone intersted in Japanese culture or even to someone who wants to read a fairy tale to their children for a bedtime story.
