An interesting read looking at a Japan that no longer exists. I thought the tales were more interesting than Hearn's discussions of Japanese spirituality and his division of the Japanese race from the rest of humanity, which didn't sit right. It's interesting to think what Hearn would think to look at the changes that have occurred in Japan since he wrote the book, with its skyscrapers and consumer culture.
