I didn't like these stories as much as the ones in Japanese Gothic Tales, for the simple reason that they were more difficult to understand. Kyoka's focus on his own private imagery makes his stories difficult to get through at times. Inouye's explanations at the end help, but the stories were still pretty frustrating at points. Still, the imagery is beautiful, and Kyoka was a very interesting man.
