''Yokai Monogatari'' is the Japanese for ''Ghost Story''.
Yokai are creatures from Japanese folklore, during the Edo period much attention was devoted to those traditional monsters and apparitions.
The Kaibutsu Ehon ("Illustrated Book of Monsters") catalog some of them.
Mikoshi-nyūdō is a monk-like creature that grows taller the more you look at it. Nue is chimera-like bringer of misfortune that can fly and morph into a dark cloud. Kasha is a cat-like demon that descends from the sky to feed on corpses before cremation. Buruburu is a forest-dwelling ghost that causes victims to shiver violently. Yanari are little demons that produce the creaking sounds heard in old houses.
The purpose of this mixtape is to telling a Yokai story through the mix, a sort of ''narrative-mixtape''.
Please enjoy! Otanoshimi kudasai!
