Yurei: The Japanese Ghost

by Zack Davisson Author

Inspired by personal experiences with Japan's vengeful spirits, Davisson investigates the origins and legends of the Japanese ghosts known as yurei. "I lived in a haunted apartment...," Davisson writes at the begining of his definitive work. Shifting from anecdotes to deep research to translation of ancient ghost stories, he explores the persistence of yurei in modern Japan and their continued popularity throughout the West.
