About your host

I love Japanese monsters and ghosts, and I've learned quite a lot about both in the 13 years I've lived here. It's so fun being able to share my knowledge with you.

What we’ll do

We'll meet near the shrine of Abe-no-Seimei, and learn about Japanese monsters! (To learn more about Seimei, join my Creepy Japan—the Wizard of Ancient Kyoto.

Where you'll be

Starting at Ichijo Modoribashi, we'll walk down Yokai Street and take in the shops and experiences along the way.
