Japanese Ghost Stories is a collection of the eerie and terrifying from around Japan. This book opens a window into the hidden aspects of the Japanese world of the paranormal, a place where trees grow human hair, rocks weep and there's even a graveyard where Jesus is reputed to have been buried.

Covering ancient and modern times, Japanese Ghost Stories offers not only good, old-fashioned scary stories, but some special insights into Japanese culture and psychology.

Japanese ghost stories include:
  • In Search of the Supernatural
  • Psychic Stirrings
  • New Forays into the Mystic
  • Strange but True
  • Modern-Day Hauntings
  • Scenes of Ghosts and Demons
  • Edo-Era Tales



About the Author:
From the moment she moved to Japan more than twenty-five years ago Catrien Ross time and again found herself drawn into hidden aspects of Japanese lore and culture. After her first book was published by Tuttle she moved deep into the mountains where, remaking her early Edo period kominka, she had many more strange encounters. This inspired her to establish Energy Doorways, her creative and spiritual center at the foot of Mount Fuji and the indie publisher of her new books in Japanese and English. Then, as her interest in timeless things and stories widened, she was accepted into the secretive world of Japanese antique dealers. The most mysterious phenomenon so far has been her experience of sudden genius - an abrupt onset of paintings and music which continues to erupt today.
