Read full description of the books:



in japan there're two kinds of ghosts, the ones from the living and the ones from the dead, which doesn't mean there're living ghosts and dead ghosts :]

people(including chinese) convince that when people die, there'll be ghosts, ghosts are dead people. but here, this book will let you learn some other opinions

lemme offer an instance:

i wanna kill someone, and i'm alive, and then my spirit go off of my body to kill that person :D well, that's a living ghost homicide. and when i fulfill my revenge, the ghost return to my flesh and i'm still alive m/

i can't figure out whether a ghost is from a living human or a dead corpse, but ghosts do have good and evil features like us

so i believe that not all of the stories in the book are of horror...so looking forward to the Kagutaba shit, 禍具魂

Read information about the author

Ebook Japanese Ghost Stories read Online! Patrick Lafcadio Hearn (in Greek: Πατρίκιος Λευκάδιος Χερν, aka Koizumi Yakumo, in Japanese: 小泉八雲) was born in the island of Lefkas (aka Lefkada), Greece. He was a son of an army doctor Charles Hearn from Ireland and a Greek woman Rosa Cassimati (in Greek: Ρόζα Αντωνίου Κασιμάτη). After making remarkable works in America as a journalist, he went to Japan in 1890 as a journey report writer of a magazine. But as soon as he arrived in Yokohama, he quit the job because of a dissatisfaction with the contract. After that, he moved to Matsué as an English teacher of Shimané Prefectural Middle School. In Matsué, he got acquainted with his lifelong friend Nishida Sentarô, a colleague teacher, and married Koizumi Setsu, a daughter of a samurai. In 1891, he moved to Kumamoto and had taught at the Fifth High School for 3 years. Kanô Jigorô, the president of the School of that time, is known as the man who spread judo to the world.

In 1896, when he lived in Kôbé after he worked as a journalist there, he got Japanese citizenship and a new name, Koizumi Yakumo. This name was taken from "Kojiki", a Japanese ancient myth, and roughly translates as "the place where the clouds are born". On that year, he moved to Tôkyô and began to teach at the Imperial University of Tôkyô. There he got respect of students and many of them made a remarkable literary career. In addition, he wrote much reports of Japan and published in America. His works was read by so many people as an introduction of Japan. He quit the Imperial University in 1903 and began to teach at Waseda University on the year next. But after only a half year he died of angina pectoris.
