The basement 2 gallery in Tokyo University  of  the Art  TOKYO GEIJUTU DAIGAKU ART MUSEUM

The painting of a Japanese ghost is named "Yurei-ga".
This exhibitions' main paintings from Sanyutei Encho's Yurei-ga collection. Encho is the most famous professional storyteller in Japan which was born in the Edo era, especially Japanese ghost story field. In this exhibition you can enjoy various kinds of Japanese ghosts on a very famous Ukiyow and a great master's Japanese painting.

Anyway in Japan, there is the traditional culture in summer which is people enjoy ghost story. It has been said that people become feeling a cold by it.
When Encho was still in alive and well, people enjoyed his ghost storytelling and Kabuki performance based his ghost story. 
The Kabuki titled "Botan dourou" has been one of the most famous Kabuki performance ever now. I've gone to see the play a few times. Also I saw the movie "Botan dourou" on TV many times. I was not so scared in the fact, I felt it's a sad story. Some Ukiyoe of Kabuki "Botan dourou" are on display at the gallery. 

On heat day in Tokyo's summer, why don't you enjoy "Yurei-ga"?  
I think Yureiga is absolutely not scarier than the movie "Ring" and "Juon", don't worry! (Sae)
