YOKAI TOUR Ⅱ Exhibition

-Large Collection of Hobgoblins, West and East, Down through the Ages-

In Japan, there is an ancient concept that spirits (= Gods) dwell in all of creation, and bizarre things out of the ordinary were considered to be the work of hobgoblins. I think that scary stories, tales of horror and monster houses in which they appeared, give you such chills that it beats the heat of summer, which is also testimony that the wonder of Japanese culture has survived from olden times up to the present.
In summer 2015, at Shiodome Park Hotel Tokyo, we have a large collection of hobgoblins down through the ages. “Rokurokubi”, a strange and incredibly beautiful woman in the daytime whose neck stretches out at night, “Kudan”, a monster with the face of a man and the body of a bull with a terrifying prophecy that you will die in 3 days, and the “Karakasa Kozou” with a child’s body that surprises people by jumping on its one leg. Scary “monsters” are not the only things on show. There are also fairies that occupy a place in the human heart and want to be friends with you someday, and cheerful “L&L” that change negative things into positive ones. Across the sea from the West, there are also monsters with weapons like money beams, breast milk splashes, and a black hole like a pupil. Of the more than 100 hobgoblins, fairies and monsters which are exhibited (or hidden) here, how many can you find? And during your search, you can completely forget even the heat of summer. This summer, why not pluck up your courage to visit the scary exhibition at the Park Hotel Tokyo?
