A-Yokai-A-Day: Aka manto.
http://matthewmeyer.net/blog/2016/10/31/a-yokai-a-day-aka-manto/

Happy Halloween! It’s my favorite day of the year, and also one of the reasons I ever got into yokai in the first place. A-Yokai-A-Day was started as a Halloween celebration, so it’s al…

Tonight on A-Yokai-A-Day: Akateko, a creepy hand that drops down from trees to grab at you!
http://matthewmeyer.net/blog/2016/10/29/a-yokai-a-day-akateko/
Today I gave another yokai presentation at Shofuso Japanese House and Garden. Tonight, instead of a yokai lecture like last night, I was able to hold a modern-day hyakumonogatari kaidankai, or ghos…

Ever wonder what yokai causes you to laugh sarcastically? Read about "nigawarai" today on A-Yokai-A-Day!
http://matthewmeyer.net/blog/2016/10/27/a-yokai-a-day-nigawarai/
Like the shiro ukari, today’s yokai is one that started out just as an illustration. Unlike shiro ukari, though, nigawari originally didn’t even have a name to serve as a clue to its me…

Official Post from Matthew Meyer: Greetings yokai fans! And happy Thanksgiving!On Thanksgiving my mother always pull old decorations out of the attic, such as a cornucopia, a teddy bear riding a sled, and some cute little sewn mice wearing pilgrim hats, among other things.

Well well well! It's A-Yokai-A-Day: kyokotsu!
http://matthewmeyer.net/blog/2016/10/30/a-yokai-a-day-kyokotsu/
There’s only one more day until Halloween, which means that after tonight, there is only one more day of A-Yokai-A-Day left, and only one more yokai after this one. Tonight’s yokai was …

A-Yokai-A-Day: Shiro ukari
This one is mysterious, but so charming. What's not to love??
http://matthewmeyer.net/blog/2016/10/26/a-yokai-a-day-shiro-ukari/
