Are there any boundaries between youkai and humans? This summer, there will be a large collection of “Kawan funny” youkai in Kawasaki City!
「Yokai / Human From Fantasy to Real」
Youkai have been feared by people, causing phenomena that cannot be explained by science since ancient times. Not only a mysterious phenomenon, but also the existence of a variant has been compared to a youkai. It is a youkai that has long been recognized as an existence beyond human wisdom, but since the Edo period, people have sometimes been humorous through publications such as Tokuyama Ishien's “Painting Hundred Nights”. Has been loved by On the other hand, as science and technology develops in the modern age, the desires and fears created by humans become more obvious than the invisible beings like youkai. In the Meiji Era, the fear of human work was emphasized by two external wars, the Sino-Japanese War and the Russo-Japanese War.
In this exhibition, the horror and awe of people from early modern times to modern times are changing from ghosts to humans – from fantasy to another. Pay attention to the line, and trace from about 100 collections in the Civic Museum.
Chapter 1 Are you scared? interesting? Youkai
“Yokai” is known to cause strange phenomena as a supernatural existence and to give fear and anxiety to humans. At the same time, it has been loved by people as a mysterious existence in nature and familiar things. In the early modern times, it was commonly called “monster”, and a variety of youkai were created to give people various fears, anxiety, and sometimes good luck. In the Edo period, when the publishing culture flourished, Toshiyama Toshiyama's “Drawing Hyakuki Hyakuyo” was published in 1776, and the appearance of youkai gradually became standardized. Here are a number of youkai that have been loved by people as scary and drowning as a character that has both fear and humor.

Chapter 2 The boundary between youkai and humans
Sometimes, youkai appear in front of people as something that distorts or disciplines humans. Its characteristics can be seen from the appearance of demons appearing as satires in society in the appearances of demons appearing in hell picture scrolls and in Ukiyo-e in the Edo and Meiji periods. In addition, “ghosts” and “skeletons” that exist in the world of the dead also appear as part of the human figure. The boundary between “Yokai” and “Human” is explored from the characteristics of the existence between humans and youkai.

Chapter 3 Human Scar
Yokai, which has long been regarded as a subject of people's anxiety and fear, or as a part of nature, will become one of the academic fields when it comes to modern times. Also, as science and technology developed, mysterious natural phenomena were elucidated, and in contrast, murder and war emphasized the inner surface of human beings and the fear of humans themselves. In the Meiji period, the Sino-Japanese War broke out in 1894, and ten years later, the Russo-Japanese War began. We trace the fear of "human", centering on war Nishiki-e, which records the times of turbulence.
