Youkai (ayakashi, bakemono) are the mythical creatures the prowl the streets of Japan and are featured on numerous manga and anime stories. These strange, wondrous creatures range from fuzzy woodland animals, to common household objects, and even the everyday human and more. Their presence transcends many different aspects of the Japanese culture. Here’s your chance to learn more about your favorite supernatural characters.
Join old friends and make new ones on Sunday 10/25 at 1:00pm. Come in your best cosplay, and enjoy a presentation on understanding youkai and their place in Japanese culture. Refreshments will be provided and a prize donated by Weekend Anime for the best costume.
