Yokai Pandemonium 2020 Gate

Japanese folklore enthusiasts and horror fans alike will find new excitement in the 2020 Youkai Pandemonium exhibition. An eerie yet fascinating exhibit, it is located at the Grand Gallery on the 1st floor of the Kadokawa Musashino Museum, being one of its many first stage projects.

The exhibit features paintings, traditional artifacts and rare items spanning several centuries. After passing a gate called “Fushimaden,” visitors will be able to see “youkai corridors” featuring picture scrolls of youkai and historical and traditional artifacts. The exhibit even features fossils, which point to the complex and intriguing origins of youkai myths.
