The third and final volume of our Kaiki series returns us to the Capital City: Tokyo. While Japan has modernized, renaming old Edo as new-born Tokyo, strange secrets remain hidden under the chrome and spotlights, unaffected by our beliefs in Science and Technology. Enjoy a new collection of stories introducing the strange denizens and happenings of the shadowy world of Japanese uncanny literature. Selected and with commentary by Higashi Masao, a recognized researcher and author in the field.

The list of authors includes some of the most famous names in Japanese literature: Akutagawa Ryunosuke, Tanizaki Jun'ichiro, Edogawa Rampo, Hisao Juran, Endo Shusaku, Kawabata Yasunari and others.
