I've read a few books about Japanese folktales, ghost stories and such, and this is my most favorite one in the meantime. It's a classic but easy to read, and the author told it in a way like jotting down his personal journey. Many explanation, good sense of humor, and well selected stories. A good book to read if you just get to know 'kwaidan' things.

I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in this topic : )
