Onibi: Diary of a Yokai Ghost Hunter Paperback / softback
by C. Brun
Part fantasy, part travelogue, Diary Of A Yokai Ghost Hunter follows the adventures of two foreign visitors as they tour Japan.
When they buy an antique camera along the way, they discover they can capture images of Japan's invisible spirit world.
The forgotten spirits they meet can be kindly, mischievous, and some, downright dangerous.
Everywhere they go from forests to Shinto temples to fishing villages they are met with Yokai, the Japanese word for supernatural monsters, ghosts, and demons.
The subject of Yokai is wildly popular right now and is featured prominently in books, websites, and online videos.
Google receives thousands of searches on the topic daily.
Readers 10-18 who cherished books like Cool Japan Guide and Diary of a Tokyo Teen will delight in this comic book style adventure.
The graphic novel format will appeal to diehard anime and manga fans while stressing the importance this ancient spirit world is to the Japanese culture.
