Ghosts: The Ghosts of Japan

Readers, this is an in-depth essay about the ghosts of Japan and their history – so worth a read, try to make the time!  It fascinated me, probably because I lived in Japan for four years and was struck by the periodic appeasement of the dead by the living, something mentioned in the article and illustrated during the Obon holidays. This fine piece comes to us from Aeon, via Ghosts of Japan!
