Consists of four stories of the supernatural based on Japanese folk material. In The black hair, a poor young samurai leaves his first wife to marry a rich woman. When he is unhappy in his second marriage, he returns to his first wife, who at first appears unchanged from when he last saw her. In The woman of the snow, a woodcutter is spared by a mysterious ghost-like woman in the snow, but must promise never to tell anyone what he has seen. In Hoichi, the earless, a blind musician-monk named Hoichi is commanded by a gathering of ghosts to sing the saga of their ancient deeds. The head monk paints Hoichi's body with prayer verses to protect him, but unfortunately overlooks Hoichi's ears. In In a cup of tea, a writer wonders what would happen to a person who drinks another's soul and finds out
Kwaidan by Masaki Kobayashi( Visual )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in Japanese and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After more than a decade of sober political dramas and social-minded periodpieces, the great Japanese director Masaki Kobayashi shifted gears dramatically for this rapturously stylized quartet of ghost stories. Featuring colorfully surreal sets and luminous cinematography, these haunting tales of demonic comeuppance and spiritual trials, adapted from writer Lafcadio Hearn's collections of Japanese folklore, are existentially frightening and meticulously crafted. In The black hair, a poor young samurai leaves his first wife to marry a rich woman. When he is unhappy in his second marriage, he returns to his first wife, who at first appears unchanged from when he last saw her. In The woman of the snow, a woodcutter is spared by a mysterious ghost-like woman in the snow, but must promise never to tell anyone what he has seen. In Hoichi, the earless, a blind musician-monk named Hoichi is commanded by a gathering of ghosts to sing the saga of their ancient deeds.

Kwaidan by Masaki Kobayashi( Visual )

20 editions published between 1964 and 2016 in Japanese and French and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A quartet of ghost stories based on the writings of Lafcadio Hearn, a 19th century Orientalist, of stories collected on his travels in the Japanese countryside, and from the well established Japanese tradition of Kwaidan (weird tales). Ghosts in Japanese culture are the spirits of those who died a violent death and did not undergo the ceremony allowing them to travel to meet their ancestors. The first story, Black Hair, is about a samurai who deserts his wife and then returns to her only to find that all is not what it appears to be. Snow Woman tells of a peasant who falls under the spell of a sorceress. In the third story, shot in the manner of a scroll painting, Hoichi the Earless is a bewitched blind performer who, to his cost, recites poetry before the ghosts of the nobility. The reflexive fourth story, In a Cup of Tea, tries to account for the inconclusiveness of many Japanese ghost stories
