Toriyama Sekien Gazu Hyakki Yakō Zen Gashū Reviews
This is a great book for learning about Japanese folklore, the yōkai, goblins or monsters of which even modern fiction in Japan pays tribute. Even if you can't read Japanese, you can get a good laugh at the interesting drawings, that most of the time are more funny that scary. If you can read Japanese, you can also try your skill with both the tongue in cheek classical Japanese text and the kuzushiji (cursive, abbreviated characters) readings... good luck!
I give this 4 stars with the caveat that I don't read Japanese and simply bought the book for the interesting early ukiyo-e art of various Japanese folkloric creatures (sadly, there doesn't seem to be a translated version or English commentary anywhere). A few of the pictures seem to have been reproduced poorly; otherwise, the quality is satisfactory.
