It is the first public museum in Japan to focus on the theme of yokai, and contains about 5,000 valuable materials and artworks collected by yokai researcher Goichi Yumoto.

Moment of Joy
The Miyoshi Mononoke Museum is divided into three areas: the Japanese Yokai Area, the Inabu Monogatari Area, and the TeamLab Yokai Amusement Park Area. In the Japanese Yokai Area, visitors can learn about famous monsters and the materials in which they appear, while the Inou Monogatariroku Area introduces the Inou Monogatariroku, an account of a boy’s encounter with monsters in Miyoshi City around the 18th century. The “TeamLab Specter Amusement Park Area” is a hands-on learning area where visitors can draw their own specter pictures on paper and move them around on a giant screen using state-of-the-art technology.
