Inspired by the ancient Japanese game Hyakumonogatari Kaidenkai or 100 Candles Game. Around a circle of 100 lit candles––amidst a sum- mer chorus of frogs & insects––participants take turns telling a ghost story or supernatural tale, each snuffing a candle upon finishing. When the final candle is extinguished a Yōkai (ghost or spirit) can be seen with the naked eye…
