Kwaidan: Japanese Ghost Stories



From the pen of Lafcadio Hearn come two of Japan’s most infamous ghost stories…

In the chilling Yuki Onna, a young woodcutter is spared death by the unearthly snow woman. Then she disappears. But for how long?

In Hō-ichi the earless, the blind musician’s life is in peril after a visit by vengeful samurai spectres. But survival comes at a cost…

York’s Kaminari UK Taiko Drummers will perform specially written and adapted pieces in this unique show. Featuring big-screen narration by Jonathan Goodwin (Don’t Go into the Cellar Theatre Company) and with special guest Michael Graham on koto (Japanese harp) and the atmospheric biwa (Japanese lute).
