Yokai are, literally and etymologically, attractive and bewitching mysteries.
The term’s wide use, especially in popular culture, makes it difficult to translate and define. By greatly simplifying, we could say that yokai are supernatural beings who inhabit the borders between our reality and the “other world,” allowing themselves to be seen under certain circumstances. They may adopt inert or living forms: human, animal, vegetable, or a mixture thereof. They also tend to represent a corruption of the elements of nature.
