All kinds of Yokai, spooky monsters from Kappa, Ubume, Bake-neko to unusual ones such as Todomeki (100 Eyes) and Bake-nio, are depicted in Ukiyo-e. These works speak of how imaginative people were back in the days.
The exhibition title "Ayakashi" is a classical word referring to something spooky and mysterious.
