2018 Theme: Superstitious?

Yay, the 13th edition of CAMERA JAPAN!

Or should we be a bit more careful since the number 13 is deemed to be bad luck? We like to think that we are not superstitious, but just in case, we did some research on spirits and yokai (Japanese mythological creatures), to see how they manifest themselves.

Not all of them are evil, some are even friendly, others are mischievous, and some are just there. But all of them are rooted in folklore, sometimes ancient, and sometimes modern, and based on beliefs, or would that be superstitious? You can encounter these creatures yourselves in the events and films listed below.
