Yokai is the term for demons, sprites, ghosts, and all other supernatural apparitions of Japanese folklore. They can be neutral, malevolent, and sometimes even kind as recently popular anti-pandemic yokai Amabie has reminded us.
Despite their numbers, talented miniature pop-up book artist Mamehon Dollhouse (@mame_lili_lily) has managed to fit an impressive amount inside their beautifully crafted pop-up book titled "The Yokai House."
The level of detail and craftsmanship alone is amazing, but it's truly impressive how @mame_lili_lily is able to fit so many famous Yokai and their personalities into such a small package. Just when you think the book may end, up comes Azuki arai, a red bean washing spirit, as well as Akaname--a mysterious spirit who licks the the grime and filth off bathtubs and bathrooms to encourage children to keep their restrooms clean!
The exterior is just as awesome.
