08 Utagawa Kuniyoshi

This is a psychedelic reimagination based on the artwork Yotsuya Kaidan by Utagawa Kuniyoshi. In the painting, the actors Onoe Kikugoro II plays the role of the Ghost of Oiwa. Scarce diptych of a scene from the story of Oiwa and Tamiya Iemon. It is a tale of betrayal, murder, and ghostly revenge. Arguably the most famous Japanese ghost story of all time, it has been adapted for film over 30 times, and continues to be an influence on Japanese horror today.
