creepy Japanese Ghost Ukiyoe by YukiSakuma creepy Japanese Ghost Ukiyoe by YukiSakuma
Creapy Japanese Ghost Ukiyoe, VectorArt of the Original one from Katsushika Hokusai

I hope it will visit you in yours dreams! XD

In this tale based on an actual event, Koheiji was killed by his wife and her lover. As revenge he returns to haunt the couple while they are in bed together inside mosquito netting. The writer Santô Kyôden, also known as the Ukiyo-e artist Kitao Masanobu, developed the Koheiji story in his 1803 novel, Bizarre Tale of Revenge at Asaka Marsh (Fukushû kidan Asaka-numa). In 1808, the story was told on the kabuki stage, where it was an immediate hit.

The direct link between ukiyo-e and anime/manga is most clear in the more horror themed prints. I wonder why that is?
