Yokai Weekend

Yokai are supernatural creatures and spirits from Japanese folklore that live all around us. Learn about them in this all ages weekend event at Shofuso! Families can participate in a scavenger hunt and win prizes. Listen to kamishibai tales of ogres, water imps, and goblins, and craft a yokai to take home!


  • Scavenger Hunt: follow the clues and find real objects around Shofuso that inspired yokai myths
  • Kamishibai Storytelling (every hour starting at 12 PM): experience Japan’s classic paper theater style of storytelling with slightly spooky stories
  • Crafts: sit down with staff and make spooky origami!
  • Tsukumogami Flea Market (only on Saturday, October 28): in Japanese folklore, tsukumogami are objects or tools that come to life after 100 years of use. Explore our Yokai-inspired flea market, where vintage Japanese wonders, each with its own unique story and spirit, find new purpose!

All activities are free after regular admission.
