    わたしたちの
    たいせつなそんざい
    しんじるとでてくる
    ともだちさ
    よこにいるかも
    うえにいるかも
    かいがいからきたあなたも
    いかいのともだちに、こんにちは

    妖怪(Yōkai):人以外のものが人の形をとって現れるもの。妖怪が出現する理由は分からず、恐怖の対象となっている。人の恨み・執着心により他界から蘇る幽霊とは異なり、妖怪は出没場所が決まっている化け物である。(柳田國男著/妖怪談義より)

    Yōkai (妖怪, ghost, phantom, strange apparition) are a class of supernatural monsters in Japanese folklore. The word yōkai is made up of the kanji for "bewitching; attractive; calamity" and "apparition; mystery; suspicious".They can also be called ayakashi (妖), mononoke (物の怪), or mamono (魔物). Yōkai range eclectically from the malevolent to the mischievous, or occasionally bring good fortune to those who encounter them. Often they possess animal features (such as the Kappa, which is similar to a turtle, or the Tengu which has wings), other times they can appear mostly human, some look like inanimate objects and others have no discernible shape. Yōkai usually have a spiritual supernatural power, with shapeshifting being one of the most common. Yōkai that have the ability to shapeshift are called obake.

Specters are deeply related to the Shinto religion, especially yaoyorozu no kami (eight million gods).
In Japan, It is considered that the "being that caused bizarre things" came to be called yokai.
