Invitation to strange adventure with Hiroshi Aramata’s team, investigating ghosts and monsters

Main Visual

A paleontologist, an art critic and an academic specializing in monsters from Japanese folklore form an investigation team, led by naturalist Hiroshi Aramata. In eastern Japan, they embark on a tour of mysteries befitting Japan's new Reiwa era—scary, strange, intellectually curious. They also visit ghostly sites and see paintings of ghosts and monsters witnessed, captured, and sometimes even eaten during the Edo period, always chasing mystery.



A journey of mysteries, Aramata-style


Capture monsters! Meet ghosts. The investigating team can't believe their eyes.
