Thrilling Japanese stories of vampires, ghosts and renegade samurai.

Step back through the mists of time to ancient Japan, where wandering samurai seek revenge for the death of their master, the red-eyed spectres of an executed man and his wife haunt a palace, and wild animals have great power over men. This collection of classic folktales, which range from adventures to mysteries and ghost stories, is beautifully illustrated with lavish art that evokes this magical time and place.

Tales of the Samurai includes these legendary stories:

  • The Forty-Seven Ronin
  • The Vampire cat of Nabeshima
  • Kazuma's Revenge
  • The Prince and the Badger
  • The Ghost of Sakura
