Welcome to MatthewMeyer.net, the website of the author and illustrator of The Night Parade of One Hundred Demons and The Hour of Meeting Evil Spirits.
Greeting yokai fans!
Today I present tenjoname, the ceiling licker. I’m pretty sure my house has had a tenjoname in it at some point, because our ceilings are covered in spots. At first we thought they were water stains from a leaky roof, but now… now I’m pretty convinced it was a tenjoname after all. (I’m pretty sure we have a sakabashira as well, so this house is clearly yokai-friendly.)
