Books on Japanese mythology or novels inspired by it

Jump to last reply

I'm in the planning stages for my next trip and wanted some reading materials to get me pumped! :)

I'm interested in learning more about the folklore around Japan. It seems that Japan has quite a rich history of gods, nature spirits, ghost, demons, etc. I saw plenty fox spirit statues on my first trip and there's lots of references in there media-- Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Natsume's Book of Friends, Okami, etc.

I was wondering if anyone had recommendations for the mythology or novels inspired by them?
