Hoichi is a blind biwa participant who’s summoned to carry out for a court docket of imperial ghosts. As one leads him there by the hand, Hoichi says, “I do not deserve such success,” not likely understanding the character of his scenario—that these are lifeless folks. The ghosts need to hear the story of their ultimate battle, which we have simply seen, recited the best way solely Hoichi can.
It’s “A Portrait of the Artist as a Ghost Whisperer.” Hoichi communes with the lifeless greater than the dwelling, and there is a hazard in that for any of us, whether or not or not it’s sifting by means of lifeless letters or the detritus of popular culture.
The ultimate, abbreviated phase of “Kwaidan,” Chawan no Naka (“In a Cup of Tea”), describes itself as an unfinished “story a couple of man who swallows down one other’s soul.” Kannai (Kan’emon Nakamura) beholds a face that’s not his personal mirrored in his tea.
When you see a ghost, you may both drink it down or deny it. My recommendation could be to not deny “Kwaidan.”
