Yamakaze Ran

Tasogare no kitsunebi (Will o' the Wisps at Twilight)


Hello, I am Yamakaze Ran.
I am very honored to be able to participate in the ‘Eshi 100’ exhibition again this year.
The theme for this year is ‘a scene’ and I chose to illustrate a traditional scene that has been passed down to us; that of a will o’ the wisp, or 'fox light’ as it is called in Japanese.
The twilight immediately following sunset is the time of day when people are most likely to come into contact with the supernatural.
I personally have never come into contact with this kind of occult happening, however, Japan has a strong oral tradition describing events of this type so I think it is true to call it a ‘scene of Japan’.
