Yokai are a class of Japanese famous supernatural creatures that have long held a prominent place in Japanese folklore. They come in a variety of forms – from hideous demons to mischievous creatures to heroes with supernatural powers. They are sometimes dangerous to humans since Yokai are not restrained by the laws of nature and those who are not already part animal, have the ability to shape shift. The legend goes that Ippei (Shin Koyamada) was found by his foster father in a coconut shell on a beach. Although he was brought up as a normal boy, Ippei could see nature’s spirits, including Kijimuna invisible to human eyes. As with many legendary heroes Ippei was initially unaware of his supernatural talents and therefore his destiny.
The majority of the series filmed in various cities in Okinawa, Japan.
