Familiarity of the Strange: Japan's Gothic Tradition
"It may be argued that this essay calls for a genre appropriation in the form of colonialism, but the Japanese Gothic shares with the West its subversion of religious and social norms, an obsession with sex and death, and a fear of the supernatural or unknown. These are human qualities, not the province of one culture."
