Kwaidan by Masaki Kobayashi( Visual )

26 editions published between 1964 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Consists of four stories of the supernatural based on Japanese folk material. In The black hair, a poor young samurai leaves his first wife to marry a rich woman. When he is unhappy in his second marriage, he returns to his first wife, who at first appears unchanged from when he last saw her. In The woman of the snow, a woodcutter is spared by a mysterious ghost-like woman in the snow, but must promise never to tell anyone what he has seen. In Hoichi, the earless, a blind musician-monk named Hoichi is commanded by a gathering of ghosts to sing the saga of their ancient deeds. The head monk paints Hoichi's body with prayer verses to protect him, but unfortunately overlooks Hoichi's ears. In In a cup of tea, a writer wonders what would happen to a person who drinks another's soul and finds out
Sasameyuki = The Makioka sisters by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Visual )

19 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in Japanese and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japan, 1938. War is looming on the horizon, but the Makioka sisters are far more concerned with their domestic troubles. The sisters have taken over their family's kimono manufacturing business in Osaka, and are well off, traveling together to view the changing of the seasons--cherry blossoms in Kyoto, brilliant leaves in the fall. Tsuruko and Sachiko, the older two, have been married for quite some time. Tradition demands that they marry in order of their birth, but marrying off the shy, conservative Yukiko is proving difficult. These challenges have been particularly frustrating for youngest sister Taeko, who is eager to marry and move on with her life. A graceful study of a family at a turning point in history, and a poignant evocation of changing times and fading customs

Kwaidan by Masaki Kobayashi( Visual )

3 editions published in 2015 in Japanese and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After more than a decade of sober political dramas and social-minded periodpieces, the great Japanese director Masaki Kobayashi shifted gears dramatically for this rapturously stylized quartet of ghost stories. Featuring colorfully surreal sets and luminous cinematography, these haunting tales of demonic comeuppance and spiritual trials, adapted from writer Lafcadio Hearn's collections of Japanese folklore, are existentially frightening and meticulously crafted. In The black hair, a poor young samurai leaves his first wife to marry a rich woman. When he is unhappy in his second marriage, he returns to his first wife, who at first appears unchanged from when he last saw her. In The woman of the snow, a woodcutter is spared by a mysterious ghost-like woman in the snow, but must promise never to tell anyone what he has seen. In Hoichi, the earless, a blind musician-monk named Hoichi is commanded by a gathering of ghosts to sing the saga of their ancient deeds. The head monk paints Hoichi's body with prayer verses to protect him, but unfortunately overlooks Hoichi's ears.

On May 24, 1945, a young man and woman met by chance on the Sukiyabashi bridge in Tokyo at the time of an air raid. They didn't even know each other's names, but promised to meet on the same bridge six months later on November 24 if they were not killed in subsequent bombings. The man, Haruki, went to the bridge, however the woman, Machiko, was not there. She had been forced into an arranged marriage and moved far away to the island of Sado. Haruki eventually learned that Machiko had given birth to a child and he moved to Hokkaido where he took up work on a farm. He met a young Ainu woman named Yumi who, unlike Machiko, was passionate and adventurous. Yumi fell in love with him, even though she was engaged to another. Meanwhile, Machiko asked her husband for a divorce and when he refused she ran away to Hokkaido in search of Haruki. They met again, but were separated by the tenacity of Yumi's feelings for Haruki and Machiko's husband's great anger. Machiko was taken back to Tokyo by her husband. She later obtains a divorce and travels alone to Kyushu. By chance, Haruki learns of this from Machiko's ex-husband and goes to find her in Kyushu where they are reunited as a couple
