Yokaiville, officially known as 松林町(Alternative name: 妖怪村), is a Japanese style shopping district featuring yokai themed souvenir shops, food stalls and a bakery. There’s almost always a line waiting to order the bakery’s famous bread long before the bread is fresh out the oven. In the evenings, the shimmering lanterns light up every store and elaborately displayed yokai statue , making Yokaiville a perfect spot to take photos. Though some might find Yokaiville to be a replica of Japan’s Mizuki Shigeru Road, a collision of its vibrant atmosphere and the tranquil forest environs is second to none.
