Matsunoki X Yokai Shirt

    • Wash in cold, inside out
    • Hang dry
    • Do not fold aong the image
  • "Matsunoki" was the area in Tokyo my obaachan and ojiichans (grandma/grandpa) house was.  When thinking about a design I wanted to incorporate a part of her traditional Japanese house with my favorite yokai (Japanese folklore creatures).  I had an uncle who was a writer for the manga "Ge Ge Ge no Kitaro", which was all about good and bad yokai.  I wanted to have the yokai come out after everyone was sleeping, and enjoying some good sake and izakaya type foods.

    A more detailed dedication of this shirt design will be available in my blog (coming soon with photo references). Stay tuned!
