The grave of the Japanese author and “rakugo” storyteller Sanyutei Encho (1839-1900) is at Zenshoan. Encho was especially good at creating ghost stories and emotional rakugo stories. His ghost story “Botan-doro” (Peony Lantern) is set in Yanaka. Telling ghost stories in the summer is a Japanese tradition. Encho collected “yurei-ga” scrolls, chilling pictures of Japanese ghosts that are now part of Zenshoan’s collection.
