“Youkai-kentei”(Monster tests) were held in Sakaiminato city in Tottori pref. and Chofu city in Tokyo on Oct,27th.

These were the 8th tests which started in 2006 by The chamber of commerce and industry of Sakaiminato. The test is for prevailing knowledge of Japanese traditional monsters created by Shigeru Mizuki, a popular cartoonist who is known for the comic series of  “Ge-ge-ge no Kitarou” and other monster -related works . He is from Sakaiminato and lives now in Chofu, so the cities were chosen as the venues of the tests.

Mizuki’s biography written by his wife was dramatized by NHK TV station and that “Ge-ge-ge No Noubo”(Gegege’s wife) also made his works very popular as well.    This time the three levels of the tests,namely, the biginner level, the intermediate level, and the advanced level were taken totaly by about 400 test takers. The successful takers will be given a title of “Youkai hakase”(Doctor of Youkai or  monster master) by the host.  2220 people have received the title since 2006 so far.
