The classic portrayal of the vampire, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, dates from 1897. While similar stories first became popular in the early to mid 19th century, it is unlikely these would have been known during the Tenpou era. Japan’s affection for the cryptid seems to date from the 1950s, probably thanks to the dissemination of Hollywood portrayals of the Dracula story.

The Japanese word for the Western vampire,  kyuuketsuki is derived from the reading of the kanji version of the word – 吸血鬼, literally ‘blood-sucking demon’.
