Hyakumonogatari Kaidenkai, “A Gathering of One Hundred Supernatural Tales”, was the first and most comprehensive monogatari of popular Kwaidan (“tales of a ghostly nature,”) gathered by the monk Kaideo. It was all collected from popular accounts, mostly from among the heimin, and forged into a greater whole. It was an example of the Denki Monogatari sub-category. [1]

Legacy Edit

Kaideo's collection had a lasting effect on the tradition of storytelling, such as the courtly game called “The Game of 100 Tales” and the nemuranai known as Kaidanshu. [2]
