The Ehon Hyaku Monogatari (絵本百物語?, "Picture Book of a Hundred Stories"), also called the Tōsanjin Yawa (桃山人夜話?, "Night Stories of the People of Peach Mountain") is a book of images by Japanese artist Takehara Shunsen, published about 1841. The book was intended as a followup to Toriyama Sekien's Gazu Hyakki Yakō series. Like those books, it is a supernatural bestiary of ghosts, monsters, and spirits which has had a profound influence on subsequent yōkai imagery in Japan.
