Bakeneko Locations - Discover them all!
Bakeneko (化け猫, Bakeneko) is a type of Japanese yōkai, or supernatural creature.
The abilities attributed to the bakeneko are various, but include shapeshifting into humans, wearing a towel or napkin on the head and dancing, speaking human words, cursing humans, manipulating dead people, possessing humans, and lurking in the mountains. As an unusual example, on Aji island, Oshika District, Miyagi Prefecture and in the Oki Islands, Shimane Prefecture, there is a story of a cat that shapeshifted into a human and wanted to engage in sumo.
The bakeneko makes elusive appearances throughout the ZOTTO journey, but it's up to the audience member to decide how, when, and where they are encountered.

About the Artist: Casey Kawaguchi
As you move throughout Denver you might get the feeling you're being watched - by a Japanese warrior woman, almost always in red, white and black. She peeks around columns under highways and peers down from RiNo warehouse walls. Don't be alarmed; her creator Casey Kawaguchi, a self taught street artist who works entirely freehand and has been evolving his nameless character for over a decade, says the battle is with him. You can find Kawaguchi's work captured in depth in the documentary short film "Mastery PT.1 & PT.2". Which has followed Kawaguchi over three and a half years of his journey.
