"There are no vampires in Japan. That is the position of the Emperor. The Emperor is wrong..."
Japan, 1899. A party of vampires - exiled from Britain by Prince Dracula - seeks refuge in Tokyo and are confined to Yokai Town, a ghetto where the Meiji Emperor keeps the country's vampires - bizarre creatures as different from European nosferatu as they are from living humans. Dr Genevi�ve Dieudonn�, Kostaki, a soldier, Daniel Dravot, a spy, and Christina Light, a revolutionary princess, try to survive in Yokai Town as forces within and outside its walls threaten to destroy the newcomers and the long-time residents. What secret lies under the Temple of One Thousand Monsters?
