Tōkaidō Yotsuya kaidan (東海道四谷怪談) (translation: Ghost Story of Yotsuya in Tōkaidō) is a 1959 Japanese horror film, directed by Nobuo Nakagawa and based on the 19th century Japanese kabuki play by Nanboku Tsuruya titled Yotsuya Kaidan. It is also known as The Ghost of Yotsuya (1959) in film reference sources. The English-subtitled print runs 76 minutes. The film was in Eastman Color and Shintoho-Scope, and is considered by many critics to be the best of the myriad adaptations of the Yotsuya Ghost Legend.
The film falls in a trend of Japanese horror films throughout the 1950s and 1960s. In these ghost story films, greed commonly leads to murder and extramarital affairs, many involving former Samurai characters.
