Tamashizume cover.png

Tamashizume (魂鎮, literally Appeasing The Spirits) is a short book written by folklorist Seijiro Makabe, featured in an anthology of Japanese folklore, which ultimately became his last work. After Makabe's death during the events which occurred in Minakami Village, the notebook which Makabe had written in during his travels was taken by his apprentice, Ryozo Munakata, by whom it was edited and published some years later. It is sixteen pages long, and dedicated to Makabe's good friend Dr. Kunihiko Asou. The book also contains a few illustrations of the village and the area surrounding it.

Tamashizume can be found as supplemental material at the back of the official guidebook for Fatal Frame II.
