Old Japanese art scrolls and Yokai

I found a link to a Japanese site exhibiting giant scans of scrolls, many of them featuring yokai and other things from Japanese folklore (an interest of mine) but iewable only in a tiny window that you have to-- uh-- scroll through to see all parts of the images. I've been tediously reconstructing the whole scrolls by zooming it to full magnification, screencapping each segment of the scroll, and patching them all together again in Photoshop. For smaller scrolls, I have managed to do as many as 3 a day, and for larger scrolls, it has taken as much as 3 days per scroll. Since I'm putting so much work into patching them together, I'd like for anyone with an interest in the subject to know where to find them. It is an ongoing project with more scrolls to come, but here is what I've done so far:

Plus a few more scrolls and Japanese items in my documents:

(Not an ad, I'm in no way compensated for any of this).

Fascinating stuff, particularly for those with an interest in supernatural lore of Japan.

Some beautiful artwork here, especially the interplay of fore-, mid-, and background images. I only wish I could have read the text better so that I could understand the story .
