Japanese term for the psychic photography (or thoughtography ) of the young Japanese psychic Masuaki Kiyota, who emerged in 1977 claiming and demonstrating a number of unusual psychokinetic abilities. He later admitted that he had accomplished everything through fraud. The Japan Nengraphy Association, headed by Tsutomu Miyauchi, was formed to investigate such phenomena, which appears to have some genuine practitioners. The association is headquartered at Awiji-cho 2-25, Kannda, Chioda, Tokyo.
