The key to an effectively spooky urban legend, is believability. If you don’t think it can happen to you, it’s not going to chill your bones. It’s just the way that urban legends and ghost tales work. And while a lot of cultures have their own unique stories, there’s just something about the ones from Japan that just hit you in the spooky parts of your soul.
Just have a read through of these legends and then vow to never talk to strangers, walk alone at night or look in the dark cracks and crevices in your home. In fact, just stay in bed.
It’s safer there.
