:::SPECIAL::: # Bring A Chill To Your Hot Summer! Terrifying Haunted Houses in Japan!


Need to cool down in Japan's hot summer?
Other than going to water parks, visiting haunted houses maybe another good choice!

Have you watched the Hollywood horror movies "The Ring" or "The Grudge" before? Were you sacred by the ghosts in these stories? Do you know that these ghosts are actually from Japanese original movies "Ringu" and "Ju-on" which are very famous in Japan and even Asia? Sadako, Kayako and Toshio are names that may give you goosebumps!

In Japan, there are many haunted houses can be found. From the traditional ones where a long hair lady in a long white dress welcomes you in the dark to the ones with zombies waits for you at a hospital etc. Also, how can we miss the abandoned school where students disappeared mysteriously.

Today, we are going to take you to three terrifying but interesting haunted houses in Japan! Ready for some chills?

There is a rumor in Japan that you can't just throw away the dolls if you don't want them anymore because they will always come back to you no matter where you dump them. Seriously? Let me out please >_<!!
