Description

Do you love to be rattled and spooked? Then this tour is definitely for you!

Join this adventure to the scariest and creepiest sites in Tokyo and be amazed by all the weirdness that’s out there. You will be visiting the following places:

  • Hanayashiki Amusement Park (optional): Hanayashiki Amusement Park is claimed to be the oldest amusement park in Japan, and this haunted house has been popular for a long time. It was recently renovated as it became decrepit. If you are sensitive and can feel ghost spirits, you might be able to sense them here. It is known as a place where you would see/feel real ghosts.
  • Sensoji Temple: Near the amusement park is the Sensoji temple, also a popular haunted site. During the Edo period, people who were drawn to religious places believed to have underground creatures in their backyards that counterbalanced the divine beings in their front yards (Omote). Sensoji is one of them, renowned for it’s “front” Asakusa Kannon and its “rear” (Ura) world of evil deities.
  • The Old Hag’s Pond: Our next stop on the tour is Old Hag’s Pond, near Sensoji temple. This is the site of an inn run by an evil old woman who murdered countless guests by dropping a boulder on them when they were sleeping. If you are brave enough to visit this place at night, you might hear cries ring out over the still, stagnant waters.
  • Kappabashi: The neighborhood temple that’s nicknamed “Kappa Temple” was built to appease the turtle-like aquatic goblins that are said to pull children off of bridges and drown them. The smattering of cucumbers on the altar is meant to appease the creatures who need to keep water in the bowl-like dent on their heads to survive. Just a stone’s throw from Kappa Temple is the Akiba shrine that houses Akiba Daigongen, a powerful deity associated with fire who is said to watch over the area.
  • Creepy Cafe: Last on our list is a “refreshing” drink at the weirdest cafe Tokyo has to offer. The drinks are quite “unique” such as Marijuana Vodka or try the homemade Absinthe or you might want to try the Wasabi sushi. Let’s lounge a bit and talk some more about all the ghouls and ghosts that wander around Tokyo. Alternatively, we can also head to another part of town 15 minutes away by train, where your guide will take you deep into the common man's heaven to have a meal alongside the locals in small, sometimes outdoor izakaya reminiscent of the good old Showa days of the ’60s and ’70s.
