Japanese Ghost Story : My daughter's birthday



Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Ghost Story

 

That day was my daughter's birthday so a lot of her friends had gathered for the birthday party.
But her best friend was nowhere to be seen. My daughter insisted that we start the party only when her best friend comes.

We continued to wait for a long time, but the friend didn't turn up. I persuaded my daughter to start the party as we couldn't wait forever. Moreover, the other friends had started getting bored of waiting.

So, the party started...

At the beginning, my daughter was not happy with me for making her start the party without her best friend, but as the party continued on, she started enjoying it together with her friends.


We did a lot of fun things in the party: chit-chatted, played bingo, ate cake. And  in such a way, the party came to an end.


After all, her best friend didn't arrive. When she realized it, she grew a little sad.

After the party, I was cleaning up the room. In the midst of it, I saw my daughter running up the stairs and going up into her room. She looked happy.

Strangely, I could her talking to someone else inside that room. "How is that possible?" I wondered.

I got worried and went to her room.

She was all alone! I check every corner but no one else was there.

I asked her, "With whom were you talking?" She replied, "The friend who didn't came to the party."

"I can't see. Where is your friend right now?", I asked her. She pointed under the bed.

I looked under the bed...

Her friend was there...

But the friends' face was completely crushed and blood was gushing out of the body.
I couldn't hold my self and screamed at the top of my lungs.

I came to know after that. That day, her friend was on the way to the party but got involved into an accident and passed away.

That friend didn't break the promise after all...even after death.

Japanese Cryptic: The doorbell


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story

 

Recently, someone has been playing doorbell-prank on me.

There it occurs again! That person is back to prank me.

But I can't do anything as I'm scared.

...The bell has been pressed 8...no, 9-times, today. Ah, it stopped.

Why does the person rings the bell for different number of times everyday?

I remember, they rang it 5-times yesterday. Before that it happened for 1-time.

Before that they rang it 4-times, and even before that day, it happened 1 or 2-times...

I don't quite remember the ringing frequency before that but I believe it was the first day.


Tomorrow, how many times are they going to ring it?

For how long is this going to continue?

Japanese Urban Legend: Kokkuri-san's voice


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Urban Legend

Kokkuri-san is coming for you


The game "Kokkuri-san"* was quite popular when I was in elementary school.

I had always wanted to try it but never got the opportunity. That's because during school time we would get yelled at by the teachers if found playing the game. At home too, I couldn't play it as my parents didn't allow it.

A certain day I got the perfect chance to play it together with my friends as my parents were away that day.



My house has a Japanese-styled room adjacent to a Buddhist altar room. We decided to play the game in that Japanese-styled room. After doing all the preparations, we all sat in a circular formation.
We started asking various questions and kokkuri-san answered all of them. Some answers delighted us, other worried us.

I was enjoying this fortune-telling game very much.

While the game was going on, I started getting curious about kokkuri-san. I thought, "Kokkuri-san is a fox but then how can it understand human language? Maybe it can also speak human language!"

Japanese Cryptic: The match girl

 

Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story


It was a very chilly night.

A girl was in the town trying to sell matches.

"My dad told me: if I don't sell the matches, I can't return home."

She was trying to sell the matches desperately, but sadly nobody seemed to be interested in her.

Unable to bear the sheer-cold, she took out one match an lit it on fire.

A Christmas tree and a goose could be seen in the flame.

She kept on staring at the magnificent view in the flame until it went out.

Once again she lit the match. This time, her late grandma appeared in the flame.

She thought of ways that would prolong the fire so that she could see her grandma for a little longer.

She came up with the best idea. Her idea allowed her to stay with her grandma for the whole night.

The next day, 2 corpses were discovered.
