Japanese Cryptic: Digging Holes



Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story


An online friend of mine, whom I met through a net-game, has started a part-time job in Tokyo.

His job is to go to some specified place and dig holes.

All of the places he goes to are deserted. Sometimes he's asked to do his job in dense forests, while other times he's asked to do the job in deep mountains. The hole he's asked to dig, in any case, must be very deep.

He gets paid around 30k Yen-50k Yen for digging a single hole. The money is good so he got no complaints.

He, however, has not been on the internet for a while. I wonder what happened.

Japanese Cryptic: Elevator


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story


There was a certain mansion which had an elevator that was rumored to be haunted.

Just out of curiosity, I invited A-kun and B-kun to the mansion.

"Should we really be doing this?" A-kun said with a quivering voice.

"Huh? Ghosts don't exist!" B-kun assured A-kun.

"Yeah, yeah. Ghosts really don't exist." I added to B-kun's statement.

I entered the rumored elevator.

I: "Hmm...Certainly, looks creepy in here."

B: "I don't think we should be doing this."

A: "You are scared. lol"

I: "Lol, I think the same."

B: "Hey, I don't want to hear that from you."

A: "Aren't you trembling with fear? lol"

B: "Shut the hell up!!"

I: "Now, now, don't start fighting here. lol"

*Ding*

Elevator arrives, the door opens.

They both ran away with their tail between their legs.

Japanese Ghost Story : Sleep Paralysis



Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Ghost Story




The following story is based on my personal experience during my High-school days.

As far as I remember, it was a hot and humid day. My summer holidays had just started so I didn't have anything to do. I was lying on my bed, taking a good nap thanks to the new air-con.

When I woke up, I realized that I was still half-asleep, but then something erratic happened. I came to realize that I was not able to move my body! I've never had any paranormal experience, but during those days I did experience sleep-paralysis frequently,so I had gotten used to them.

This time it happened during broad daylight, so there was no chance I was getting scared.

However, this sleep-paralysis didn't look like going away even when a lot of minutes passed. I sensed something strange.

The futon, which was covering me, started slithering down my bed.

Japanese Cryptic: The Beautiful things


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story


When  I was little, I loved marbles.

In the elementary school, I had a friend who got a bracelet made of beads, I was envious.

When I became a university student, I wanted to buy a jewel. I had a part-time job but it didn't pay me enough to by any jewel.

Now? Well, you see...the foreigners...there are lot of them in Japan now.

Why do they get piercings and tattoos all over their body. They all have something more valuable.
Blue, green, purple...sometimes those things are even in gold, silver and light-blue color.

Just like I said, I collect those things now. Though, it's quite difficult to store those things.
Why do the people who have those things give them to me? Well, they have interest in my hobbies.
I should tell you, it is very difficult to get those things.

The foreigners really love green tea, don't they?

Those things are so beautiful; I want more of them.

Japanese Cryptic: The Cursed Video

 

Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story


I'm at my house right now, completely alone, watching a YouTube video.

The said video is titled as "Cursed Video".

The contents of the video are certifiably fear-inducing, but I'd say that the quality of the video is utter garbage.

At the end of the video, a message appeared.

"UOYDNIHEBERAEW"

What the hell? Seriously, that is not scary.

The video ended with that message.

Japanese Cryptic: The Cursed Mirror


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story


There was a rumor about a certain mansion in the suburbs of Mexico city. The rumor was that the mansion had a mirror, which when touched, would suck people inside of it.

A school-student called K decided to test it as he believed it was nothing but a superstition.  He went to the mansion together with his friends.

He went to the mirror and wiped the dust with his left-hand...but nothing erratic happened. "Meh! It's a superstition like I told you guys."

When he went back home, he washed his hands as the right-hand was feeling itchy because of dust.

Japanese Cryptic: The Burning Bike


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story



My friend told this story to me.

In the dead of night, while driving on a hilly road, my fried came across a grove that was up in flames.

He stopped his car. He noticed that, for some reason, the road was stained in red color. It was blood.

When he looked towards the burning grove, he noticed that it was actually a bike that was burning.

A person with helmet was collapsed near the bike. That person had lost an arm. My friend quickly called an ambulance.

He returned home after that. When he parked his car, he found that the rear wheel was stained red. Why did it happen?

Next day, the accident-victim came to his house to thank him for saving his life.

So, he really lost his arm...That's sad.

"When I got into the accident, did you see any other car there? I lost my arm because a car ran over it"

That guy really thought he was going to get killed there.

Japanese Cryptic: The Date

 

Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story



We decided to meet for a date at Tokyo Tower at night.

But I got late as my car got stuck in the traffic.

When I reached the place 30-minutes late, she completely ignored me.

On the contrary, she started having a long phone conversation with someone.

When she was done with the call, she called a taxi and went away.

I know I was late, but she shouldn't have done this.  I can also get mad you know.

Without her I didn't have anything to do, so I decided to walk towards my house.

He apologized to her, and returned her umbrella.

In just a few moments, he found himself drenched because of the rain . He didn't mind and continued towards the house.

When he reached the house, he bid goodbye to her and entered the house for a shower.

After all, he was quite cold with the rain water and wanted to have a nice hot shower.

There was also an important thing he wanted to do, but he decided to wait till midnight.

When he got out of the shower, he dried his body and hair, dressed himself up, and exited the house.

It was still raining.

He opened up the umbrella and hasted to his house.

Japanese Cryptic: Ear Cleaning


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story


When I was little, I used to go to my neighbor's house to get my ears cleaned. The person living there was a woman who lived there all alone.

"I'll clean your ears, please come here." that's how she used to call me.

I would go to her, put my head and body in her lap, and then she would clean my ears. While cleaning she would say "Don't move."

To say clearly, I think she did a better work than my mother.

So nostalgic~

Japanese Urban Legend: Hanako-San



Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Urban Legend


The incident I'm about to narrate happened when I was in the second-year of my elementary-school.

During those days, the urban legends such as Hanako-san and Kokkuri-san were quite popular among the students. Even in our school we had a toilet where the infamous Hanako-san was said to appear.

Corridor in the evening


According to the legend, you have go to the girl's-toilet, which is adjacent to the incinerator, at around 5 PM, and then knock 3-times on the first door while saying "Hanako-san, let's play!", if there is no reply, then do the same to the second door, then third door , and lastly to the 4th door. When you are done, you will hear a reply " Yes." from the 4th door.

Hanako-san of the toilet


Nobody knows what happens if the door opens as there is no mention of it in the legend.


We were a group of 4 friends: I, B-kun, C-kun, and D-kun. During those days, we would go to the nearby shrine and do the Kokkuri-san ritual all day.

For the Hanako-san ritual, it was mandatory to go alone, so we weren't quite interested in testing it out. But one day, while we were having luch, B-kun said that he wanted to test the Hanako-san legend.

Well, a lot of students had already tested the legend but they didn't find anything supernatural, but that could be because none of them went alone.

I wasn't particularly interested in testing it out, but due to B-kun constant persuasion we decided to go with it. We settled for a Rock-paper-scissors game that would decide who'll test the urban legend.
Ultimately, B-kun ended up losing the game and had to go alone in the rumored toilet that day.

We didn't want to stay in school till 5 PM, so we told B-kun we would wait for him in the nearby park.

School in evening


So, as our school got over, all of us, except B-kun, went  to the nearby park to wait until B-kun returned.

As the clock struck 5 in the evening, we started getting excited for B-kun's return....we waited, and waited, and kept on waiting....the clock struck 5:30, then 6:30, but there was no sign of B-kun.

Now all of us were contemplating what might have happened with B-kun. It was already getting dark and so we decided we should return to our homes too. As for B-kun, we assumed he must have chickened-out and went the home early.

The next day we were told of B-kun's death.

It seems he died an unnatural death inside the rumored toilet.

After the incident, we stopped fooling around with the supernatural.


Now, 15 years have passed since that incident, and sometimes I feel I should meet with my old pals C-kun, and D-kun, and have a detailed chat with them abut the unfortunate event that took B-kun's life.

Japanese Cryptic: Late Night Jogging


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story


Recently, a lot of murders have happened in my neighborhood.

Despite knowing this, I went on for my late-night jogging.


After a few minutes of jogging, I came across someone standing near the streetlight.

Slowly and slowly, I moved towards the streetlight.

That person seems like a weirdo; didn't even move an inch.

Could it be...that person is the murderer?

Realizing that, I increased my pace.

That person shrieked after looking at me.

I didn't want to get involved with the person; so I ignored.

I passed the guy as I made a run for my life. 

After that, "I" wasn't seen by anyone.

 Yesterday, I played video-games till late night.

While I was playing the game, I saw the reflection of a face on the black loading screen.

When I looked around, I found that it was the poster behind me that was reflecting in the screen.

I shouldn't have put that Higurashi poster there.

Japanese Cryptic: Misfortunate John


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story

 

John, who had been through a tragedy, went to the Orphanage's Sensei* and asked.

John: "Sensei, why don't I have Mom or Dad?"

Sensei: "Well, about your Mom and Dad....When you were little, they were murdered by a Black man during a robbery."

John: "Why can't I walk? Why can't I see?"

Sensei: "Because that robber did bad things to you."

John developed hatred for that Black man.

He started hating all the Black people in this world.

He knew it was not possible, but he wanted to search the robber and kill him.

One day ,the Sensei said to John.

Sensei: "Be happy, John. We are going to get your eyes and legs cured."

John went through surgery that cured both his legs and eyes.

The next day after he had received surgery, he used his new legs to jump in front of a train.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Sensei: Sensei is an honorific used to address Teachers, Doctors, etc. Here I didn't translate it as I wanted to keep the meaning vague. 

I know this story is stereotyping black people, but I've translated the story as it is, so I apologize if  anyone finds it offensive.

Japanese Cryptic: Home Alone

 

Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story

 

I'm all alone at the house right now.

My parents have gone to attend a funeral.
My sister has gone to visit her friend.

I'm the only one in the house.

I turn on the TV after locking all the doors.

The all-star pro-baseball match is being broadcasted on TV.

Pacific-league has decided to field first.

I wonder who'll win...?

I think I heard someone's footsteps on the second floor.

I hear someone entering into the room above me.

Ah, it must be my sister. She came home early...

Well, I think her friend might be busy today.

I turn towards the TV.
Itoi of the Oryx hits the ball perfectly.

At that moment, I hear a laugh coming from above.

She looks in a good mood.

The match is becoming more intense.

Sawamura of the Giants is doing a good pitching.
This time I hear a angry shout coming from above.
Is she angry?

Her voice sounds messy. Maybe, she has cold? She should just got to sleep.

The match ends in a draw.
It was an interesting match.

Sawamura is declared as the MVP of the match.

My sister must be happy as she's a Giant's fan.

Ghost Hunt: Akumu No Sumu Ie Novel (Vol 1+2) PDF


Hi everyone, Shishou here.

I've compiled the English translation of Akumu No Sumu Ie Novel (by touchturnfly) into PDF format for offline reading. Please download the PDF using the links (google drive) below.

Download Akumu No Sumu Ie Volume 1

Download Akumu No Sumu Ie Volume 2

The translations were done by touchturnfly on spr.dreamwidth.org
I created a python script that scraped the Novel from spr.dreamwidth.org and converted it into PDF.

Download ePub version here : https://archive.org/details/AkumuNoSumuIeVol.1OnoFuyumi


Info on Akumu No Sumu Ie:  
Akumu no Sumu Ie - Ghost Hunt is based on a sequel novel of the 
original Ghost Hunt novel, set several months in the future. Both Akumu No Sumu Ie and Ghost Hunt
also have their respective manga versions.

English Title:  The House of Nightmares - Ghost Hunt

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So, as you guys know I'm a huge fan of horror stories, and because of that I've watched a lot of
horror anime and read a plenty of horror manga/ light novels. Out of all the horror manga, the 
Ghost Hunt series easily takes the top spot for its detailed and creepy plot. Ibitsu, Hideout, Hanako 
to guuwa no tera,youtsuya senpai no kaidan are also good horror manga.

Coming back to Ghost hunt, I've been wanting to read its sequel(manga version) for a long time but 
due to lack of translators, the manga took a long time to get translated--last chapter got released on 
24 Dec 16--so in the mean time I found spr.dreamwidth.org, which had the novel version of Akumu 
No Sumu Ie, and I found the novel version to be richer than the manga version. 
So a few days ago, when I was learning web scarping in python, I thought why not make a script 
that will help me read the Akumu No Sumu Ie novel offine. That's how I decided to convert the novel
into PDF.

Hope you guys will enjoy it.

Cryptic Story

 

A guy went to a convenience store late at night.

"This would do for today." He picked up a canned-beer.

As he was about to leave the store, he felt a hand on his shoulder.

"Hey, wait...!"

He heard a creepy voice from behind.

"Ahhhhh----!"

The guy shrugged-off the hand that grabbed him and ran quickly towards his house.

When he reached home, he calmed down and opened up the can's lid.

Everything went dark.

Japanese Horror: Please Tell Me The Way


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Short Story


sunset-creepy-woman


"Please tell me the way. "

A tall woman asked me this while I was returning home from work in the evening.
She wore tattered clothes, her legs with incredibly thin, and it looked like she was having difficulty maintaining her balance.

Though she was asking me, but her gaze was in the completely opposite direction.
"A...Umm...To where..?" I asked her.

She was kinda freaky so I wanted to go away from her quickly.

"X town. 1-19-4-201"

"............." I was creeped out by now.

That's the address to my apartment! She even knows my room number.

"I...I don't know" I replied.

I didn't want to associate myself with her any further, so I looked at her with an irritated face. She looked at me for a few seconds and then bowed before me.

"Thank...." She then walked away.

I looked at her until her figure disappeared completely.

I went to my apartment using a long route, just in case if she was following me.

I went to my room, confirmed it was still locked, unlocked it and entered inside.

"Please tell me the way." A voice could be heard from inside my room.

Japanese Horror: How To See Ghosts

 

 Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Ritual


 I don't have reikan*, but even then I can see ghosts.

So, I'm gonna tell you how you can see them even when you are not born with the ability.

It's quite simple. Never look straight at anything.
Instead, look at the corners of your field-of-vision.
You will see them in the opposite corner of field-of-vision.

In a room where no one is present except you, you will catch a glimpse of them from the corner of your eyes. You might think the thing you saw was just a figment of your imagination.

Listen to me. Those things are not your imagination.
They are ghosts; keep that in mind.
