While the details for the 2016 haunted house attraction are due to be released in July, it will be a challenge to beat the scares created by 2015's Cursed Lullaby haunted house.
Summer Haunted House, 2015: the Cursed Lullaby (呪いの子守唄)
A sickly wife moved into her mother-in-law's home. The mother-in-law was a strict, unsympathetic woman who treated the wife with disdain due to her sickly body.
When the wife bore a baby boy, the mother-in-law became more annoyed and spiteful as the wife sang a lullaby to calm the baby's constant crying.
As time wore on, the wife's sickness worsened until she was unable to care for her son.
After the mother-in-law took on the role of carer for the baby boy, the wife passed away. The wife's body disappeared soon after.
Upon being questioned, the mother-in-law admitted to the husband that she had poisoned the wife out of vindictiveness for having to constantly listen to the lullaby, but did not mean to kill her.
SPOILER (the text is the same colour as the background - highlight to read)
The mother-in-law hid the wife's body within a closet, and then covered the closet door with plaster to make it seem like a wall. In the final room, the one member leans forward to listen to the pipes - only for the closest wall to drop down, revealing the dead wife.
Hiding from Japanese Ghosts
Ghost stories are the least frightening thing about Japan when facing culture clashes, mystery food, language barriers, and - scariest of all - marriage.
