Just east of the Kamo River in northern Kyoto lies a peaceful cemetery famous for underwater graves. Although most of the graves are preserved, time and natural elements eroded the land surrounding the pond located on the premises - causing the outer rim of gravestones to become submerged.
The cemetery is home to a legend regarding the wells at the entrance and second half of the graves. Rumours say that venturing around the cemetery is dangerous after dark due to a ghostly woman's hand extending from the mouth of the wells. If caught, she is said to drag you into the watery depths to drown.
