Top 10 Japanese Urban Legends

The Top Ten
1 Kuchisake Onna

How spooky is that? A woman with a gash on her mouth asking if she's pretty and carrying a large pair of scissors. Depending on your answer she's either use her scissors to make you just like her or she'll kill you right on the spot.

I should've drawn the mouth on when I had a sort of surgical mask on after a doctors appointment

Man, this sounds horrible, I would hate to be killed with scissors. Do these legends exist?

I know a character from naruto who is based off her

2 Teke Teke

She uses a saw or a scythe to cut anyone who sees her in half. When you hear this sound, you better run.

Why do I want to see a person run like teke teke does?

Another reason I'll never visit Japan

The scariest

3 Aka Manto

How are there so many versions already there's like paper, cloaks, vests, so many of them. I would like to try it as I know my way out of it and because it seems fun.

His name literally means "red cape". You are in a bathroom in Japan, he will ask you if you want red paper or blue paper. If you pick red you are butchered to death and covered in blood. If you pick blue you are strangled until you turn blue. Either way, you're going to die. If you ask for paper of a different color, you are dragged into the netherworld. The only way to survive is not to answer his question.

I’d oprobably be dumb and ask why a guy was in the kadies room

red or blue? what do you choose?

4 Red Room

"Do you like the red room" does anybody else kinda want to see this pop-up just because their curios.

5 Cow Head

Pronounced Gozu in Japanese, the story is said to be so scary that many people have have read it or heard it have died.

I like hearing about this story but I want to know the actual story that drives people mad.

The mask gives scarier than Saw

6 Kokkuri-san

I need to play this but I don't think people will want to play it with me

7 Okiku Doll

A 17 year old boy bought the doll for his 2 year old sister. She loved the doll so much that she played with it all the time. However, she died a year later. It's said that her soul resides inside the doll, for it's hair is constantly growing. Tests were even run on some of the hair at one point. The results showed that the hair was human.

I want to see it

8 Human Pillars

I immediately thought of the pillar men-

9 Joro-Gumo

She has spider-like features. She lures victims with the sound of an instrument, then traps them in a silk web so she can devour them for her next meal.

The name literally means "whore spider". She attracts victims with the sound of an instrument and them traps them in a silk web so she can devour them for her next meal. Terrifying!

10 Nure Onna

Half women, half snake creatures, they love the taste of your blood. Beware!

The Contenders
11 Kashima Reiko
12 Kekkai
13 Hanako-San

I would honestly play this just because it sounds so interesting and I'm curios of what would happen.

I’d try it if I was ever in Japan

who wants to play this with me

14 Tomino's Hell

If you don't know what that is, it's basically a cursed poem that you should never read out loud. One of my favorite urban legends.-Vestalis

15 Hachisakusama

The eight-foot tall woman who takes children. The stories about it are really cool and so are all the videos about it

16 Daruma-san

I love this game, you just sit in the bathroom and say "daruma-san fell down" over and over well washing your hair at night. Just don't open your eyes during the game.

17 Futakuchi Onna

This is a woman with two mouths. A normal one on her face and one on the back of her head. Creepy!

Their is something like this in a movie called miss perrigrens home for peculiar children

18 Kisaragi Station
19 Kagome Kagome

Okay, true story(but feel free to dislike this and reply saying It's fake). So me and my cousins are waiting for my mom and aunt who were out grocery shopping. So one of my cousins brought up the idea to listen to the Kagome Kagome song used for the kids' game. At first, I wasn't spooked and was like "No big deal, It's just a creepier Japanese version of Ring Around a Rosie". Until the next day, the cousin who told me to play Kagome Kagome told me that last night, a ghost came to her and sang the Kagome Kagome song! Ever since that day, I was terrified! Yikes!

20 Hikiko-san

I seriously feel bad for Hikko-san going through what she had to go through. But what way was her actual death suicide or saving a kitten?

21 Baku

This is a demon that feeds on your nightmares. It's often depicted as a Tapir-like creature.
