Haunted Tokyo Tours ~ the ghostly side of my favorite city

Finally!! Finally, just a few weeks ago, I got the chance to go on one of the Haunted Tokyo Tours! ☠(◔ฺo◔ฺ)☠ฺ

The tour that I went on was called the Blood of Samurai, and it was a lot of fun. I learned a lot about the 47 Ronin, the haunted history of downtown Tokyo, and the rather gruesome history behind the buildings behind me!

I want to go back again, soon. Very, very soon! I may even get involved and help out– with me and my fascination with ghost stories, I can imagine that now that I’ve gotten my hooks into this group, it will be hard to pry me away! ( ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄▽ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄)

I wish that I could print everything that I’ve learned, but I promised not to, so you’ll have to go on the tour to see for yourself! Their website is here: http://www.hauntedtokyotours.com/

I do however, have a lot of photographs! A lot lot! Check them out! 🙂 (The ones of me were taken my editor at Asahi Weekly, Morohiro Yoko ^.~)

↓ Does this tree have a sinister past?

↓ I was put in charge of the EMF meter (EMF=ElectroMagnetic Field. If you’ve ever watched Ghost Hunters, then you know that a high EMF field may mean that there are spooks about!)

↓ Yoko in the forefront there, listening to our tour guide, Lilly.

↓ What is the story behind this drain?

↓ Me, passing incense smoke over my head. Supposedly it brings good luck!

↓ Wonder what this is…

↓ Beautiful buildings in downtown Tokyo.

↓ Roppongi tower in the distance.

↓ Origami cranes bring good luck.

↓ If you put makeup on this buddha, then it will supposedly make you beautiful. Of course, I needed to participate!

↓ Me praying.

↓ Putting makeup on.

↓ Ring the bell? I wonder if the spirits are listening..!

What did you guys think? Are you interested in ghosts too? Everywhere has it’s own ghost story, and Tokyo is no exception!
