Episode 19: Japanese Urban Legends

A popup ad gone wrong. A fatal taxi ride. A host of vengeful ghosts. Present-day Japan has so many creepy-cool urban legends to offer, we just had to give you a round up before Halloween. We’ll teach you how to survive an encounter with these spirits—and how to scare your friends next time you find yourselves together on a dark and stormy night.

Myths discussed: The Red Room Curse, Aka Manto (Red Cape), The Fatal Fare, Kuchisake-onna (The Slit-Mouthed Woman), Teke Teke, and Kashima Reiko/Kamen Shinin Ma.
