What is 心霊スポット?

Do you believe in ghosts?
Some say yes, some say no. And I don’t intend to force you to believe in them.

But it is true that there are many locations where many people reported that he/she witnessed ghosts.
And many of these places have “stories” back in the history.
maybe ex prison, ex graveyard, ex battle field and so on.

These places are called “心霊スポット” in Japanese, which means “ghost spot”.
In short, young people call them “心スポ”.

Some of them maybe just fakes or rumors.
But, from my point of view, it seems that some of them are really horrible.
Young people such as high school students or university students often visit there for fun.
Many of these adventures end up with “Nothing happened”
But some people report that it was really scary or something really happened.
I wannaⅠ try 心霊スポット...Actually I feel so scary though...

I really wanna visit 心スポ~~
But actually, in many cases, it is illegal to step into 心霊スポット because these are likely somebody’s properties. You might be punished as trespassing.
So if you intend to go to 心霊スポット, you have to make sure if it is really okay to visit not.

Top 6 horrible 心霊スポット in Japan.

No.6 雄別炭鉱 / Yubetsu coal mine

This place is just a barren wasteland now.
But this place used to be a big coal mine long time ago. But, at the same time, there were bad rumor that the owner of Yubetsu coal mine brought many young people as a compensation for their debt and force them to overwork. And moreover they packed many labors in a small room far going over room’s capacity.
And labors died one by one.
It is said their grudge still stays there.

No.1 慰霊の森 / Irei no mori Forest

July 30th 1971, the biggest airbourne accident occured in Japan.
All Nippon Airways (ANA) collided with Self Defence Force’s plane in the air and went out of control and started to fall toward the ground at faster than speed of sound.
After that JAL plane dismantled in the air and crashed onto the surface of this mountain.
Entire 162 guests and crews were dead.

And this mountain is said to be the most horrible 心霊スポット in Japan.
BUT, this place must be tranquil. It is simply wrong to visit here for fun.
Nobody in the plane expected to die here. It is such a tragedy.
