(Hotel pt 28) Here's how to cool off

One of the things we used to do, as children growing up in Japan during the hot humid summer night, was to tell a scary and chilling stories to "cool off." Of course, it doesn't literally cool us off, but it was a thing to do especially in the get-together setting like camping.

The basic premise of the film "Ring" or "Ringu" where the ghost with "unfinished business" comes back to haunt the family or two is nothing new. As a matter of fact, the most famous ghost story told in Japan called "Yotsuya Kaidan" was written back in 1825. Here's more about it if you are interested. I'm still traumatized by watching this film as a child that I don't even want to write about it :)

The last test podcast before the official one should be up very soon along with the giant finale of the Hotel Man Series. Stay tuned.

Thank you, Alex and Mrs. ShibataBread
