Story What happens if you received a letter from a man who decided to live in a chair he created, or if you find out you are living among ghosts without knowing it!? In Japan, summer is the time to cerebrate Obon (day of dead) and it is also time for telling scary stories. In Ghostly Japan-Stories of Strange Things will take you to a scary and strange trip all the way to Japan.
*About the age restriction: Children of any age may attend the performance with their
guardian’s discretion. Children without a guardian will not be admitted.
