There are two Japanese haunted houses in the Toshimaen amusement park located in Tokyo. One of them is called "obake-yashiki,” which means haunted house in Japanese. This is just like any haunted house attraction overseas, where you simply walk through the. The other one is called “Mystery Zone” where visitors ride on a 2-seated car through the attraction, similar to the haunted mansion ride in Disneyland.
In the haunted house attraction, the only way to escape is to keep moving forward, even though the guest feel fear and want to run away immediately. In this particular haunted house, there is a room where countless arms try to grab at the unlucky guests. Other frightening sights include an area with a nails sticking out of it, a stairs with many candles, a well where someone singing can be heard from inside, an area with a doll with long hair that screams as people pass her by, a scaffold with human heads on it, and the eyeballs of those heads move! At the end of the attraction, a mysterious wind can be felt blowing from somewhere. Near the exit of the haunted house, there is even a chance to witness some traditional Japanese monsters.
The Mystery Zone, is more suitable for people who tend to scare easily, since you can make it through the whole attraction without opening your eyes This Mystery Zone is set in Japan during the late 1800’s, so it has a very Japanese atmosphere. There is a Shinto shrine, a typical traditional Japanese-style house, and so on. There is also a doll hanging as if it had committed suicide, and many other exhibitions. Music plays in the background depending on the scene to further enhance the scare factor. Mystery Zone is one of the most popular rides in the Toshimaen amusement park, and there are times where waiting times for this attraction can exceed 60 minutes during major holidays.
There are rumours that some real ghosts have been witnessed in these two attractions, as well as in the “Mirror House.” Mirror House has over 140 mirrors forming a maze of optical illusions.
Beware when you enter these three attractions, because you never know where the “ghosts” you meet here are just part of the attraction…or the real deal.
