Tales of the Unusual (世にも奇妙な物語)

Summers in Japan are about ghost stories (however how mild)

世にも奇妙な物語 (Yonimo Kimyouna Monogatari) is a popular program hosted by Tamori. Aired only once or twice a year, each episode contains several 5-30 minute long drama like shows of unusual tales, comparable to America’s Twilight Zone. These funny, scary, or just simply odd, but definitely unusual tales will entertain you for sure, and make you want more.

Ep. 1 扉の先 (Tobira no Saki) Beyond the door

Ep 2. 過去からの日記 (Kako karano Nikki) A diary from the past
