Haunted Place : Amiidaji (Temple of Amida) in Dan-no-ura, in the Shimonoseki Strait

Details of Haunted Place :

The Legendary Haunting Of Amiidaji

The Temple of Amida, located in the Shimonoseki Strait, is a very important place for the Japanese, and it is also a very important place for anyone interested in one of the most legendary haunting locations in all of Japan. Built over 1,000 years ago in 998 AD, it is a world heritage site and a favorite of Japanese ghost hunters.

According to legend, the blind man, Hoshi Hoichi, was visited every night by a ghost of a dead samurai. Each night, Hoshi was made to play the Biwa but when the priest of the temple he painted the heart sutra over all of Hoshiís body, except for his ears. When the samurai returned, he only saw Hoshiís ears, so he took the ears of Hoshi.

To this day, individuals talk of hearing people walking, and seeing ghostly spirits moving throughout the temple. Whether these are the ghosts of the samurai or of Hoshi, no one knows. What is known is that this temple is a very sacred, but very haunted place for the people of Japan.

Like any Japanese ghost story, it has its fair share of intrigue and speculation of whether or not it is true.
