Listen to tales of ghosts and goblins, blood lust and revenge. Our walking tours are led by experienced escorts in English, and are part legend, part art/architecture, and part spooky fun! Custom tours available for your group. Come find out why Tokyo is the most haunted city in the world!

Lily is a fab tour guide and really makes the trip! We had a great time on this tour - winding down a few street's we didn't know existed and its a pretty informative tour if you are into Japanese ghosts/horror! Would recommend to all.
