This episode embodies the phrase “uncanny.” There are a few supernatural oddities, but Thersa Matsuura shares a horrifying personal story that’s not exactly supernatural but scary in a “oh my god, I’m sorry that happened” kind of way.
Stories about canine loyalty are fairly common at this point, so hearing a story about how loyal cats can be is a nice change of pace. I’m going to add this to my list of places to visit in Japan.
“Breaking supernatural news” is not a phrase I was expecting to hear today, but last week a stone that was said to hold a nine-tailed fox spirit was split in half. Uncanny Japan does an amazing job of teaching the history and myth behind this stone and the area surrounding it. Also that festival sounds like a blast and I want to find the pictures that were posted of it.
Uncanny Japan has become one of my favorite podcasts to listen to. The podcast retells folk tales from Japan and while the episodes can be short, I find their content to be a wonderful experience to listen to. If you have some time in your day, give this episode a listen!
