Visit Junji Ito’s Haunted House Before It Closes!

Are you a lover of the macabre? Can’t get enough of nightmare fuel? Enjoy losing sleep thanks to creepypasta? Then get over to Junji Ito’s Haunted House before the doors close forever!

The site is a special branch of Asahi Shimbun Publications’ website, celebrating the horror manga author’s 30th anniversary. If you’re not familiar with Junji Ito’s name, you may be familiar with his work nonetheless. He’s best known among anime and manga fans for his series Uzumaki (about a city overtaken by eldritch spirals) and Tomie (about a seemingly immortal young woman who ensnares men). But many may be familiar with The Enigma of Amigara Fault, a short work of Ito’s that became heavily circulated on Tumblr. In it, two tourists go to see a series of human-shaped holes exposed by an earthquake, and… well, if you’ve read it, you know the rest.
