With New Year’s just around the corner, this week’s episode focuses on creepy New Year’s tales from Japan! New Year’s is one of the biggest and most important holidays in Japan, and there are a lot of customs and traditions surrounding it. The stories in this episode feature a young woman with a strange family custom, where she can’t look at her reflection at midnight. Another visits a temple only to find she can no longer drink alcohol. A group of friends reunite for the new year and visit a haunted tunnel, but something goes terribly wrong. Plus, in an exclusive story you’ll only find here, a young man has a fight with his father on New Year’s and goes to spend the night in a hotel, but there’s something not quite right with his room.
