Kowabana: ‘True’ Japanese scary stories from around the internet is a fortnightly Japanese horror podcast specialising in Japanese creepypastas, urban legends, and other ‘true’ scary stories. All stories are translated and narrated by me, Tara A. Devlin. You can follow my YouTube channel to automatically get episodes in your subscriptions each week and to watch the episodes in full motion glory, or you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.

It would also greatly help myself and the podcast out if you could leave a review on iTunes, so if you could take just a moment to leave a few comments I’d greatly appreciate it! When you click “View in iTunes” it will take you to the podcast homepage where you can leave a review. It will help the show to grow so I can continue to provide you with better and more quality content!

      The podcast features ‘true’ scary stories written anonymously by Japanese people. I find them and translate them and narrate them for the podcast 🙂
