36: I live alone, and when I return to my family home now it’s so big that it scares me.

39: My neighbour got in trouble with the yakuza or something once and their door got kicked in. That day terrified me.

148: >>41 That honestly shocked me. I’ve always left it open since then.

60: When the person next door suddenly screams.

69: A strange looked through my window once. I haven’t been able to open the curtain since then.

93: When I forgot to put my cigarette out and my veranda went up in flames.

108: My intercom rang once and I yelled “Yes~” and got up to answer the door, but on the way the door opened by itself. It scared the crap out of me. I’ve been careful to make sure it’s always locked since then.

112: I was drunk and fell asleep without locking the door and some old guy came in. He apparently had the wrong room, and I’ve done the same thing myself before when drunk so I could hardly complain.

121: Late one night I was smoking on the veranda when I locked eyes with a woman pushing a pram. What on earth was she doing with a pram that late at night?

140: Someone once started through the post slot in my door for five minutes straight.

141: I live on the first floor and one morning I woke up to a woman on my veranda looking in. Apparently she was stalking the person who lived there before me… My heart stopped beating for a bit there.

541: >>213 LOL.

266: My friend sent me their address by GPS once and it led me to a graveyard.

308: Seems you guys in Tokyo experience quite a few different things, huh?

364: A while back there was this crazy woman who rattled doorknobs trying to get into houses. If she found one open she took it as a message from god that she was supposed to kill whoever was inside. Apparently she stabbed someone to death, so you really should always make sure you lock your door.
