After months of simmering, Hitoshi has launched a blog called Gozumezu, Mysteries of Japan! His topics will include Japanese tales, folklore, mysteries and stories from his childhood.
The first story starts with a sad tale of a puppy’s tragic end. It ends on a happier tone with the significance of land shaped like a Y as a home for deceased dogs.
Visitors to Japan who have bought a shrine charm or omamori can relate to the next story. Have you ever wondered what’s inside a good luck charm? Hitoshi offers a teaser from childhood!
Check out Hitoshi’s stories and let him know what you think. We are curious if anyone can add something from their experiences in or outside Japan.
Do you have any childhood experiences that you wonder more about now?
