Haunted Spots and Ghost Tour in Kyoto

Kyoto, Japan


7 to 8 hoursMobile & paper tickets accepted

Typically, ghosts, poltergeists, paranormal activity, and haunted tunnels are not the first thing that pops into people's minds when thinking about Japan. However, there is a hidden world in Kyoto for the daring and adventurous who would like to explore it. This tour has been carefully put together to give those who dare a unique chance to explore this creepy and little-known side of the city!

This is absolutely one of the most unique tours that Japan has to offer. The tour will begin once you have been picked up by your guide at an agreed upon location in Kyoto. Once you've gone over some brief instructions with the guide, the haunting adventure will commence!

The day will involve exploring the city's scariest spots, not just the touristy and well-known locations, but some actual truly scary spots where your guide will give you the history and story behind the place. There are some places you may opt out of entering as we did as we did the first time around.
