Night Hike to the Japan Haunted Bridge

Emily and I set out to visit the famous haunted bridge of Nippondaira under the pale glow of the autumn harvest moon. The lonely mountains are alive with the sounds of late summer insects as well as the din of fast cars and motorcycles which haunt the lonely highway like vehicular ghosts and who’s aggressive speed may be the source of the sad legend of the lost daughter and her grieving father. Join us as we pay our respects to the memory of this pair as well as to the souls of several lost souls departed at their own hands in the dark forest beyond the bridge’s rusted scaffolding.
