Horror Stories From The Jungle
According to Japanese mythology, the souls of the dead live in this forest. According to official records, about 105 dead bodies have been discovered here since 2003, most of them were badly rotten, some were eaten by animals. The religious people of Japan believe that due to the suicides in this forest, paranormal activities have started taking place here.
The biggest problem is that no modern technology like a compass, mobile phone, etc. works here. Strange directions are shown from the compass, due to which the directions look wrong as well as the signal does not come in the mobile phone as well. The reason for this is that the soil in this area contains Magnetic iron. Therefore, after reaching this forest, it is very difficult to come back.
