Onryou Zashiki is a haunted house created by renowned horror producer Mr. Gomi Hirofumi, and is available at Tokyo Dome City Attractions. With “Onryo” meaning “revengeful spirit”, and “Zashiki” referring to a type of Japanese spirit that resides in Japanese homes, this new title overflows with Japanese horror culture.

Aside from classic Japanese ghosts, from where else do you draw inspiration?

“I take inspiration from everyday scenarios in daily life—for instance, by observing people on the train. I also look into folklore, including regional lore. There’s this obscure tradition called gokuraku-nawa (“rope of paradise”), which involves tying a corpse to prevent it from coming back to life.” said Mr.Gomi Hirofumi
