Ive been doing research on a character from Fatal Frame that i planned to dressed as for Halloween.. I came across the Himuro mansion where the game Fatal Frame is based on. The Himuro Mansion is located outside of Tokyo, Japan. Thought to be real amongst many, the Himuro Mansion has never been found and revealed to the world (however, many people claimed to have been to it). Though mostly myths and folklore, there are chilling stories associated with it. Makoto Shibata, Chief Producer of Fatal Frame had this to say:
"In an area outside Tokyo, there lies a mansion in which it’s said seven people were murdered in a grisly manner. On the same property, there lie three detached residences that surround the mansion, all of which are rumored to have ties to the mansion’s troubled past. It’s said there is an underground network of tunnels that lay beneath the premises, but nobody knows who made these tunnels or what purpose they served. Many inexplicable phenomenons have been reported occurring on the property. Bloody hand prints have been found splattered all over the walls. Spirits have been spotted on the premises… even in broad daylight. A narrow stairway leads to an attic where a spirit-sealed talisman is rumored to be locked away. Men have sought this talisman, only to be found later with their bodies broken and rope marks around their wrists. There’s a crumbling old statue of a woman in a kimono, but its head is missing. If you take a photo of a certain window, a young girl can be seen in the developed picture. These incidents have provoked fear in the people of Tokyo, and many believe that those who live near this area will become cursed. The deaths of those seven people are unexplained to this day."

Now the main question that has been on everyone's mind is that, did this gruesome murder occur in this mansion? Or it is just some story made up by people?
