Did you know?: Kimodameshi - Japanese spooky summer
In mid-summer, similar to the U.S., temporary haunted houses pop up in amusement parks or shopping malls as seasonal attractions. Horror movies and reports of haunted locations are televised, while popular kimodameshi (literally, to test your courage through a scary route) games are enjoyed in schools and local communities, as the goosebumps cool you down with fear and terror.
