This particular setting is in an abandoned psych ward. They they call to mind the tortured psyches that once inhabited these now-abandoned halls.

PENPAL BY DATHAN AUERBACH (Let me just tell you this guy started out as a reddit user writing online horror stories and now he has a novel out, I’ve linked you to the terrifying story that got him famous, you can learn more about his novel here)
Okay that’s all I got for now. This post took me 3 years to make. Feel free to add on to this list.
I don’t even live in Japan but I’m a little freaked out right now.
I didn’t compile this list, I got it from here
Here’s the Tomino’s Hell poem for those of you brave enough to read it out loud.
Also the original Cow’s Head story, which supposedly makes you die from fright is said to have no known copies around.
Teke teke will sometimes be sitting in a window, but once she catches you staring, she will jump out and chase you. Run as fast as you can.
Kuchisake Onna is a dead-end if you keep saying yes. When she asks you if she is pretty, you can say “You’re average,” “You’re so-so,” or “Am I pretty?” And escape when she is confused.
Teke teke makes my heart race. I dunno, just imagine it slowly crawling towards you in the middle of the night. Yikes.
