Two Japanese Games For Thrill Seekers
many simple games for those thrill seekers who have nothing to do after
checking in a hotel, or camping out in the wilderness after dark, or those who
want to find out the existence of the other side. For these folks, I have two
simple Japanese games to offer:
The Purple Mirror (紫镜)
mirror game is very popular amongst the younger Japanese generations. To play
this game, a player would need a mirror, slightly large enough to reflect
his/her face and background. What this person needs to do is to choose his/her
location: in front of a grave, in an abandoned building or a hotel room. Of
course, one can choose to play this game in his/her house too… but I doubt the
person can see anything unusual in his/her own house. Then and again, I wonder…
if one indeed sees a ghost in the house; what would he/she do? Hahaha…
place and time are right, the player needs only hold up the mirror and look
into it; then recites: “papurumira’ (purple mirror) 10 times. After that,
he/she needs to observe the reflection and its surroundings. After a while some
kind of apparition: white fog, black shadow etc. may be observed.
The “Is There Anyone There?” Game (有人在吗？)
This is a
very simple game. It can be played in a toilet, hotel and haunted place, in
front of a grave or in the wilderness. But if you try it at home, your mom or
dad would probably say: “Yes. Are you feeling okay?”
sure you are alone in a room/toilet, start asking: “Dare ka anata?” seven times
and then wait for signs. The signs are: a gust of wind, a change in temperature,
or some mysterious sound etc.
don’t be surprised to hear someone answered: “Yes. I am in the next toilet
compartment!” if you shouted the words a little too loudly in a public toilet.
point, you may want to ask: “How to perceive the presence of ghost visually?”
ghosts don’t necessary appear in front of a person purposely, but they may inadvertently
show themselves as a flash of white fog at the corner of our eyes. So, without
resort to modern electronic gadgets, if you see a flash of white light appeared
at the corner of your sight; then there is a spirit present. I even observed
the white face of a boy appeared at the corner of my left eye once when I was
playing one of the above games!
