亡魂船dead spirit's boat

亡魂船dead spirit's boat,japan

This is a fantom ship that infested in the vicinity of Izu islands. It is called a boat that the person who died in the sea takes, and is assumed that the death is called by no good luck. It is assumed that the door of the hell (heaven) opens in the Buddhism on a specific day of one year, and the dead visit their old home. In a lot of fisherman towns, the legend that the dead return from the sea on the midnight of the day is passed on.
