The mountain pass onibi

On the way from Tokyo to Yamanashi there’s a road called “Wada Pass.”

It’s a famous mountain pass on the internet with rumours about ‘something appearing.’ My friend’s aunt had a strange experience there.

This aunt’s husband liked to go fishing and often went here and there.

The two of them were very friendly so she often went along with him.

They drove through Wada Pass several times.

“Wada Pass is kinda scary. Going from Tokyo to Yamanashi is okay, but the return leg is creepy. If the windows are open I always close them. It feels like something might come inside.”

On this particular day they went to Yamanashi to go fishing, and passed through Wada Pass late that night on their way home.

“Aahh, it’s the pass soon,” she thought, and when she looked outside she could see these blue lights shining in the trees.

“Are they fishermen?” she thought and turned her gaze away. But no matter how far the car drove, the lights were always in front of them.


It was a bit creepy, so she said to her husband, “Darling, are those torch lights? They keep following us.”

“I know,” he said. “But those things aren’t from humans.”

She then noticed the number of lights were increasing.

They were in front of and behind the car, like they were chasing it to surround it.

“Darling, go a bit faster.”

The aunt was spooked and closed her eyes so she wouldn’t have to see the blue lights.

It felt like forever before they got over the pass, she just kept praying to herself “faster, faster.”

Suddenly she felt the car going back downhill.

“We’ve passed it,” she thought and opened her eyes. Without a doubt they’d entered the Tokyo side of the mountain pass and were descending.

Fearfully she looked around but the lights were gone. She couldn’t see anything in the darkness of the trees.

Relieved, she noticed that she’d broken out in a cold sweat.

“It didn’t look like that often talked about plasma or anything. It seemed like it was alive…” she said, unsure of what they really were.
