Unsolved mysteries: Japanese fans of the occult are engaged in a never-ending search
Whether it’s tales of hauntings, spirits or paranormal phenomena, Yuki Yoshida loves a good scare.

The 37-year-old writer known as the “occult detective” is on the lookout for the supernatural. From ghost sightings and bizarre religious rituals to unidentified flying objects, he has spent over a decade investigating urban legends and reporting his findings in books and magazines.

He has no extrasensory powers, however, and maintains a level of skepticism when researching the otherworldly. He is also unfazed by most spooky tales that follow a conventional format.

Once in a blue moon, however, even a thick-skinned collector of the macabre such as Yoshida comes across accounts that give him the shivers.

“Rather than any single episode, it’s when I stumble upon a recurring pattern in the stories I gather from different people,” Yoshida says.
