According to the British newspaper, The Guardian, the Japanese legend says that this volcanic rock harbored the “evil spirit” of a demon in the form of a beautiful woman. It is said that she was part of a conspiracy hatched by a feudal warlord to assassinate Emperor Toba, who ruled the Asian country between 1107 and 1123.
And the rock was split in two by rain, while some in Japan believe that death awaits anyone who tries to approach this “disappointed” stone.
This rock is located in Toshiki Prefecture, close to the capital, Tokyo, amid expectations that it may have been fractured during the past few days.
Since the rock has a volcanic character, some users of social platforms have warned that it contains toxic gases.
People who visited the place last weekend said they were surprised by the splitting of the rock, which has long been surrounded by legend and considered an “imminent danger”.
Some visitors expressed real fear of approaching the rock, thinking that they might be harmed by the “evil spirit” that is said to be present at the site.
Earlier, press reports had talked about the beginning of cracking and cracking in the rock, many years ago, then the rain came this winter, to make it split, amid the panic and curiosity of those who believe in the legend.
