We have an incredible story for you today. It might be a bit different from anything you have heard before, but I urge you to give it a chance. It is called The Story of Mimi Nashi Hoichi and was written by Lafcadio Hearn. It is listed as a ghost story, but in truth, it is a Japanese Legend set to modern language. It was taken from Hearn’s book called, Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things.
