Kohada Koheiji

Beginning our occasional Halloween posts, which will gear up in intensity as we near Halloween!

Based on a real event, the cuckold and murder victim Kohada Koheiji returns from the dead to torment his cheating wife and lover. Here he grins over the top of the mosquito netting that surrounds the bed of his killers.
