“Have you heard of Inunaki village? It's a cursed village that doesn't appear on any map. If you dare to go there, you'll never make it out alive!”

Legend has it that on the other side of the real-world location of Inunaki Tunnel in Kyushu lies the most evil haunted spot in Japan—a village where the law doesn't apply, from which no one who enters ever comes back. Is Inunaki village an urban myth? Or... is it real?

When her younger brother goes missing, Kaede has no choice but to put her faith in the myth. But while searching for him at the old Inunaki tunnel, she stumbles on a web of terror that defies belief.

Six different people each have their own reasons for daring to set foot in Inunaki village. But there are some places you just shouldn't go, when the horrors of Inunaki village won't rest...
