Welcome to the Ghostlore of Hawaii:  Paranormal Paradise podcast!  I'm Uncle (Unko) Jared, thank you for joining me on the beach next to the bonfire! 
Episode 10 is a little different...  This is the first tale of the podcast that is based in Japan and originally told by Japanese horror writer Yoshida Yuuki(吉田悠軌).  I heard this story on the Kaidan Japanese Scary Stories podcast.  Host Riyoko translates Japanese horror stories into English with commentary by Co-host Cat.  This story by Yoshida was one of the most original tales I've heard in a while.  This is my interpretation of his story along with my own personal twist at the end.  If you want to listen to the version of the story my version is based off of, check out Riyoko and Cat on Kaidan Japanese Scary Stories.  This was the first story of their first episode.  
In the outro, I'll explain how this story connects to a few experiences I had as a child in Hawaii.  When I heard this tale, it instantly reminded me of memories I had at around 4 or 5 years old.  So get warm next to the fire, pop a green bottle, light up some finey-piney (pine as in Christmas tree), and let's get into this.....
