Creepy shrine video has Japanese Internet wondering where it is, if it leads to alternate world

It even feels like it has its own “Do not enter here” warning sign..

Similar to old churches and cathedrals, Shinto shrines can take on a foreboding under certain conditions. Maybe it has something to do with the symbols of divinity reminding us fragile humans of our helplessness and inability to fully understand the mysteries of the universe, but sometimes the vibe of shrines is less “Come on in and commune with our local deity” and more “Stay out if you want to stay in your the world.”

Here with a prime example is a Japanese Twitter user @JIYUKENKYU_jpwho recently shared this video/photo combo.

“I found this isekai entrance in the middle of the night. [alternate world]complete with warning alarm,” @JIYUKENKYU_jp tweets.

Okay, so the sound is actually coming from the level crossing, as a warning that the crossing guards are still down after the train passes. But hearing them bounce off into the night as the flashing red lights bounce off the shrine’s torii gate is definitely unsettling. things don’t get any less scary when @JIYUKENKYU_jp takes a few steps towards the shrine entrance and everything is suddenly plunged into silent darkness.

Online commenters reacted to the creepiness like this:

“If I had walked around, I don’t think I would have fallen asleep. I’d be up all night with that sound ringing in my head.”
“It’s like…you can feel that there must be something alive.
“Last save point before the boss battle, right?”
“I’ll have to buy some talismans to ward off evil.
“Ah, that’s why we hear so much about alternate worlds these days.
“I’m not sure there’s any guarantee you’ll ever be able to return to our world if you enter.

@JIYUKENKYU_jp doesn’t say where he took the video/photo but some commenters think he did Otori Shrine in Shiraoka, Saitama Prefecture. It’s hard to say for sure, but if nothing else, the afternoon Google Streetview for Otori Shrine also looks like an isekai gateway, but with a more cheerful undertone.

Meanwhile, if you’d understandably prefer to resist such a potentially world-changing adventure, @JIYUKENKYU_jp regularly posts pictures of her forays into shrines and ruins.

Fortunately, he hasn’t been dragged into any isekai yet, but if he ever stops posting, this will probably be the reason.
