Japanese rock said to contain a demon from centuries ago has been discovered mysteriously split in half
According to the mythology surrounding the Sessho-seki, or killing stone, the object contains the transformed corpse of Tamamo-no-Mae, a beautiful woman who had been part of a secret plot hatched by a feudal warlord to kill Emperor Toba, who reigned from 1107-1123.
According to Japanese mythology, the stone is believed to have hosted an evil spirit and be so powerful that it kills anyone who comes in contact with it
After the stone's split in two on March 5th, Japanese locals and online users have raised concerns of the stone continually spewing out poisonous gas.
After news of the stone breaking made light, people have taken to social media to share their concerns and theories.
Local and national government officials will meet to discuss the stone’s fate, according to the Shimotsuke Shimbun. The newspaper quoted a Nasu tourism official as saying he would like to see the Sessho-seki restored to its original form – presumably with its demonic inhabitant sealed within.
