The program is a haunted house with the greatest plot in the prefecture. Since the age limit is applied, a more mature presentation allows visitors to experience  spine tingling fear. It is a haunted house with images and sounds presented for the first time in Okinawa.

The story centers on a theme from a few decades ago, several years before Okinawa was returned to Japan from the United States, when one girl lived with her mother. Her name was Sachiko, and she was always waiting for her mother’s return dribbling a “temari” ball, a handmade highly decorated ball that traditionally was made of pieced used kimonos, and even now often made by mothers to their children.

“Where does your mother go? To cut grass for a baby goat. The delicious grass for a baby goat is fresh weatherglass on the field. Where does your mother go? To cut grass for a cow. The delicious grass for a cow is young vine on the field.” Sachiko is looking for her temari ball. Please offer temari ball in this hounted house to Sachiko. Sachiko is looking at you…”
