Bald Man

The Bald Man is a Japanese ghost who is known Kanbari-nyudo who is obsessed with spying on people when they are on the toilet or taking a shower.

Bald Man

At night, The Bald Man goes from house to house, peeking in bathroom windows and watching people while they are sitting on the toilet, taking a shower or getting undressed. He is an old, creepy-looking Japanese man and he shoves his head up against the window and drools at the mouth while he spies on you, hoping to catch you in the nude.

Years ago, there was an old man who was obsessed with seeing young girls naked. This creepy and depraved individual stalked the streets of his village at night, peeking in the windows, hoping to catch a glimpse of bare flesh. When his family found out about his disgusting behavior, they were ashamed and refused to have anything to do with him. To punish him, they shaved his head and banished him from the village.

The bald man built himself a hut in the mountains and went there to live as a hermit. He did his best to stop thinking about girls and nudity, but it was no use. His sinister urges were taking him over and he was powerless to resist. Finally, he gave in to his weird compulsions and, in the dead of night, he crept into the village and kidnapped a young girl. He brought her back to his hut where he kept her tied up and did horrible things to her.

One day, while the bald man was away, a thief came across his unguarded hut and decided to steal the man’s belongings. When he went inside, he found the young girl who had been kidnapped. Taking pity on the poor girl, he untied her. Just as he was helping her escape, the bald man returned. There was a big fight, but in the end, the thief managed to kill the bald man and brought the girl back to her grateful parents.

After that, the bald man returned as a ghost and began to appear outside the girl’s house. He wore a white kimono and peered through the windows at night, frightening everyone inside. The parents were worried the ghost would attempt to kidnap her again, so they hid their daughter. From that time on, the bald man’s ghost has been going from house to house, peeping in the windows of toilets, bathrooms and bedrooms, desperately looking for young girls…

They say that if you chant his name “Kanbari Nyudo” in the bathroom, his bald head will sometimes appear in the toilet bowl. If you chant, “Ganbari Nyudo, lesser cuckoo” in your bathroom on New Year’s Eve the bald man will not trouble you again.

In one story, a young girl was going to the bathroom, late one night. She stood up and reached for the toilet paper when she heard a strange chuckling noise behind her. She turned around and saw a face pressed up against the frosted glass of her bathroom window. She could make out the features of an old, bald man and he was peeping in on her and laughing quietly to himself. The other side of the window was covered in drool.

The young girl was petrified with terror and ran out of the bathroom with her pants around her ankles, screaming for her parents. When she told her father what she had seen, he flew into a rage and ran outside to confront the disgusting old man. However, when he got to the alley behind the house, he found it empty.

Then, the father looked at the bathroom window. There were iron bars across the window and there was a 10 cm gap between the bars and the frosted glass. There was no way anyone could have pressed their face up against the glass. A chill ran down his spine as he realized that whatever was peeping at his daughter while she was on the toilet, it could not have been human.

In another story, there was a young Japanese girl who was very embarrassed about her body. One evening, she was playing volleyball with a bunch of other girls. After the game, she had to take a shower, but she was too ashamed to let anyone else see her naked. Instead, she waited until all of the other girls had finished before going into the shower herself.

Alone in the dimly-lit shower room, she dropped her towel and turned on the shower. The water pressure seemed to be weak because all that came out was a slow dribble of water. She did her best to wash herself in the weak trickle of water. Half-way through her shower, she heard the faint sound of laughter.

“Hee hee hee”.

It sounded like an old man giggling and chuckling to himself. She looked around, but she couldn’t see anyone. She listened hard, searching for the source of the weird noise, but all she heard was silence.

The girl continued showering, until she heard the laughter again.

“Hee hee hee!”

This time, it was louder.

“Hey you creep!” she shouted. “Don’t think I can’t hear you!”

She felt so vulnerable standing naked in the shower with nothing to cover her that she decided to hurry up and finish quickly. Just as she was about to leave, she heard the laugh again.


This time, it was very loud. It seemed to be coming from above. She looked up at the shower head and saw something that made her run screaming from the room.

Instead of a shower head, it was an old man’s head, poking out of the wall above. He was staring down at her, grinning creepily and drooling all over her…

  2. xXHERRAARRXx says

    There’s nothing wrong with that man. Sarcasm. Lol everything is wrong with that man. There’s nothing right about that man, to be completely honest. I dunno wut im saying anymore.

  3. Username_Invalid says

    Saying ‘Kanbari Nyudo’ doesn’t have any results except for you waiting to catch a glimpse of his head. And it would be super creepy if you caught someone looking at you while you are in the bathroom. And I would say the story was weird.

  4. Ice Queen says

    Why does Japan have so many toilet ghost stories? At the first sentence I was like “This guy must be a weirdo”. And one more: Eeeeewwww!!!!


    Again i am glad this ghost focuses more on girl…Lucky to be boy. And also I am far away from japan..Still i am gonna try saying “Kanbari Nyudo”.. Let me to see it works or not.

  6. icewitch1992 says

    After reading this story there are 2 things i must say:
    1. Another toilet ghost? What is it with Japanese people and toilets? That’s like the 10th story about a toilet ghost that i read on here.
    2. He drooled on that girl’s body? That is gross!

  7. lovevamps7 says

    Lol! I mean salute to the bald man’s parents… Guyz couldn’t you just admit your baldy to some mental hospital?? It would have saved us from dealing with another Japanese Toilet Ghosts

  8. candiigirl says

  9. GoldenSnowmen says

  14. BloodymaryBloodymaryBloodymary says

  21. Paradise says

    Eww I have a window in the bathroom and he was drooling all over the girl!? WTF that’ gross!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Xx Death Bolt xX says

    Actually I don’t see anything wrong with the story, it only mentions something about a man spying on you in the bathroom or toilet and thats it.
    Its not like there is some explicit stuff or anything…
    Do not forget if you are 14 or under and you are on the internet google can do more harm to you than this story

  23. Carcass says

    @flamefletcher Scaryforkids is trying to make it for kids . 15+? No :D This isn’t 15+ . This is a story for 9-13 ,that practically makes up the whole site. 9,10,11,12,& 13. Sometimes 14,15,16,17 max. Calm down lol xD

  24. KillerShadowXXXxx says

  25. Horrorfanforever says

    @The_Yellow_Dash what kind of games are you talking about? If the virtual kind then I am something of a gamer. Otherwise I’m just a jumpy martial artist.

  26. Xx_layla_xX12 says

    12th paragraph spell fail : “Shem” instead of “she”

    Um that’s gross. You DO know that like, 9 year olds get on this site, right?

  27. Horrorfanforever says

    EWWW! THAT’S SO CREEPY! That guy better hope he never crosses me. I flipped my cousin for hugging me from behind and startling me. I might have to do something more drastic to a perverted old man ghost. Time to practice my Falcon punch I guess.
