Japanese Urban Legends

Betobeto-san

Betobeto-san is a popular Japanese ghost who makes the sound of footsteps following you when you are walking alone at night.

Betobeto-san

Have you ever had the feeling that someone was following you? Have you heard the sound of footsteps creeping up close behind you? If so, it was probably Betobeto-san. He is an invisible ghost who makes the sound of footsteps following you down a lonely street at night…

Beto… Beto… Beto… Beto…

If you hear him, you should politely say, “Betobeto-san, osakini okoshi” which means “Betobeto-san, please pass in front”.

In Japan, he is one of the most popular ghosts because he is not dangerous and girls think he is cute. In Sakaiminato, there is a statue of Betobeto-san and people leave coins in his mouth for good luck.

    AND YO! GUYS! THAT’S HIGHLY STEREOTYPICAL TO WOMEN!!! THOUGH THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE…. EH. You know what? I don’t feel like doing this. I’m not a feminist… just…. whatever.

  • “…and girls think he is cute.”
    YES! I’m a girl and I think he is cute! I WOULD HAVE PROBABLY HUGGED HIM!

  • nuh uh i dont think a big squidgy pink thing with an enormous grin across it’s face filled with pearly white teeth is ‘cute’

  • AWESOME!!!!!
    That ghost is so cool.
    And cute cause he is like a big ball XD

    But still…..
    Footsteps at night is the most scary thing that seems to happen to u.

  • purplegirl the horror fan is right and what if u don’t say it and if u don’t sY it properly

  • FIRST! So wait… beto-san is only doing that to freak you out? and he’s not harmless?!? good. but if he’s invisible, how’d they make a statue of him? and how can girls think he’s cute if you CAN’T EVEN FREAKIN SEE HIM ??? This is mind boggling.
