Toilet paper to scare the wits out of Japanese

IN a country where ghosts are traditionally believed to hide in the toilet, a Japanese company is advertising a new literary experience - a horror story printed on toilet paper.

Each roll carries several copies of a new nine-chapter novella written by Koji Suzuki, the Japanese author of the horror story "Ring," which has been made into movies in Japan, Hollywood and South Korea.

"Drop,? set in a public restroom, takes up about 90 centimeters of a roll and can be read in just a few minutes, according to the manufacturer Hayashi Paper.

The firm promotes the paper, which will sell for 210 yen (US$2.20) a roll, as ?¨a horror experience in the toilet.?

Toilets in Japan were traditionally tucked away in a dark corner of the house due to religious beliefs.
