For 400 years store in Japan has sold one product: candy bought by a ghost for her child 1

In the Higashiyama area of Kyoto City stands a candy shop which boasts a unique regular customer, the specter of a woman who comes for their candy. The legend began in 1599 and has been handed down from generation to generation to the present day. The shop, now called Minatoya Ghost Child Care Candy Main Office, only sells its legendary Ghost Child Care Candy…

The Legend of Ghost Child Care Candy

A long time ago there was a woman who visited this candy store every  night to buy candy. “It’s for my child,” she would tell them. On one  particularly quiet night, after buying the candy, the woman’s wooden  footsteps could be heard on the stone path outside. Then, suddenly, the  footsteps stopped just outside a nearby cemetery.

When the shopkeeper went to check it out, a baby’s cry could be heard  coming from the grave of a woman who died while pregnant.  After  digging up the grave, a living baby was found inside. It would seem that  the ghost woman was the child’s mother who fought against death to feed  him.

Hanging in the store is a sign that reads, “This story has been passed down from generation to generation as a symbol of how a mother’s love never ends, even after death.”
