This Ancient Stone In Japan Said To Contain A "Demon" Has Cracked Open

We can all agree that 2022 isn't off to a better start than what we had in 2020 or 2021, but things might have got even worse because an ancient stone in Japan said to contain a "demon" just cracked open this week.

According to Japanese legend, the volcanic rock, otherwise known as "Sessho-seki" was said to be the prison for an evil demon named Tamomo-No-Mae or the "Nine-Tailed Fox" for over 1,000 years and that if anyone touched the rock that they would have an untimely fate.

The rock is also a tourist attraction near Tokyo, but locals say the rock started cracking a couple of years ago and that rainwater may have gotten inside and caused it to split open.

Officials are trying to figure out a plan to repair the stone, but finding workers may be harder than usual and I have a feeling people are going to be extra cautious for the next few weeks in the area!
