Horror Story Toilet Paper

Horror story fan?

Maybe a Koji Suzuki fan?

Or maybe you just like reading in the toilet?

Then perhaps you should check out Hayashi Paper‘s (Shizuoka Prefecture) newest product, the World’s Scariest Toilet Paper.

Each roll of toilet paper carries a horror story called “drop,” penned by Japanese famed horror story writer, Koji Suzuki (鈴木光司).  Clocking in at about 2,000 characters long, or about 86 cm worth of toilet paper, the story seems a bit short, but that’s also apparently one of it’s selling points.  I guess if these things were too long, you might end up going through an entire roll just to read the whole story.  Environmentally, that might be deplorable, but couldn’t that lead to more sales?

The horror story toilet paper is set to go on sale starting June 6th and will be available for purchase online and from major retailers.  One roll will cost 210 yen (or roughly $2).
