Creepy footage of what many claim is the ghost of a child has been shared online and has created great excitement in ghost hunting circles.
Since being uploaded, the scary video has been viewed more than 600,000 times.
A figure appears in the room, moving across the screen and then travelling back in the opposite direction again.
The owner of the house located in rural Japan, Mr Masahiro, is reported to be 'delighted' with the super-natural sighting.
A popular legend in Japan says that a child ghost or 'zashikiwarashi' will bring good luck to all who see it.
A zashikiwarashi is usually aged between six and nine years and bring good fortune as well as causing a little mischief.
Masahiro said he captured the ghostly image on camera and captioned his post :
“Succeeded in recording a zashikiwarashi on video!
"Those of you who see this will be lucky... maybe."
