A small town in Japan has been invaded by zombies

A small town in Japan, Matsuzaki has been invaded by zombies

A small town in Shizuoka Prefecture, Matsuzaki, has been overrun by a horde of zombies.

A chilling YouTube video has emerged that shows a man, Kanemasu, recounting his encounter with zombies and ways to escape them. He says that the city is completely blocked by zombies and, at the end of the video, we see him succumbing to a bite on the shoulder and transforming himself.

In reality, it is a promotional campaign for the annual “zombie camp” organized by the city and its inhabitants, who embody the zombies.

This event dates from 2014 and the city hopes to attract many tourists with this video. The arrival of the latter would notably make it possible to curb the number of wild boars and deer. Indeed, the latter damage the leaves of mochi sakura, the main export product of the region.

Here is an excerpt from the video:
