My favorite story from Saya in Underworld, a blog which translates Japanese pastas!

QUOTE
A few years ago I suddenly remembered about a village I once visited. It was a friendly little village I discovered by chance while travelling alone. I stayed there overnight and received a most heart-warming welcome. For some reason I don't know, I felt an urge to go there again.

I have good memory and was pretty confident that I remembered the way to get there. Once near the village I spotted a familiar sign post from my car; which, if my memory was right, should have read "___km to __(the village's name)." But strangely enough all there was on the sign were the words "The Big-Head O". I had a bad feeling when I saw it but still decided to drive on.

When I arrived at the village I found it deserted and all the houses were buried in weeds. I was deeply puzzled and was about to get off the car when I saw, about 20 metres ahead of me, something that looked like a human with a very large head looming out of the bushes.
What? What is that? While I was trying to understand what was going on I saw other similar creatures coming out all around me; moreover, they started to come after me moving in a grotesque manner, with their arms lying still against their sides and their large heads swinging side to side...

I was glad I hadn't left the car.
I let the car run backwards at lightning speed and joined the main road. Afterwards I checked my map but the location of the village I visited a few years ago and the place I went on that day were unmistakeably one and the same. However I don't think I will dare to go there ever again.

What's to get? Someone revisits a place and for some reason, just the one time, it's a decrepit old village full of disturbingly absurd-sounding freaks.

That kind of simplistic little unexplained pasta is my very favorite kind. It somehow feels more "realistic" for nothing dramatic to happen and no possible explanation to be offered.

My guess is he found an alien tour group that got lost.

This. Same reason old Inuit fairy tales and similar appeal to me - there is no point, weird shit just goes down in life sometimes.
