Sadako's Phone Number

090-4444-4444

The story goes:
This number is known as "Sadako's Number" and when you dial it you are supposed to be able to hear some strange, creepy noise, like "bwooo."  


They say that the person who calls this number will meet some kind of accident within a week.

The number will probably only work in Japan, but you can try calling it by using Japanese country code +81.
:D

neu said...

The truly scary part is how much you'll be charged for making international calls! D:

Luna said...

Hi Saya,

I had heard such a story too, like how people scribbled phone numbers on the walls and there was this person who actually called and heard all these strange noises.

And oh, sorry that I sounded rude the other time, didn't meant to be that way :( I really love all the stories posted here, thanks for the translations :D

SAYA said...

@syazafall: you wait and see. If I'm dead by next week, then it means YES.

@neu:yes dear. Don't use your house phone you might give your mother a heart attack.

@Luna: THAT WAS ONLY A JOKE dear. I already said so. Don't worry about it. For a moment I didn't know what you were talking about.I don't remember you being rude, sweetheart! And I appreciate your commnet very much.Thank you ;)

Nami said...

Woah! I'm definitaly going to try this later! >:3

But it probably won't work. It'll probably say that the number doesn't exist. D:

Luna~ Actually, I heard that there's a site where you put your phone number and you get a call at 3am. Or the site give you a number and when you call you hear noises, and at 3am you get a phone call from this number and you hear things that may really shock you. Something like that, I can't really remember. >_<

Saya~ Ehhh?! You tried it already? Did you heard something? If yes, be careful dear!

Ina said...

if it is NOT a cell phone but a home number then i might be able to call it from the Mall since there is a worldwid free phone!! i live in Greece you see!

Tani said...

"This phone number does not exist..." T__T I wanted to hear Sadako scream at me.
Have you tried it, Saya san?

Matteo said...

It won't work here in New Zealand >.<

It's a shame because I like stories like this haha.

GVM said...

Agreed love the story but I fear my employers would not like seeing an international charge on the bill either. So if I did call seven days before the bill was deliver, something truly bad would happen.

nothing- said...

I really want to try it, I'm just afraid of the bill ~ haha

*the* sadako?
I WILL NEVER TRY THIS. EVER.

*shivers* D8

shiyun said...

I know this!

They tried it in USO Japan, (i was 10 years ago... god I still remembered) and they had some pretty bad noises, didnt let the audience hear though.

Apparently you won't die from callling it, since Takky from Takky and Tsubasa called it, and he is still alive...

Klavdiya said...

I think there was a movie based on that legend, or am I wrong?

Luna said...

Hey Nami,

Are you serious? I mean there's a site like that? Wow. But maybe that's probably a generator or something like that I guess. Thanks for sharing anyway :)

Oh Saya, oops I didn't know that was a joke >_< Hahas, in that case, phew :)

Nami said...

Luna~
Yeah, but it's fake as hell D:

I tried to call it once, but it didn't worked out, since I'm brazilian ._.

Saya~
Deus do céu, Saya não apareceu mesmo! Sadako has taken Saya away from us!? ;3;

Михаил said...

Heh, I wanna try it.
Um, did someone notice, that Miss Saya posted this at 4:44? hehehe that's an awesome detail x3

psycho-waka said...

omg I wanna try it to. But I don't want to pay for it.. haw I'm stuck because I don't know what to do X'D.........

Zoicite said...

Well If I remember correctly, 4 in japan is read "shi" that also mean "death", right? (this is just something I learned watching anime XD)

TeaFlower said...

Hello!
Oh this sounds fun! Does it work?
I want to have a conversation with Sadako, I wonder if we have much in common? :)

Alyciabaleesha said...

Anonymous said...

Hi Saya!

I recently came across your blog and I wanted to let you know tat I really appreciate how you're taking the time to share Japanese urban legends through is blog. It's brilliant! I've read all of your posts and I want MORE! Keep up the great work! :)

Simon said...

Saya...please update :(

eri said...

To the people who say this doesn't work, to make international calls, you need to add a country code before a number. You can't make a phone call to another country without it.

81 is the country code for Japan.

Japanese phone number either start from 080 or 090, you need to take off the first zero, and add 81 at the beginning.

So Sadako's phone number is
090-4444-4444

This is what you should call if you live outside Japan:
81 90-4444-4444

Anonymous said...

Are you not updating because you're pretending to be dead? >:D For a moment I really thought that you had died in an accident.

Simon said...

Saya is completely alive...she makes updates on her OTHER blog!

Nami said...

Simon~

Yes, and she made a update days after this Sadako Phone Number post with a video, but it was removed from YouTube at so she deleted it. ;O;

Truncheon said...

I'm sorry, I won't call a ghost that might kill me if it requires me paying for overseas charges (yeah, it works the other way around where I live).

James Gil said...

I live in Japan and I just called this number from my cell phone. All I heard was what sounded like a robot trying to speak underwater. It was more obnoxious than creepy.

Samuel Ward said...

Hello Ms. Saya. I must say I have over the past few weeks kind of become a fan of your blog. I have one that is somewhat similar to this and I found the things you have posted here extremely interesting and sometimes a little scary. Anyways I was going to invite you and anyone else to come look at my blog at: http://musichorrorandakirayamaoka.blogspot.com/

is it really true about the phone call?

Anonymous said...

hear death strait over the phone its suicidal but fun lol

Concerned SIU Blog Reader said...

Miss Saya, where are you? DID YOU CALL THE NUMBER? Oh no >< I miss you!

Realmentealpedo said...

Hi!How are you?It's my first time visiting your blog, and I think it's great, specially the "cryptic stories". I was wondering if I have your permission to translate them into Spanish ("The well" and "a ghost photograph"). I, of course, will give you the credit and put a link to your blog. The thing is that I just created my own blog and, well, some of friends of mine really like that kind of stories but they can't speak English...

So please, tell me what you think about it.I'm not going to do anything until I hear from you.

Take care!;)

Amy said...

I found another scary cryptic paranormal blog! It's called "In the Blue Garden" or "The Blue Garden". It's actually my friend's.

Odinvindr said...

Arigato for this! I am trying it right now! Got an international calling card to elude those ghostly charges ;-) I hope she...it...cant track my number and call me back asking for my address :-) By the way, I am planning a paranormal investigation trip to Aokigahara in the near future. Destination Truth did not satisfy my curiosity. I would appreciate all information and tips, any personal stories, etc!

Yoku said...

I might try this, but maybe in a couple months.And IN broad day light with my friends.

Anonymous said...

I tried this as well. Heard some weird long noise. I listen it like 10 seconds, it was creepy. Then i thought that the bills going to be huge anyway and just cut the line :D Guess it's just some sorta trick.

Anonymous said...

Tried it with the +81 code

All I can hear is *toooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot* without any ring!

Anonymous said...

Hi Saya-san

I dared one of my friends to dial the number at 3:00 AM at my house today. When she dialed we heard a
cracking noise. She peed her pants and we were all laughing but the cracking noise didnt stop until 10 minutes later. Do u really think
we're gonna hit rock bottom?

Li Wei said...

Hello Saya~! ^-^
I actually tried this on my phone, but not with the +81, I did it with the 011-81-090-4444-4444, it was silent for like two minutes and then the operator said something about it not working. I don't remember. XD

Anonymous said...

+81-90-4444-4444 call!!!Its very creepy

Anonymous said...

If I remember correctly, this is from å short-movie made by the creator of Ju.On.... Very creepy! (Great blog, btw!)

ayakashi said...

I researched the number and apparently it's a decommissioned NTT test number; I think it's based in Okinawa but I forget. The ボーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー sound is just some form of dial tone.

ayakashi said...

Wait, no Okinawa is 098, 090 is just cell numbers, although NTT, being a cell company, would probably use the cell phone dialling code.

Oh and it wasn't a test number, it's a decommissioned CENTER number.

They have rubbish taste in phone numbers.

In reality, Sadako-san doesn't have as much superpowers as in the novel :) She can only see things through some objectives (like dices inside a bowl) and take photos via brain-effect-or-whatever-it-is-called-since-my-mind-is-a-long-forgotten-storage. But... still, I want to try this. But unfortunately I live in Vietnam, so it may happen that my house being destroyed by a mountain of bills...

fistaniaa said...

Saya, you should probably delete some comments in this page... :(

But anyway, i actually don't believe in this praticular ritual, but generaly, ghostly phone calls are scary and is not impossible to happen! >_<
