Its amazing the stuff you find on these Shinsengumi anime forums and blogs .

I was actually researching the room where Serizawa was killed, while i would not say haunted, its funny that no one stayed in the Yagi residence for long, after the Yagyi family left in the Meiji Era .

I came across this translation of memoirs of Yagi Tamesaburo, the youngest Yagi child, who was 12 years old at the time of Ikedaya. He describes the day after, most notable is the debunking of Okita, coughing up blood during the fight.

I visited the Yagi residence around 2007 or so. It was super interesting, but I have to wonder how legitimate it all is. I mean, there are sword cuts on the wall supposedly from that night. I can imagine the home owner hacking it with a knife to "replicate" it. I wonder if it is actually legit.
