SCP-040-JP before containment.

Item #: SCP-040-JP

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-040-JP is contained within a structure constructed to cover the area of the anomaly. The containment wing is under the jurisdiction of Site-8120. When inside the containment wing, personnel are advised to never look inside SCP-040-JP. If it is needed to look inside SCP-040-JP, it should be done through the camera and not directly with the naked eye. If it is necessary to have a direct view, it is advised to use D-class personnel. Communication with personnel who have been exposed to SCP-040-JP is forbidden.

Description: SCP-040-JP is a well located in the village of █████, in the ██████ prefecture. It is surrounded by a wooden hut, measuring approximately 5 m wide and 4 m long. The center of the hut houses a stone well presumed to have been built in ancient times, which descends directly underground. The well is anomalously deep and multiple probes have failed to determine its depth.

Although the hut was originally locked tightly with iron chains and multiple padlocks, they have since broken due to deterioration. SCP-040-JP was placed into containment after Incident [REDACTED] in 1967.

[Warning: After Incident-040-JP-001 in 19██, the following contents are prohibited for viewing without memetic countermeasures. Personnel assigned to this project must be treated with Procedure-253 "Willow Ashes" at Sector-8120.]

[End of Memetic Hazard.]

Incident Report 040-JP-001: On ██/██/19██, a large-scale memetic disaster occurred in Site-8120 as a result of this report. It is believed that the assigned staff and the upper staff were exposed to the memetic effects of SCP-040-JP at the time of submission of the report. Exposed personnel were subjected to amnestic treatment or termination. From this point onwards, memetic countermeasures are to be applied to all subsequent reports.1
