The nuclear bomb images from Hiroshima and Nagasaki are in my mind some of the most poignant moments of history captured. It is not secret to people that know me I am an avid hater of modern warfare outside of the TV screens and books.

My grandfather died of war wounds when my mother was thirteen and no doubt anyone else with connections to serving men and women will know the fear that comes with their campaigns away. So with that in mind I hope I don’t seem to be sensationalising it all with this post.

If any places on the planet were likely to be haunted I would put my last dollar/pound on these two places. No surprise then that there have been reports of voices with pleads and cries from around the area around twilight.

USAF Storage Haunts – Okinawa in Japan, the whole island there is said to be haunted from the WW2 era as well. It is said that one of these areas is the Munitions Storage on Kadena AB, along one of the main roads there is a clearing used for fishing at the lake. It is said that sometimes people are sat there at night and hear noises like feet stomping the ground. There have been reports that a battalion of Japanese soldiers have been seen walking across the lake, who then disappear suddenly.

Yokosuka Naval Base, Gridley Tunnel is a narrow, one way tunnel that runs through a hill from Gridley Lane to Nimitz Boulevard. There are reports from people driving through the tunnel that they have seen a man dressed as a samurai, the reports bear similarity for the most part.

People report that as they are driving through they look in their rear view mirror to see a man dressed as a Samurai, he stands in the middle of the road where there was no one before. Some people have been startled enough to ram into the side of the tunnel.

Legend has it that the samurai was on the way to avenge the death of his lord but was ambushed at the tunnel and cut down. Because he had failed in his mission he cannot leave his place of death. I can’t help but think if that is the way of the Samurai that there should be an abundance of these sightings all over Japan… not every Samurai was Rurouni Kenshin after all!
