Well as promised here is Japanese ghost story number two, one of the works currently featured in the show “Love, Thieves and Fear make Ghosts” at the Japan Foundation Gallery in Sydney.
It was also featured here recently.
The Girl in the Blue Dress (青いドレスの少女)
A well-known story among Kyoto taxi drivers is the one about the ghost who appears as a young lady and hails a taxi for a ride.
According to one sightseer’s experience in the ancient capital;
“I took a trip to Kyoto looking for ghosts. A taxi driver said he picked up a young woman along the banks of the Kamo River and started taking her to a place called Midoro Pond. When they entered the dark Tadasu Forest, the driver looked back at the woman, but he saw nothing there except for a damp spot on the seat where she had been sitting.”
If the Kyoto cabbies are to believed, this perpetually on-the-go phantom still haunts them to this day.
