Way back in 2011, just months after a tsunami devastated the area, a cab in Ishinomaki, Japan picked up a young woman in a long coat.

When the driver told her the area she was looking to go was deserted, she shivered and asked weakly "Have I died?"

The cabbie turned around at that and the woman was GONE!

That's just one story to come out of the Miyagi Prefecture since the March 2011 tsunami.

Tohoku Gakuin University senior Yuka Kudo investigated the phenomena for her graduation thesis and found that no fewer than SEVEN taxi drivers were willing to share similar experiences!

In each case, the driver picked up a young passenger only to have them disappear mid-ride!

Interestingly, there's a record of each occurrence as the drivers actually started the meter running — and ended up having to pay the empty fares themselves…

All the stories unearthed so far involve ghosts of young men and women, leading Kudo to speculate:

"Young people feel strongly chagrined (at their deaths) when they cannot meet people they love. As they want to convey their bitterness, they may have chosen taxis, which are like private rooms, as a medium to do so."

We would be driving that taxi to the other side of the country, but according to Kudo's interviews the cabbies aren't even all scared!

One driver who lost a family member in the tsunami is even quoted as saying:

"It is not strange to see a ghost (here). If I encounter a ghost again, I will accept it as my passenger."

Cray!
