This past weekend a couple friends and I went on a Spooky Sites tour. We left base at sunset and headed towards Cape Zanpa. I’ve been here many times during the day, but never at night. The bus driver missed our turn at one point, so we had to turn around. On the way back, he missed it again. This time for good reason. A lady was having chest pains, so we stopped at a convenience store to wait for an ambulance. Once she was taken care of, we set off again. Since we were running so far behind, we ended up not having a lot of time once we got to our stops, so our tour guide did his best to tell us all the stories on the bus.
During WWII, the Japanese repeatedly told the Okinawans that the Americans would do horrible things to them, including women and children, if they got ahold of them. Because of this, many Okinawans committed suicide. They figured it was better to take their own life than to suffer by the hand of the Americans. Parts of the island have high, rocky cliffs above the ocean. Many people took their lives by jumping off the cliffs. People have reported seeing seeing figures jump off the cliffs or felt them running past them as they were standing near the edge. (Check this video out. You’ll see a ‘figure’ jumping, but who knows if it’s legit) Faces have also been reportedly seen in the waters off these cliffs.
