Hanako-San| The Japanese Urban Legend
So this is one of those urban legends kids tell in schools, it’s the kind that kids laugh and brush off when they’re with friends, but when they’re alone they think twice about it. This one doesn’t stem from the United States or anywhere close to it, it comes from Japan and has to do with a bathroom.
Yes a ghost in a bathroom….
Supposedly if a girl goes into a bathroom and asks “Are you there, Hanako-san“, will hear a voice answer “I’m here” and if the person asking chooses to go into the bathroom stall a little girl in a red dress is in there.
She usually asks “where are my legs?”….
I think I would freak out if I ever witnessed that, how about you? While the legend is still murky as to it’s real history, some say it comes from a WW2 story of a girl that died in a bathroom, she’s forever stuck in some kind of loop. Other stories say that she died in a bathroom of some kind of accident forever haunting young girls.
Do believe this story is true or just some randomly made up story to scare girls in the bathroom?
