(MIRROR UK) – At least seven taxi drivers in Ishinomaki, north-east Japan, have reported experiencing a "phantom fare" in the wake of the devastating 2011 tsunami and earthquake.
In each instance, the story is similar. A taxi driver in north-east Japan picks up a passenger in an area devastated by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. They start the meter and ask for the destination, to which the customer gives a strange response.
Either then, or sometime later, the driver turns around to address the man or woman – but they have vanished. This is because, it is claimed, they were a 'ghost passenger' who was, in fact, killed in the disaster five years ago.
