Japanese Ghost Story : The Railroad Crossing
Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)
Long time no see.
This time I’ll narrate you the creepy experience of my friend A(a woman in her twenties).
A had recently joined a company. The company was somewhat distant from her house and therefore she used trains to commute to her work daily. The train station was about at a 10-minute walking distance from her house and had a rail-road crossing in-between.
That day, her company had a drinking party. She returned to home from work and headed to the party place after changing her clothes.
She had lots of fun drinking with her co-workers. When the party was over, she headed to Karaoke with her close friends. In the midst of all the fun, she completely lost track of time and it was already the time for the last train. Not wanting to miss the train, she took her leave and hurried towards the train station. Fortunately, she was able to reach there just in time and board the train.
The thick darkness outside the train was a sign that it was already past the midnight.
She got down at the station near her home.
As she was walking on the platform, she got struck with this really deep uneasy feeling. At the very end of the platform, she saw a white figure. However, she was drunk so she blamed it on that and headed to her house.
While walking on the pathway to her house, she got a feeling of being followed by something. She figured it might be the white figure from before.
Hastily, she reached the rail-road crossing. The alarm was beeping–a sign of oncoming train. Not wanting to get stuck with the white thing from before, she hurriedly crossed the rail-road crossing before the gate could close.
She looked back. The white figure was standing behind the closed gate of the crossing. When she realized the abomination that was following her for so long, she got goosebumps on her whole body.
The figure looked like a woman in white clothes. The face, however, was totally covered by her black hair. Although it seemed like the figure was standing, it was totally in an unnatural way. The whole of her lower body was transparent.
The oncoming train blocked the view for a few moments. When the train was gone, so was the white figure.
My friend ran towards her house.
It’s been a long time since that incident and A has not encountered that white thing again. She even searched about any accidents that might have happened there but she couldn’t find any.
Whatever it was will remain a mystery, that’s for sure.
