I will be completely honest with you. I don’t know much about Pearl Harbor, why it happened, what exactly happened, etc.. My history classes really didn’t teach us much about either of the World Wars. What I do know I have picked up from history programming, museums, what my parents and grandparents have taught me, and living in Japan. The base we lived on in Iwakuni was where the Pearl Harbor attack was planned and one of the reason the United States acquired that base after the war ended. I have been up to the room (known on base as The Crow’s Nest) where the attack was actually planned. I wanted to do an investigation up there but the base wouldn’t allow it. One of the many ships that was involved in the attack on Pearl Harbor was the USS Arizona and even though it is now underwater, it is very haunted.

Last week has been a very busy week of getting back into our new routines. Jeremy’s PCS leave (time off for the move and to settle into the house) finally came to an end. He started the check in process on Wednesday. It’s going to take a few days for him to completely check in but so far he is liking his new shop and command. Continue reading My First Spouse Event In San Diego
While we lived in Iwakuni, I often heard about some of the various haunted locations in Okinawa. There are so many places, legends, and customs that I could (and will) write several posts about them but today I am going to focus on some of the paranormal activity that I have heard about happening on military bases. Continue reading Hai Sai, Okinawa
When we sleep we are the most vulnerable. Not just to normal things like attacks from adorable kittens or children but also from spirits. I often get messages about how people have connected with spirits of loved ones or with spirits in their home through dreaming. Continue reading Sleeping! Please Do Not Disturb!
Ask most paranormal investigators what’s on their paranormal bucket list and you’ll probably hear them answer “Japan’s Suicide Forest”. It has been on mine ever since I first heard about it on Destination Truth ten years ago. Ever since that episode I felt drawn to it. So when my husband came home from work one day in January, while we still lived in Iwakuni, saying that Papaya and Ortiz (two marines in his shop) said that they wanted to go camping in Suicide Forest in a few weeks, I immediately invited us along on their trip. Continue reading Spending The Night In Aokigahara
When I talk to people about what it’s like living with spirits, one thing that is often brought up is how animals seem to interact with spirits. I have heard a lot of people say that animals always seem to be more preceptive to spirits but honestly, I have witnessed animals are about as sensitive as humans. Some will acknowledge activity that is going on and some just seem oblivious to what is going on. Continue reading Cats, Chats, and Toilet Ghosts
When Dad was alive he spoke often to us about how he and his brother always said that if they could come back after they died, they would come back, and they would let their families know they were there. Dad had told us that would need to watch for signs that he was visiting. Continue reading Meet Our Ghosts: My Dad
One of the great things about living in Japan is finding random little thrift shops. Jeremy and I love exploring thrift stores trying to find hidden jewels. One of our favorite shops in Iwakuni is called Dragonfly. Last summer while walking around the back part of Dragonfly, Jeremy found this old lamp. It was an older touch lamp. He really wanted it because his grandmother had a very similar lamp and it reminded him of her. Continue reading Meet Our Ghosts: Rampu
