Real Ghost Stories

Geisha's Song 2


After what I've had seen I was determined to find out what happened to her. Going back inside my room wasn't easy, but I had to because if anyone suspected anything wrong with me they would want to leave the house.

The next day while in my room I dropped a coin and it rolled under a large chest that was in the corner. Grandmother told me that it had been there since she was a child, so it hadn't been moved in years. Even though nothing was in there, it was still pretty heavy to move, when I pushed it just a bit I noticed that one wooden board was out of place.

When I finally got the old chest off of it I picked up the board and there was something below it. Wrapped around a piece of white cloth was what looked to be an antique jewellery box. I opened it and found old photos of men and women, one of the hair ornaments worn by the geisha, and what I think was a journal. Of course I was amazed and nervous, immediately I put everything back except for the small booklet. It was very plain compared to the jewellery box just a plain brown colour, even if I'm not all that fluent with the Japanese language I could understand somewhat of what was written in the booklet. (The name is changed because Grandmother preferred it) One of the pages in particular caught my attention. It read:

"Okasan (owner of the okiya) says I am doing better then the rest of the geisha. She says it is because of my young charm and gift for song." (Something in between) "I have gotten the attention of one particular man. His name is Murakami Katsuro and he is quite a successful businessman. By the way that he behaves around me I can tell that he might one day be my danna." "That is what I am dreading..."

The rest was to faded out to read and this on was the last page, the rest were blank.

When my family went to do some shopping I asked Grandmother about the whole thing. She got very nervous, but she gave in and apparently Grandmother knew the young woman, her geisha name was Sokuhei and her real was Haruko Oshiro...

What gave you the idea to drop a coin all of a sudden?

I'm sorry this was a real interesting read but I just don't feel I can offer any advice or enjoy it to it's full capacity as it just sounds too familiar to one of the many stories/movies i've witnessed...
Please try to include all details it may encourage others to not be as skeptical as myself, but all in all I enjoyed the read and really do wish the best for any spirit still stuck in our plane

FYI: My mom is Japanese and she said that Murakami is a man's last name, meaning "upper village". Haruko, (Geisha's real 1st name) means Spring, like the season.

This is a really great story and certainly one that has meaning to me.

My wife is Japanese and my two children and I (including my wife, of course,) visit her family in Tokyo every year.

I would love to know more about this story.

Also, as a professional journalist, I can tell that you have great talent for story writing. Keep it up! 😁

Thank you for posting part 2. This is such a great story. Keep that journal and see if you can get anymore details about her life and possibly how she died. I wonder if Murakami ever offered to be her danna and if he is somehow involved with her death. If you find out anything else, please keep us posted. I'm hoping for a Geisha's Story 3 😊

that's a weird name (her real name). No offense I just know what it means cause I'm part japanese. So did you ever try looking around the house for any weird secret areas they might have had there? There has to be more things around that house. 😕
