One of the Seven Mysteries of a certain school in Asahikawa...

Rumours, urban legends, mysteries... Every summer in Japan, the school's seven mysteries are an hot topic among students. How about your school? Were there any mysteries or rumours ?


« Every summer » ?

During summer in Japan, TV spotlights ghost stories programs.
Watching those programs gives you chills during hot summer nights.
However our reporter regrets watching ghost-related programs every time. But he, like a lot of people, can’t help but to watch it. Human beings are sure strange...

Japan’s All Saints’ Day and All Souls Day is happening during summer and called Bon Festival (obon). That partially why Japanese’s ghost stories period is not around Halloween but in August.

The school’s seven mysteries

School's seven mysteries topics are popular even in companies and in the society in general.

One day, a coworker from the same school as our reporter asked him if there was any mystery in his school during his time, when he was still a student.
« There was! » answered our writer.

However, since there is a great age difference between the two of them, the mysteries are completely different. After all, the school seven mysteries are mere urban legends...

When he was an high school student...

When he was attending a certain high school in Asahikawa, there was a rumour that went like:
« It appears when ●● can be seen from the front... » .
Why is there a censored word here ? Don’t worry, it’s only to not specify and keep the school anonymous, because only few schools have a ●● .

During his high school days, there was a qualification that can be get by going to supplementary lesson during the evening.
Our reporter and 10 of his friends decided to go to the « the classroom where the ●● can be seen from the front »
Our writer walked in the middle of his friend group when one of the leader ran back as fast as he could while screaming:
« I saw it! I saw it!! It was there!!! ».
Drawn into his friend’s pace, our poster decided to calmly return to his classroom without knowing or checking « the classroom where the ●● can be seen from the front ».

A weird story

Later that day, another friend of him came back saying:
« There were two girls in the classroom. »
Our writer, relieved, thought :
« Whaaat ? So all of this was only about some students remaining in the classroom after school ! »
Until another friend responds with:
« Huh ? But... When I went there, there was three girls... »

Since the beginning of his second year of high school, our reporter’s school uniform went through some changes and first year students of his school had to wear the new school uniform.
The friend who came back a bit later said that there were two girls in new uniforms.
However, the friend who went earlier to the classroom saw two girls in new uniforms and one girl in the old, sailor uniform.

There was a discrepancy between the two stories.
Were the seven mysteries based on unfounded lies ? Or were they true ?
The situation went out of hand between the 10 friends.

The racket went on for a while. But they had to know, they had to see the truth by their own eyes, together. The 10 friends decided to go, for a second time, to the rumoured classroom to put an end to all of this.
But when they got there, nobody was in the classroom...
Lights off, the truth was lying into the darkness.

Do urban legends actually exist...?

Our reporter experienced one of the seven mysteries of his school, but when he talked about it to his younger coworker, his junior told him that, during his time, he haven’t heard about this mystery.
Was everything an urban legend ? Or maybe was there a misunderstanding about this whole situation ?
We will never know the answer to this question.
How about you ? Was there any mystery in your school ?
