Haunted Hotel In Ginza (银座鬼旅店)
My friend is a miko or a Shinto witch in Japanese. She once
told me that there is a haunted hotel in Ginza that is formerly an abandoned
hospital. You will notice it once you are in one of its lifts as the size of
the lift is a little ‘oversized’. It is said that these lifts used to transport
the sick in and out of operating theatres or to transport the dead to the
Another friend of mine, Janet who is an air hostess serving
one of the renowned airline plying between KL and Tokyo has this to say about
this special hotel:
“As my work requires it, I was once put up in this haunted
hotel for a week or so due to extremely bad weather. My room was situated at
the last room at the end of the 4th floor, my room number was 414.
Although I wasn’t superstitious, the number 414 gave me the creeps… You know,
4-14 means “die, sure die” in Cantonese.
Well, my first night in the hotel was quite peaceful except
that I thought I heard many footstep
sounds in the corridor in the midnight. It didn’t bother me a bit as it was a
norm for people to move in and out of the hotel at night due to flight schedule
things started to occur the next night. I thought I heard some knocking on my
room door, I thought it was my college who wanted to inform me of my flight
schedule. So I opened the door and to my surprised that there weren’t anyone
there though I did felt a gust of wind blew into the room.

temperature of my room suddenly dropped to freezing point. There was icy air
blowing onto my neck and cheek as if the room window is opened since outside
was having snow storm.
point I was so agitated that I strived to crack open my eye lids and to my
horror, I saw the face of a lady as white as the snow blowing cold air from her
mouth towards me…
I was then
frozen stiff as if an ice log… my mind went blank but I remembered my late
grandma so I tried all effort to squeeze the strength for a shout for life: “Ah
Mah! Help me!” I lost consciousness and when I finally woke up, it was already
10am in the morning.
the day, I caught hold a housekeeping maid and asked her if she knew any
history of my room. The maid quietly led me to a corner and whisper near my
ear: “You know madam, few years back during severe winter such as of now; a
lady was frozen to death after being trapped in a snow storm just outside of
this hotel. The body of this lady was temporary stored in your room waiting for
a coroner. She was quite a beautiful lady but she was frozen solid and that she
was as white as the snow outside…”
that, my heart was frozen icy cold, for that was the lady I saw blowing cold
air onto my neck and cheek! I immediately packed up my belongings and rather
spent my own money to stay in another hotel just opposite street.”
