Response : Ghostly Japan

by on Nov.12, 2009, under General

Jimbly’s post about the ghosts of Japan reminded me of this article I read a few years back :-

“Detectives were skeptical when a pretty 14-year-old girl turned up at a Tsim Sha Tsui police station in May 1999 saying she was being haunted by the ghost of a woman she had helped torture, kill and butcher a year earlier. But when they followed up her claims and visited a third-floor apartment in Hong Kong’s shoppers’ paradise, Granville Road, they uncovered what many police and lawyers consider Hong Kong’s most sordid and revolting crime in almost a decade. A story that reveals a Hong Kong most people would not recognise – a gangster world of money, sex and drugs. A brutal city, without moral order, watched over by a super-cute cat with no mouth that agrees with everything you do.”

“Does Hello Kitty hate the people who killed Ah Map?” I ask. “Oh no,” she says. “Hello Kitty doesn’t hate anybody. She never tells you off.” Hello Kitty, the perfect icon for an amoral age.”  - Tom Hilditch
