Mysterious ‘ghost’ boots appear in photo of girl near samurai graveyard.
This is what’s happened ever since a Reddit user uploaded the following photo. It features a young girl standing near a beach that’s across from a samurai graveyard.
And if you look behind her legs, you’ll see what appears to be a pair of boots and part of a shirt peeking out from… somewhere.
“My daughter thinks the whole thing is just so funny,” Martin Springall, who snapped the image, tells ABC News. “She thinks it’s a ghost, but not a scary ghost – a nice one.”
The photo was taken last July in Zushi, Japan.
Springall shared the shot with a friend, who uploaded it to the “Ghosts” subreddit.
“Some thought it could be the ghost of a World War II sailor,” he says, not offering up any of his own theories, but making it clear no actual person was there:
“My daughter is really shy, and she wouldn’t have taken a picture if there was someone standing behind her, which I would have definitely noticed.”
