OKIKU, THE JAPANESE CURSED DOLL | Draw My Life


Hello Tiktakers, and welcome to a new Scary
Tuesday. In this occasion, we are travelling to Japan
to tell you about a mysterious doll, apparently possessed by the spirit of a little girl. Today, we are telling you the story of the
doll Okiku. Since they are so similar to us, dolls are
half way through the living and the dead, those who feel and those who don’t. This is why, in Ancient times, dolls had a
magical and spiritual nature. They could be used for so many things, from
representing fertility to accompanying the dead in their graves. As they acquired a more human appearance,
they called kids’ attention and became entertaining objects, but the mysticism was always there. Throughout history and all around the world,
we can find many cases like Okiku’s. The story says it all started in 1918, when
a 17-year-old young lady called Eikichi Suzuki bought a doll for her 2-year-old little sister,
Kikuko, as a souvenir from a marine exposition she had visited, in Sapporo, in the japanese
island of Hokkaido. The doll was 40cm tall and was wearing a traditional
japanese kimono. Her eyes were black and her face of white
china. Her black hair was at shoulder level. The girl was sick and she couldnt leave the
house much, so she loved her new doll, she spent all day playing with her and named her
Okiku. They were inseparable, went everywhere together,
until tragedy hit the family. The girl got a lot worse and she spent many
months in bed, hugging her doll, until she died due to high temperature. As it is tradition in Japan, the day of Kikuko’s
cremation, her family placed her most loved objects to be burnt with her, but they forgot
about the doll. When they realized, they decided to keep it,
in memory of her little girl, and they placed her loved doll in an altar along with her
ashes. From that moment on, they started to feel
something strange was happening in the house. The doll’s black hair started to grow. It didnt take long for it to reach the knees. The family didnt get scared tho, the believed
it was Kikuko’s spirit inside the doll, somehow. They kept the altar and from time to time
they’d cut the doll’s hair, to keep it nice and pretty, but it grew again, inexplicably. With the begining of World War 2 in 1939,
the Suzukis decided to move to the Isle of Sakhalin, and they took the doll to the Mannenji
Temple, in the city of Iwamizawa, where they thought it would be better off. They explained the priest there the supernatural
characteristics of the doll, but he didnt really believe them. However, soon after, all monks could see with
their own eyes how the hair grew and grew. Cutting it became a common chore for them,
and they even took pictures with the different lenghts to hang them around the doll as ornaments. The doll Okiku is still in the Mannenji temple,
in the japanese prefecture of Hokkaido. This sanctuary is visited by thousands of
curious people every year wanting to check with their own eyes what is said about this
doll. Nowadays, they say it’s not only the hair
that has transformed, but also the lips, closed in the past and opened now with some humidity
even. They also say her fixed eyes seem to be looking
at the visitor, as if she was alive, looking more and more like a human being. It’s not really clear why the hair of the
doll Okiku grows. Nobody has really been capable of saying why
it has kept growing continuously for almost a century. Many experts in the field have analyzed samples
of the hair, saying it comes from a human being, but they werent able to give a scientific
explanation to this pecularity. And you, what do You think tiktakers? Is it just a trick? Or does the doll really hold the spirit of
the girl, who’s back from the dead?
