The mystery of the Japanese Okiku doll whose hair continues to grow
.Okiku doll is a creepy doll in a shrine in Iwamizawa, Japan. There is an interesting and mysterious story about this doll that has existed since 1 century ago. Launching from the odditycentral.com page, the Okiku doll is a doll dubbed a ghost doll and is so feared in Hokaido.
How could it not be feared, the doll in the form of a little girl with black hair and red clothes seemed to be alive. Her hair continues to grow every day like a human. Similar to the Annabelle doll, many people believe that this doll is alive and has a mysterious, creepy aura.
Regarding the Okiku doll, the story says that this doll belonged to a 3 year old child named Kikuko who later died of a severe cold. In 1918, the boy's 17 year old brother bought this doll for him as a present.
Kikuko loves her dolls so much, she also always carries them wherever she goes. Until one day, the little girl was sick with flu and died. After her baby died, Kikuko's doll was entrusted to a shrine as a memento.
In the past, this doll's hair was only limited to its jaw. But as time goes by the doll's hair continues to grow like the hair of a human child. The monk where Okiku was kept also had time to cut her hair but it continued to grow. Not only hair, some people believe that the teeth from this doll also grew.
So far, it is not known why Okiku's doll hair continues to grow. Even scientific research has not yet found the answer to this mystery. Today, the story of the Okiku doll has become so famous that it has inspired several novels, films and traditional dramas.
