A ghost in boots appeared in a photo with a little girl who was on vacation with her family. According to ABC News, the 4-year-old was in Zushi, Japan, last July when her dad snapped a photo of her on a beach near a samurai graveyard. After taking a closer look at the photo, the girl’s father noticed something behind his daughter… something that looked like a pair of boots.
He decided to show the picture to one of his friends, who posted it on Reddit. As you can imagine, the picture has since gone viral. The consensus seems to be that the “boots” belong to a samurai ghost.

“My daughter thinks the whole thing is just so funny. She thinks it’s a ghost, but not a scary ghost — a nice one,” said Martin Springall. “I took a few pictures, and when I was looking through them at night, I noticed what appeared to be a pair of boots behind her in one of the photos. I took several of her in the same spot, but only one had the boots.”
The ghost wearing boots is easy to see in the photo.
Mr. Springall explained that his daughter wouldn’t have stood in front of someone because she is shy. The man claims that the boots sort of just appeared behind the girl, and the internet has been left trying to figure it out.
“Some thought it could be the ghost of a World War II sailor. 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.”
According to Good Morning America, the family claims that the picture is the original, and that it has not been retouched in any way.
Another ghost (not in boots) made a photo appearance after a couple’s wedding. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Christiana Quada Dennis and her husband, Kevin, shared a photo of themselves on social media. People quickly noticed a sinister-looking face between them, and that photo has also gone viral.
“Me and my wife’s favorite wedding photo … Until we saw what was between us … We still don’t know who it was. Her sister said it might be her but that face look absolutely nothing even close to it. That face looks like a baby face imo [in my opinion],” Kevin Matthew Dennis explained.
