KuneKune - The Japanese legend that no one has seen


The legend arose in Japan, where sightings of a creature are reported in rice fields or in the open sea. This being is described in humanoid and white form, being the only thing that can be said about its appearance. After all, it can only be seen from afar and everyone who saw it clearly went crazy or died.

Legends and folklore exist from primitive societies to the present. They arise from small concerns or facts that need an explanation by that people. An example of urban legend modern is KuneKune.

There are several factors that may suggest the reports. Such as the Japanese camps have scary scarecrows, which end up generating other stories. Another possibility is dehydration and heat stroke that can result from the hottest days.

Curiosity: Kunekune it is also a small breed of domestic pig from New Zealand. They are hairy, chubby and usually have barbels. They can be black and white like dalmatian, ginger, cream, black and brown.


The legend of KuneKune

The reports have many modifications. The hours vary, it can be at lunchtime or at night. They usually start in a green field or in a sea with a different breeze in the air (sometimes it is cold or even warm) felt with chills.

After the fact come the sight of a thick white mist, which dissipates slowly. In the distance a person dressed in white is seen moving in a strange way. It is not possible to visualize the physical characteristics and gender, only the elongated and slender shape of a white biped being.

When looked at more closely, you can see that it is squirming and bending from right to left and from left to right. The movements are impressive, form incredible angles and the way to maneuver the whole body is impossible for human members.

Watching KuneKune

When looking directly at the strange organism with binoculars or getting close, they send a message to the other person who almost had the same end.

  • “You mustn't see…;
  • "Run for your life ..."

Then the observer pales and begins to react with movements similar to those of the mysterious individual. Upon hearing the message, the victim's partner does not look at the entity and runs home.


Since, by ignoring that strange organism, he was spared the sad end of his partner (relative or friend, according to the variations of the stories).

When he arrives home, he asks for help to someone who explains that that existence is KuneKune and that he narrowly escaped becoming the next victim.

 Added to the end of the story are macabre and hysterical laughter from the victim and the certainty of hospitalization in mental health institutions for the rest of his life. What did you think of this Japanese legend? Will you face it?
