Wan Chai Star Street (Air-raid Shelter)

Supernatural Tour: Hong Kong District VS Japanese Occupation Period

Wan Chai Star Street (Air-raid Shelter)

Hong Kong Island Hong Kong

Created By: Hong Kong Baptist University


Wan Chai Star Street contains lots of ghost tales and supernatural incidents – especially the mysterious air-raid shelter. The shelter was built during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong for citizens to evade bomb attacks. However, the Japanese decided to bombard the shelter, and many citizens died in this attack.

Ghost Story:
The ghost tale started when citizens reported that they saw a bunch of people with suffering faces standing in front of the door. Others also said that they saw the gate open when it should have been closed. So, citizens decided to place a shrine and a large red cloth to evict those ghosts or souls. However, a citizen said that he had been in the shelter to avoid the attacks and had never seen the Japanese army come inside to kill people. Instead, he described the shelter as “cold and dark.” So, it is hard to justify whether those ghost tales happened. Believe it or not!
