Real Haunted House

Kaimuki House

Kaimuki, Hawaii
By Cecilia

Hawaii is known for its beaches, beautiful scenery, and friendly natives…but did you know it’s also one of America’s most haunted states? There are countless stories telling of ghosts and demons, including a particularly nasty one located at the famous Kaimuki House in Honolulu, Hawaii. Many families have moved or vacationed there over the years, only to be thrown out by strange and usually dangerous occurrences. On one occasion, a young couple bought the property and moved in. Within a short time, people next door started hearing loud bangs and crashes. Thinking it was a domestic violence incident, the neighbors called the police. But when the police arrived to investigate, nobody could even begin to explain what had been happening. All the couple could gather was that it felt as if they were “being attacked by something they could not even see.”

The creature said to reside in the Kaimuki house is called a “Kasha”, a man-eating ghost from Japanese folklore. Other interpretations of this monster include a ghoul who lives around crematoriums and feeds on the dead, and a cat-like demon from the sky who steals away bodies. However, all three versions have one thing in common: its insatiable hunger for blood and corpses.

Sometime during the summer of 1942, the police were called to the house again for another incident. A woman had been repeatedly screaming, “She’s trying to kill my children!” which they heard upon pulling up to the front of the house. After entering, the police could only stare for over an hour as the three kids were hurled across the room, slapped, and levitated…all by some invisible force. This event (which was published in the local newspaper) inspired Arthur McDougal to write a fictional, much more violent account. In his story, the children were literally ripped apart by the entity right before the mother’s eyes.
In the spring of 1977, another young couple moved into the Kaimuki House, oblivious to its creepy history. Nothing seemed to be out of the ordinary until they returned from having a traditional Hawaiian Mother’s Day dinner, and retired for the night at about 8:00 pm. Around midnight, the bedroom became increasingly chilly, although there was no wind blowing through the curtains. Having woken up, the wife saw a white figure of a large woman standing at the foot of their bed. However, there was nothing visible below her waist, and she appeared to have no arms. Once the wife got up to use the bathroom, the figure disappeared. A little shaken by these events, the couple made an appointment to see their reverend. He told them that their visitor was simply a wandering, harmless spirit who needed a little help moving on. He then advised them to put some food and water on a table every night in the general area where they had seen the ghost, and toss it out the window at dusk as an offering. After the couple repeated this for a whole week, the woman never appeared again.
A possible explanation for these spooky happenings may be the two murders allegedly committed in the house. The first one is a twist on the story mentioned before, about the children being brutally killed. However, the case states that it was actually a father who murdered his two kids, along with his wife. He buried his son and wife in the backyard, but the daughter’s body was never found. The second event tells of a lesbian couple, where one of the women became involved with a man. After discovering his girlfriend’s secret, the man proceeded to kill her, the other woman, and himself…all within the walls of the Kaimuki house. Today, villagers still tell stories of the terrifying occurrences, and many books and newspaper articles have been written detailing the haunts.

i live right down the road from this house in kaimuki, and even the police could not explain just what happened over there. the couple who bought the property were picked up into the air and was thrown around from wall to wall. the neighbors thought that it was a domestic fight.the police were called to deal with the issue. but when they got there, they could not explain what went on inside the house.they could not explain that if they were called there for a couple fighting, but yet both people were saying that they were being attacked by something they could not even see.for about 6 yrs. the house could not be sold or rented. no one wanted to go in was boarded up and just left to rot. about 2 yrs. ago someone must have bought the house because we noticed that the property was being cleaned up and was looking really nice…but then the fixing stopped.we never heard of anything weird going on or any rumors about something strange happening…but still…the house is alone again.

The supposed “house” that these people are talking about is located on the corner of 8th and harding.

the ghost that resides in this house is called a “Kasha”…it’s a man eating ghost, originated in japanese folklore…and obviusly exsistent for the following reason.

the family that lived there before the vacancy had two children and a single mother. both children were killed by this “entity”…ripped apart by an invisible force…right before the mother’s eyes, as well as the eyes of several police officers that were called to the scene, due to screams and major comotion.

these events are actually documented in a police report, therefore deeming this event CREDIBLE.

BUT what people have wrong..

This house on 8th and Harding IS NOT the house. people only assumed it was this particular house because is was abandoned and run down…having a menacing, “haunted” appearance. what’s even more interesting, is there is a book that was published in hawaii called “Obake Files” with the documented story about the night of the “kasha”. the author, Glen Grant, was sued because the people that owned this house on 8th and Harding were actually trying to sell the house at the time…and it went unsold for a good fifteen to twenty years.

the actual location of this house was not disclosed to the public, for fear of hysteria…or nosy teenagers wanting a thrill.

this house on 8th and harding now has people living in it…i know, because i live on ninth avnue in between harding and waialae ave. that’s right, i live a block away .

so yeah peeps…and all you non belivers…what do you have to say to that?

Aloha Folks,
As a former resident of the beautiful island of O’ahu, I can honestly say that Hawai’i is one of the most spiritual places that I’ve ever lived. Along with spirituality comes rules though, and being a believer of things unseen, I followed the rules the best I could. Unfortunately I can’t say that I ever actually “saw” anything, and believe me, I looked, but I can say that there were many times that I “felt” something. Just that kind of feeling when you know you’re not alone. Friends of mine and I used to go up to the Tantless(?)lookout to have a few and talk story from time to time, and on one occassion we were all there having a good time when all of a sudden everyone got really quiet for no reason. Finally one of my friends asked if anyone else felt like we should hele on, and everyone jumped in the car right away. Later on at the house, we all agreed that we had all felt like we were being watched, and something wasn’t happy about us being there. Anyway, not really scary, more creepy, but a small example. Whether you believe or not, why test it? If you find yourself in Hawai’i, or anywhere else where you’re just a visitor, follow the local rules and stay out of trouble. BTW, my buddy’s a cop for HPD… Says the Kaimuki story is true. Swears it. And one last thing to you young braddahs and sistahs… I agree that there are a lot of stupid haoles that will talk stink about locals and say that you’re uneducated and second class. We all know that those are just the words of ignorant people, but why perpetuate it? Keep the pidgin for locals, not message boards. Haoles don’t get it, and what they can’t understand, they ridicule. Just some thoughts from someone whose seen both sides of the coin… Aloha Nui!

I was born on the beautiful island of Oahu.
I am a recent student of Paranormal Investigations.
I have studied and been fascinated with the subject and have obtained equipment to help me document events of the unexplained. If anyone has information on the location of Paranormal occurences, being it to ghosts, demons, or other strange happenings. I ask of you, if it is not against the rules of this forum to post the address so I may attempt my own investiagtions into such matters.
Thank you

What kind of equipment did you obtain to document unexplained events?

My friends and I have gone ghost hunting all over the island as I too am facinated with the subject.

Where have you investigated so far?

Btw, my friend lives near the real kasha house and she says walking down that street even during the daytime, it’s unusually quiet and she gets bad vibes there.

Are you only investigating hauntings in Hawaii, or on the mainland as well?

The Investigator says:

To Reid
I have finally returned to this website. Forgive me for my absence. Yet to reply to your question, I use IR Theromo-meters. Sony Nightvision/Infrared camcorder. Db rating Motion detectors, Trifield EM meter, Tri-Axis EMF meter, Gauss meter, Radiation 4 meter, the list continues, and grows slowly. Yet my main tool I use for documenting any event is ” my Brain” and “Perception”. Now to answer your question about where I have investigated, It has private homes, located in Wahiawa, Ewa Beach, and Kunia.
Those places though, must be redone, for I was much younger at the time, and less experienced.

I would enjoy to participate with any other Investigators on the Island of Oahu, I am however still young, and leave my mind open to learn from more experienced Investigators.

I am currently , only Investigating on the Island of Oahu. I am debating upon taking my methods to the mainland , yet I am more fond of the mysticism the Hawaiian islands provide.

Check out 1124-D Macomb Rd. Ft. Shafter if you can.
Got ran out of there in 1974 by very active spirits.
Check with Priests at bottom of Pali Clifts. They made us stay there and told us not to return home for two days. They also believe and know stories. They had a Bishop from Rome come and Bless their rooms to keep out walking spirits.
Check out KoleKole Pass. MPs have been locked out of their cars and all their lights and sirens were turned on.
