Well, if he had pictures, that certainly suggests a phenomenon outside post traumatic stress or any other perception issue.
I just posted that its well known that people report apparitions being seen (or auditory phenomenon) at the scene of fatal road crashes, or at airfields where there have been fatal accidents. I think the point he was making that, if its just a result of PTSD, then it would be a much more common occurrence, happening to people who had witnessed great loss of life at or near the place they see the phenomenon. Usually, these 'area specific' cases are witnessed by people who werent there during the original, fatal event, ruling out PTSD altogether (or PTSD brought on by the event).
so your saying it ghost & hallucinations ....

The Japanese people were VERY OPEN to the afterlife and to spooks.
Yes. They are.
And traumatic stress could indeed manifest itself as hallucinations drawing on that deep cultural influence.
