♫~Still crazy after all these years . . . Aum Shinrikyo

Back the ’80s I used to see the “star” of this video game, the doomsday cult leader, Shoko Asahara, at my train station.

  1. There I was, March 20, 1995 in Tokyo, Japan. It was about 8:20 am and I was riding the Ginza line to work as an entry level computer butt boy for an international fashion retailer. And we were rolling down the tracks and for some unknown reason, we did not stop at the Tameike-Sannō station! That is also the same station for Marunochi line in the Chiyoda ward where the attacks were set off by the Aum Shinrikyo. As we kept going past, I noticed that there was no one on the platform of the Tameike-Sannō station and people on our train were like “Whoah dude WTF man! What happened?!?!” So we continued down the track further and I got off at Aoyama Itchome station and sure enough right at the gate there were many cops looking at me and everyone else really hard! So I just inserted my Teiki train pass in the turnstile and walked through and went to work. Got to the office and about a half an hour later someone got a call and then they announced in a loud voice that it was a sarin gas attack in the subways and at that moment, at least 10 were dead and many were seriously injured.

    I’ll never forget that day. Because the Aum Shinrikyo had their Tokyo headquarters in Aoyama! Because after the attack we started to really notice them walking around in their white hospital gowns, scurrying about like they were up to no good. And the cops were always in front of their headquarters and many were always in the train station too just watching and waiting for something else to happen. It was really a scary experience for myself and a lot of people too. Later on, after they busted Shoko Asahara, it was discovered that the Aum had a freaking helicopter and they had plans to drop tons and tons of sarin gas from it all over Tokyo! O-O And also they were trying to procure a nuclear device from the Russians. Yes, that is how insane they were. Thank God they all got busted!

    FUN TIMES!!~

    Aum Shinrikyo used to wear Asahara masks and elephant hats signifying the Hindu deity Ganesh. Then, the Aum loons would put on song and dance performances and endlessly repeat Shoko Asahara’s name at my station in Ebisu.

    Here’s a short video clip of the Aum’s happy headgear in action.

    I may be one of the onlookers in the crowd of the video since I watched the Aum freak show many times at Ebisu station Tokyo.
