This article will be taking a look at the mystery of the man from Taured – is this strange report based on truth…or nothing more than a 1950’s urban legend?
Let’s take a closer look…
The report starts on a scorching hot July day back in 1954 (depending on what source you are reading!).
On this day, a strange man appears at Haneda Airport (Tokyo Airport) – he is described as Caucasian and he sports a beard.
He approached workers at the airport and started to talk to them in French, when they did not understand, he switched his language to Japanese.
He hands over his passport to the service desk and the security airport worker notices something strange – Whilst the passport looked authentic, the country where it was issued, ‘Taured’, was recognized as non-existent.
The man was immediately placed under arrest and taken away to be interrogated.
Where is Taured?
The ‘visitor’ spent many hours trying to convince the Japanese airport security that Taured was a real country – he claimed it was located between France and Spain, and had by then been in existence for 1000 years.
They got hold of a map, and sat the man down in front of it…he immediately pointed to the Principality of Andorra…but he was confused as to why it was not named Taured.
An argument broke out – the man claimed that he was telling the truth, and the authorities claimed that he was up to something shady!
The airport authorities decided that it was way to dangerous to let this man go – there was something not quite right about him, and he could well be a criminal.
They placed him in a hotel room nearby for the night, and left two guards outside his door.
The next morning, when the officers went to check in on the man, they were confronted by an empty room.
There were no signs of escape – the male visitor had simply vanished into thin air!
Unfortunately, all of his personal documents had vanished as well – making an investigation into his arrival, near enough impossible!
The Time Traveler
So who was the man from Taured?
Many people believe that he was some kind of time traveler, and a man that possessed the power to switch from dimension to dimension.
Did he know that he was actually traveling into another dimension?
Some argue that he probably didn’t – he ended up in Haneda Airport by complete accident!
Is Andorra known as Taured in his dimension?
Was he a clever time traveler?
How did he manage to vanish without a trace?
