Flying saucers, conspiracy theories, criminal conduct, or even unusual creature sightings were not involved in one of the most mystifying incidents of the twentieth century.
It happened on an apparently ordinary day in one of the dullest and most monotonous locations imaginable: an airport. Yet no one understands precisely what occurred there, or why one ordinary business traveler became the center of a mystery that our contemporary society has mostly forgotten. “The Man from Taured” is how the tale is remembered.
‘The Taured’s Man’s Man’s Man’s Man’s
The Guy from Taured was a ‘weirdly acting’ man who landed in the summer of 1954 at Haneda Airport in Tokyo, Japan. When they asked him where he was from, he nonchalantly responded that he was from Taured, near the French-Spanish border. Officials informed him Taured didn’t exist, but he provided them with his passport, which was issued by the non-existent nation of Taured and had visa stamps confirming his past business trips to Japan and other countries.
His tale is eerily similar to that of Jophar Vorin, a wandering stranger with an odd time travel tale!
The Man From Taured’s Appearance:
A well-dressed middle-aged Caucasian male was identified as the suspect. He spoke French as his first language, but he also knew Japanese and a few other languages. And he seemed to be a well-mannered gentleman.
After, the individual was handed a map and asked to point out his homeland. He instantly pointed to the Principality of Andorra’s territory.
Andorra is a small, self-governing principality in the Pyrenees mountains, sandwiched between France and Spain.
Andorra is located on the French-Spanish border. The guy said that his nation had been around for 1000 years and was perplexed as to why it was labeled Andorra on the map. For a long time, the guy fought with the customs authorities and refused to give in.
What Is The Mysterious Situation?
He was also carrying a variety of currencies, most likely as a result of his many business travels. Other data revealed by the mystery guy were the firm for which he worked and the hotel where he stayed. Officials discovered that the firm he referenced only existed in Tokyo, not Taured.
The hotel he named also existed, but hotel workers advised them that no such reservation had been made. Officers were motivated to take the individual into jail for further questioning. Officers suspected him of being a criminal, so they took his papers and personal items. While conducting their investigation, the cops placed the mystery guy in a nearby motel.
In the midst of tight security, a mystery man vanishes.
Two guards were stationed at the entrance to guarantee that the mystery guy did not escape. It’s worth noting that the motel room where he was sleeping had just one entrance and exit. The guy, however, departed the following morning, much to everyone’s amazement. To make things worse, the airport’s security department had lost all of his personal paperwork, including his passport and driver’s license issued by the mystery nation. A search for the guy was undertaken, but it was fruitless. The fact that he was placed in a room high up in the multi-story hotel structure with no balcony bothered investigating police.
Possible Explanations For Taured’s Mystery Man:
There are various theories as to who or what the guy is. The following are some theories:
Interdimensional Being – Time Traveller:
Some speculated that the mystery guy was from Taured, but that the nation was in another world and that he had somehow traveled via a parallel dimension to get at Haneda Airport. Another idea is that the mysterious guy was a time traveler who arrived at the airport by accident.
Many people think the mysterious figure was an advanced alien species who arrived on Earth through another planet.
Some people believe the name “Taured” is a misspelling of Tuareg. The Tuareg are a Berber ethnic confederation with a considerable population. They mostly live in the Sahara, which stretches from far southwestern Libya to southern Algeria, as well as Niger, Mali, and Burkina Faso.
Above all, others argue that the story is really an elaborate online hoax since there is no definitive paperwork and no one knows which airline he flew in on or which hotel he stayed in.
The Truth About The Taured Man:
Surely, when examining this peculiar instance, customs authorities would have produced a record or note. However, there does not seem to be any first-hand or confirming evidence to back up this account. It was, however, referenced in a number of publications, including The Directory of Possibilities, Page 86, and Strange But True: Mysterious and Bizarre People, Page 64, both published in 1981.
