This is a true story of a man who had an amazing ability to foretell the future with an accuracy of more than 95%.


In 1903, Nao Deguchi (1836-1918), the founder of Oomoto religion of Japan, predicted the outbreak of the Russo-Japanese war by automatic writing.

One day, Nao was possessed by Shinto God, “Ushitora no Konjin (Golden God of Northeast)”.


Then, Nao began to predict the future by automatic writing using a writing brush.


Her prediction was called as Ofudesaki.


Amazingly, several years before, Nao had predicted that the Sino-Japanese War would break out.


This prediction actually came true.


Thus, Nao became known as a respected psychic medium in Japan in the early 1900s.

In 1893, Golden God gave Nao the prophecy of the outbreak of the Russo-Japanese War as follows.

Rising Tension between Russia and Japan

In 1899, six years after the above prophecy, a violent anti-foreign uprising took place in China by the Militia United in Righteousness (Yihetuan) to oppose to Western colonialism and the Christian missionary activity.


Since many of the members of Yihetuan had been practitioners of Chinese martial arts (Chinese Boxing), they were called as “Boxer” and this uprising as “the Boxer Rebellion”.

Several months after, the participants of the Boxer Rebellion converged on the Chinese capital, Beijing with the slogan “Support the Qing government and exterminate the foreigners.”


The Empress Dowager Cixi supported the Boxers and on June 21, she issued an Imperial Decree declaring war on the foreign powers.

In order to quell the Boxer Rebellion and to relieve the international legations under siege in Beijing, the Russians and the Japanese both contributed troops to the eight-member international force sent in 1900.


Russia had already sent 177,000 soldiers to Manchuria, nominally to protect its railways under construction.

The Eight-Nation Alliance brought 20,000 armed troops to China and defeated the Imperial Army, and arrived at Peking on August 14, relieving the siege of the Legations.


After the Boxer Rebellion, 100,000 Russian soldiers were stationed in Manchuria.


The Russian troops settled in and they had actually strengthened their position in Manchuria, causing the Japanese much anxiety.


Under such a situation, the relations between Russia and Japan was strained to the breaking point.

Japanese Psychic’s Prophecy of the Russo-Japanese War

On 18, April 1901, Deguchi Onisaburo , a spiritual leader of Oomoto visited Katsutate Nagasawa, a Shinto priest of Yamanashi shrine in Shizuoka, Japan.

Deguchi Onisaburo (1871-1948), the greatest psychic of Japan in the early 1900s.

Nagasawa intended to invoke a Shinto God to possess Onisaburo and to ask God the future  relation between Russia and Japan.


Nagasawa and Onisaburo washed hands and rinsed mouth.


Then, they sat face to face before the Yamanashi shrine.


After confirming that Onisaburo was possessed by God, Nagasawa asked him the future relation between Russia and Japan.


The following is the conversation between Nagawasa and Onisaburo.


Will a war between Japan and Russia break out?


Yes, it will.

When will it break out?


This year?

On August this year.


But it will be postponed until February 1904.


The war mood will grow from July 1903.


And the war will break out in February 1904.

Will Japan be able to win this war?

Yes, Japanese will gain a series of victories.


But, seven warships will sink and many soldiers will lose their lives.

So, when will peace come?

Peace will come by September in the second year of war.

The above questions and answers lasted for about two hours.


According to Nagasawa, the divine spirit which possessed Onisaburo at that time was God of a Shinto shrine “Iwashimizu Hachimangū” in Kyoto.

Onisaburo answered to Nagasawa’s question in details from the Russia’s plan of operations to the diplomatic negotiations between Russia and Japan.


Amazingly, Onisaburo answered fluently as if he was actually watching the future.

Fulfilled prophecy of the Russo-Japanese War

In the above prophecy, Onisaburo predicted that the war mood will grow from July, 1903.


Actually, the Russians acquired mining and forestry concessions near the Yalu and Tumen rivers, and then they demanded the lease of Ryongamp’o in Korea in July 1903, which created a backlash in Japan.

At first, the Japanese statesman, Hirobumi Itō (1841-1909) started to negotiate with the Russians, because he regarded Japan as too weak to evict the Russians militarily.

However, the Japanese government realized that Russia was not interested in the Japanese proposal.


Tsar Nicholas II of Russia held the Japanese in contempt as “yellow monkeys”, and he took for granted that the Japanese would simply yield in the face of Russia’s superior power.

Nicholas II (1868-1918), Emperor of Russia. He was convinced that Russia would win.

Then, on October 3, 1904, Russia presented to the Japanese government the counterproposal, which was not acceptable to Japan.


As a result, on February 6, 1904, Japan severed deplomatic relations with Russia and then on 8 February, Japan issued a declaration of war.


Thus, the Russo-Japanese War broke out on February, 1904, just as Onisaburo predicted.


Contrary to the expectation of Nicholas II, Russia suffered multiple defeats by Japan and the Russians were forced into suing for peace.

On the other hand, the Japanese Army suffered heavy casualties.


The number of Japanese Army dead in combat or died of wounds is put at around 59,000 with around 27,000 additional casualties from disease, and between 6,000 and 12,000 wounded.

Finally, Russia was force to accept a humiliating peace and the war concluded with the Treaty of Portsmouth on September 5, 1905, mediated by US President Theodore Roosevelt.

In this way, the peace came by September in the second year of the Russo-Japanese War, just as Onisaburo predicted.

Unfulfilled Prophecy of the Russo-Japanese War

By the way, Onisaburo predicted that the seven Japanese warships would sink.


However, this prediction was not fulfilled.


Actually, the losses of the Imperial Japanese Navy through the Russo-Japanese War were 2 Battleships, 1 Coastal Battleship, 4 Cruisers, 7 Destroyers and 1 Auxiliary Gunboat and thus the total warships sunk were 15.


However, except for this inconsistency, Onisaburo’s prophecy was realized with great precision as shown above.


This is the reason why Japanese spiritual researchers say,

Onisaburo’s prediction has an accuracy of more than 95%

In this way, Onisaburo was really a great psychic.
