• About this Yokai •

Kasa-Obake. (JP: 傘おばけ) aka (Kara-Kasa-Kozo 唐傘小僧) are probably one of the most famous type of Tsukumogami (JP: つくも髪) yokai - Antiquated well used but neglected, haunted objects that have sprung to life after a long existence of 100 (or so) years.

The Kasa Obake are old lacquered umbrellas which sprung to life. – They now enjoy scaring people rather than keeping them dry. - If you try to use one like an umbrella it instead will lick you all over!! - There are two legged variants, and like other Tsukumogami, enjoy drinking oil, watch out for its big bro: Hone-kara-kasa!

•Early Appearances & History•

Dating back to the Edo Period: The Kasa Obake is said to appear on rainy nights: those that see it, would cower and not be able to move their feet, in other early stories, they'd try to blow you over with a big gust of wind. - Today: it more popularly appears as stock ghost character Childrens Media, an enemy in Video Games & Anime.

Like many Yokai: Kasa-Obake are said to drink Lamp Oil. - The Traditional Techniques used to make paper umbrellas are made with layered washi paper which has been lacquered, coated using oils to increase the strength and weather resistance of the paper. - it checks out as to why they'd like it as a snack!
