Ittan-momen (一反木綿, "one-tenth hectare of cotton") is a ghostly phenomenon from the folklore of Kagoshima Prefecture in Japan, which flies through the air at night and attacks humans, often by wrapping around their faces to smother them or around the neck to strangle them.
The ittan-momen became well-known throughout Japan as one of the main characters in the comic series Ge Ge Ge no Kitarō.
Ittan Momen has also been featured as an enemy in the video game Izuna: Legend of the Unemployed Ninja, as well as its sequel, Izuna 2.
Ittan Momen was also featured shortly in the movie Hellboy: Sword of Storms

At first glance it seems not so scary...but the more you stare at it...that creepy silence seeps in and the image of it chasing you through the Japanese woods...yeah, I'm out!! -Fitz
