Kasa Obake (傘お化け, "umbrella ghost"), or Karakasa Obake or Karakasa Kozo, are a type of Tsukumogami, a folk legend about a form of Japanese spirit that originate from objects reaching their 100th year of existence, thus becoming animate. Karakasa in particular are Spirits of Parasols (umbrellas) that reach the century milestone. They are typically portrayed with one eye, a long tongue protruding from an open mouth, and a single foot, generally wearing a geta.

Here's Yokai-John's 5th 1/9th scale Kasa-Obake action figure: made by Yokai-John from White paper and wooden toothpicks, with eye,tongue,eyebrow,lips,teeth and sandal hand-sculpted from air-dry Clay and attached with E-6000 by Yokai-John. 1/9th scale plastic toy male leg(from Emce toys) and two female arms(from Emce toys) attached to figure with E-6000 by Yokai-John .Yokai-John hand-painted the entire figure with acrylics and sealed with ModPodge adhesive sealant.
