In Japanese folklore, Hitodama are balls of light or fire that float in the middle of night. They are said to be spirits of the dead that separated from their bodies roaming near the place of their death. Hitodama can appear as blue, white or read with a tail.
Ectoplasm is a term used for a substance or spiritual residue that exudes from the body of a medium during a seance. The word was first coined in 1894 by psychical researcher Charles Richet. During the 19th￼ century spiritualism movement, many said they witnessed this phenomenon, however they were exposed as hoaxes made from cheesecloth, gauze, etc.
Taka onna were once ordinary women who were not attractive to marry or even find work at a brothel. After death, through jealousy and angry, they transformed into ugly, malicious monsters haunting the red light districts. This yokai appears as an ordinary homely woman wondering back alley ways where they stretch out their bodies several meter height peeking to the windows of brothels. Often the taka onna seeks to scare humans, but some stories say she also looks for lustful young men to devour.
