A Karakasa (唐傘, karakasa lit. "Paper Umbrella" or 傘おばけ, kasa-obake lit. "Ghost Umbrella") is a type of Tsukumogami, a spirit in Japanese folk legend that originate from inanimate objects. When the objects reach their 100 year anniversary, they become animate. Karakasa are the same thing, except they are umbrellas or parasols. They are depicted to have a single eye, a long tongue overhanging their mouth and a single foot wearing a geta.
