Name of a Japanese ghost story

Postby CTN » Sat Oct 01, 2016 6:56 pm

Maybe somebody can help me find the name of a certain "ghost story" about a woman, who has to live in a cave at the beach. She's unable to come back to civilization and force to live off the creatures of the beach (eg. raw dead seagulls). Oh also her face is painted red. I would like to know the significance of it in Japanese folklore.

Your help would be much appreciated.

Obscure. I'm going to visit my son next weekend. I'll ask his mother if there are no suggestions by then.
