Excerpt from Kotto, Being Japanese Curios: With Sundry Cobwebs

Near the village of Kurosaka, in the province of Hoki, there is a waterfall called Yurei-Daki, or The Cascade of Ghosts. Why it is so called I do not know. Near the foot of the fall there is a small Shinto shrine of the god of the locality, whom the people name Taki-Daimyojin; and in front of the shrine is a little wooden money-box - saisen-bako - to receive the offerings of believers. And there is a story about that money-box.

One icy winter's evening, thirty-five years ago, the women and girls employed at a certain asatoriba, or hemp-factory, in Kurosaka, gathered around the big brazier in the spinning-room after their day's work had been done. Then they amused themselves by telling ghost-stories.
