Notes A rich landowner intends to tear down a local shrine and other houses to build a brothel. He holds a Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai ceremony during which various tales of yōkai monsters are told, such as the tales of kasa-obake (an umbrella tsukumogami), and a long-necked rokurokubi. However, the landowner omits the purification ceremony at the end to ward off the evil spirit conjured up during the telling of tales, after which the town becomes invaded by monsters
