1000: O-Iwa-san (Hokusai)

The most famous Japanese ghost-story of all is Yotsuya-kaidan, in which the murdered O-Iwa comes back in the form of a lantern to haunt and torture the husband who killed her.

Wikipedia article on Yotsuya Kaidan

The artist Katsushika Hokusai is best known for his series of 36 views of Mount Fuji, in the bold and simple style of the Ukiyo-e (or "floating world") style. He changed his name several times, so this is only the best-known of his brush names; as is the tradition, Hokusai is his given name (a fact that has plainly confused at least one art reference book).
