窟女 Iwaya Onna (Cave Woman)

In the valley in the Kawamata river in Ise, there was a cave of the height of about 3 meters. In Kanbun years, The person who doubted there was someone in the cave made the raft and went into there. He looked about 30-year-old woman hung there. Her hair pasted to the ceiling. She did not look painful.

He cut the hair down and brought her to his village, and gave water and pour medicine. She came out of delirium and said I am a daughter of the village chief in the Hana village in Mino. She had no memory without it. It was told to Mino people, and many people came there, and received her and returned. No one told why she was hung,or she hung herself.
