Japanese Ghost Stories

The West has Frankenstein's monster, the werewolf, and Dracula. Japan has its own set of monsters/ghosts as well. I came across this site that gives a good run down of different classic Japanese ghost stories. Lots of them are related to love and betrayal, which I find interesting but I am not sure why this theme plays out in quite a few of them.
