Basan, alternatively referred to as Basabasa or Inuhōō, is a fowl-like bird illustrated in the Ehon Hyaku Monogatari that lives in the mountains of Iyo Province. According to the description on the illustration, it resembles a large chicken and breathes ghost-fire from its mouth. It is described as having a bright red cockscomb and spits an equally brilliant-hued fire. The fire is a cold fire, a glow, and it does not burn.
