Questions on Japanese culture, sort of.

I've been playing We Love Katamari and I've noticed one item grouping that keeps popping back up.

Every time I pass by a well, there's like a fifty-fifty chance that there's a ghost in it. And in The Ring, the evil ghost girl comes out of a well. Is there some sort of 'Wells have ghosts' folklore that I don't know about?

And also, the ghosts in this game and also the ghost in Animal Crossing have these little headband things with a triangle in the middle - I've been told this is grave clothing or something, but I don't know the details. Can anyone fill me in?
