Yuki-Onna Picture

Yuki Onna (雪女, snow woman) is a spirit or yōkai in Japanese folklore. She is a popular figure in Japanese literature, manga, and animation. Yuki-onna appears on snowy nights as a tall, beautiful woman with long black hair and red lips. Despite her inhuman beauty, her eyes can strike terror into mortals.
