Yuki-Onna (雪女, snow woman) are yōkai. They only live in snowy places and are never known to travel long distances, especially not during any seasons aside from winter.
Yuki-Onna is a spirit or yōkai in Japanese folklore. She is a popular figure in Japanese literature, manga, and animation. Yuki-Onna are sometimes confused with Yama-Uba ("mountain crone"), but they are not the same.
