Yuki Onna is a spirit in Japanese folklore. She appears as a woman wearing a white kimono on snowy nights. The stories vary: sometimes she is a vampire, draining the life force from men. Other times, she takes the lives of unlucky travelers who freeze to death in the cold. Still other times, she represents the silence of the winter. In any case, if you see her in the night, prepare yourself for a one-way journey to the hereafter.
