A Japanese a ghastly apparition (called Youkai in Japanese) who lives in the mountains and is thought to eat people.
Yamanba provides accommodations for travelers who wander in the mountains at night, and at first she dress up as beautiful women and give them meals, but after they were sleeping, Yamanba eats travelers.
