The ameonna as illustrated by Toriyama Sekien.

Ameonna (雨女, "rain woman") is a female spirit in Japanese folklore.

Ameonna is illustrated in Toriyama Sekien's Konjaku Hyakki Shūi as a woman standing in the rain and licking her hand. She is described as a goddess from China's Mount Wushan, who is a cloud in the morning and rain in the evening. She may be considered a rain-bringer for crops.
