Japanese - An apprentice of Mosaku. Husband of Yuki. The phantom, Yuki-Onna appeared while Minokichi and his master slept. She killed Mosaku with her icy breath but spared the younger man. Later, in the form of Yuki, a beautiful maiden, she met and married Minokichi and they had ten children. He finally realised that she was the one who had killed his master, whereupon Yuki disappeared in a cloud of cold mist, never to return. Also called Minokichi.
