A white tree spirit from the movie mononoke-hime. Thousands of these things live in the trees and imitate people. They are famous for their strange clicky-sounds. They also make great stuffed animals.

Apparantly, they are the children of the trees. The Kodoma appear when a forest is healthy. When Ashitaka follows a Kodama through the forest, he talks to it and asks if a tree he passes is its mother and comments on the grandeur of the tree.
Also, in the movie, the Kodamas are the characters with the largest varitey in apperance. Not one Kodama is similar to another.
