Tomie Kawakami (富江) is the antagonist as well as the protagonist of the Tomie  movie and manga franchise.

Tomie can be seen as a living embodiment of lust, jealousy, greed, envy and wrath. Tomie is the ultimate self-destructive entity, yet she survives anything. She is identified by a mole under her left eye. She possesses an undisclosed ability to make anyone fall in love with her. Through sleight of hand, or emotional manipulation, she drives these men into jealous rages that inevitably lead to brutal acts of violence. Men kill each other over her; and girls are sometimes driven to jealous rages as well. Tomie is inevitably killed time and again, only to regenerate. There are no ways to kill her permanently. Tomie will go on forever in this way. She is played by a different actress in each film. As such, this changing roster of faces has allowed for a range of interpretations and subtle shading to the part, the most popular being Miho Kanno, Miki Sakai and Miu Nakamura. Miho Kanno was Junji Ito's own personal choice for the role.
