Yuuko Kamiya (八神 裕子 Yagami Yuuko?) is the mother of Tai and Kari.


Much like her daughter, Yuuko has brown hair and eyes. Her hair is always tied in a ponytail and she usually wears an orange apron with a stylized frog on it over her usual set of clothes when preparing meals. In warmer weather, she wears a blue and white striped sleeveless tank top shirt, and light brown cargo shorts. Her signature standard outfit consists of a white or dark purple top, a yellow or cream colored long sleeve one button cardigan sweater, and beige or light blue pants. She goes sockless and her footwear consists of a simple pair of white high heeled sandals when outdoors and in public places. She is normally barefoot in the apartment and other indoor settings, only wearing slippers on a couple occasions.


In the American English dub, there's a recurring gag where she comes up with odd recipes, like beef jerky shakes or fungus cookies. Aside from that, Yuuko is a kind, supportive mother who loves her children. Digimon: The Movie[citation needed]
