Towa (Japanese: トワ Towa) is a character from Celebi: Voice of the Forest.
For more than forty years, Towa has lived in Arborville, at the entry of a forest. Shortly before Sammy walked into the forest and, via Celebi, got sent into the future, Towa told him that if he heard the "Voice of the Forest", he should not move, or else he would be spirited away to another time. She also gave him a loaf of bread as a parting gift, in case he got hungry while in the forest.
In the present time, Ash and his friends were about to enter the same forest, when a much-older Towa and her granddaughter Diana appeared. Again, Towa warned about heading into the forest, claiming it was dangerous. When Ash later returned with an unconscious Sammy to Towa and Diana's home, Towa recognized him as the boy she met when she was younger, citing him as a victim of Celebi's time travel. Sammy in turn remembered her as the young woman he had met only earlier that day.
After Sammy's disappearance, Towa found his sketchbook in the forest and returned it now that he had reappeared. She also explained about Celebi's role as protector of the area and that it lives in a deep spot in the forest called the Lake of Life.
