This month’s urban legend is one of many niche legends out of Japan: bathroom or toilet ghosts. So who is Hanako-San, and why is she doomed to spend an eternity in a bathroom stall?

Let’s explore. Yōkai and Yūrei Before we get into the specific legend of Hanako-San, we need to get into the folklore traditions of Japan to lay the foundation.

Of course, I must note that I am in no way an expert on Japanese folklore or culture. There are many excellent resources out there if you’re interested in learning more about yōkai, yūrei, and Japanese folkloric traditions from native Japanese persons and experts.

The following explanation is based on my own research. Hanako-San is considered a yōkai or a yūrei. While there is no simplistic and universally accepted definition of yōkai, the term is basically a blanket that covers supernatural phenomena, monsters, demons, and other types of spirits that are seen in Japanese folklore.

Yūrei are essentially ghosts, or spirits of the deceased trapped within the earthly realm. The main difference between yōkai and yūrei (to my basic understanding) is that yūrei are tied to individuals that were once hanako san, and yōkai tend to be supernaturally occurring beings. (An artist’s representation of Hanako-San, as seen in “ Gakkou no Hanako san Uwasa Shin: Hanako-san ga Kita!!” via AniSearch) The Legend Descriptions of Hanako-San are relatively uniform across hanako san variations – she almost always is said to be wearing a red suspender skirt with a light colored shirt.

Though it is never explicitly stated, this may be a school uniform, as uniforms are common in Japan. She has black, chin-length hair.

To summon her, one must enter a girls’ bathroom and knock three times on the door of the third toilet stall. Most variations of the summoning state that the bathroom must also be on the third floor.

I find this repetition of threes in the legend very interesting – it’s considered a lucky number in Japan (or, at least, not un lucky). The visitor must then ask if Hanako-San is in the bathroom with them. If she is, the visitor may see a ghostly hand emerge from the stall to pull them into the toilet and into hell. There are three main variations to the legend when it comes to how Hanako-San’s spirit became trapped in the bathroom.

The first, most popular, and most grandiose is that Hanako-San was playing in the school and was buried alive when the building was bombed. Some versions of this origin state that she was playing hide-and-seek in the school, others simply say she was hiding. The second variation of the origin claims that Hanako-San was murdered in the bathroom – either by an abusive parent or unrelated homicidal maniac.

The final variation of Hanako-San’s origin is that she was a young girl that completed suicide in the bathroom due to bullies in her school. Origins This urban legend can be traced back to the 1950s, after the resolution of World War 2. It seems to be one of those stories that verbally gets passed along through word of mouth, either from generation to generation, or through classes at a school.

I can’t find any information regarding its exact point of origin, but that tale of Hanako-San has seemingly become a fixture in school cultures across Japan, and its prominence has only been reaffirmed by Hanako-San’s appearance in pop culture.

She’s been a character in anime, manga, and films, and her tale had a noticeable resurgence in the 1990s because of this. There is even contemporary media, most notably an anime and manga still in production as of the writing of this blog. It’s safe to say Hanako-San is here to stay.

This one doesn’t stem from the United States or anywhere close to it, it comes from Japan and has to do with a bathroom. Yes a ghost in a bathroom…. Supposedly if a girl goes into a bathroom and asks “Are you there, Hanako-san“, will hear a voice answer “ I’m here” and if the person asking chooses to go into the bathroom stall a little girl in a red dress is in there.

She usually asks “ where are my legs?”…. I think I would freak out if I ever witnessed that, how about you? While the legend is still murky as to it’s real history, some say it comes from a WW2 story of a girl that died in a bathroom, she’s forever stuck in some kind of loop.

Other stories say that she died in a bathroom of some kind of accident forever haunting young girls. Do believe this story is true or just some randomly made hanako san story to scare girls in the bathroom?

To find it, you have to knock on the door three times and call the girl’s name. And when you open the door of the stall, you will find a little girl, with the bob haircut, in a red skirt or dress. This girl is no one, she is Hanako san.

She might want to play with a friend. Or she perhaps wants to drag you to hell — through the toilet. She may have a bloody hand and grab you, or she will turn into a lizard that devours you.

And it depends on hanako san place you live in Japan. It is not just a made-up story, it is the legend of Japanese urban. Hanako san: The legend and its variations There is another girl who haunts Japan’s bathrooms named Kashima Reiko.

It was said that Kashima was cut in half by a train. Now her disfigured spirit inhabits bathrooms and asks children at hanako san stalls that where her legs are. The myth is that if Kashima Reiko is not satisfied with their answer, she will rip their legs off. To summon Hanako san, it is often said that individuals must enter a girls’ toilet — usually on the third floor of a school.

Hanako-San is Creepy, What's the Story? Japan is home of countless superstitions of the paranormal and given such rich diversity in these beliefs, there are superstitions surrounding toilet and bathroom hauntings. While there are many of said stories, this particular urban legend is about Hanako-san or sometimes known as Hanako-chan whom haunts female restrooms in schools in this legend called Toire no Hanako-san (トイレのはなこさん).

The Legend This legend has many variations but we will begin with the most popular tale that seemed to have the most claimed accounts for. This story begins when Hanako-san, an elementary school girl was playing hide-and-seek when she was killed by a bombing raid in World-War-II.

It is said that she was hiding in the first stall closest to the entrance of the female restroom on the third floor when this happened. Many have claimed that this very stall opens and closes on its own but in truth what it may really be is Hanako-san’s attempt at luring school girls.

The Elementary School's Washroom Let’s begin by examining an elementary school's washroom, it is notorious for its poor lighting and as a result, children often refuse to use the washroom even in dire emergencies in fear of Hanako-san or other entities that may exist. It is said between the hours of one and three in the morning in the girl’s washroom, if you knock three-times on the first stall closest to the entrance on the third floor of the elementary school and ask if Hanako-san is there (or is done yet), and repeat this to the next stalls; you may hear a response of what seems like an innocent, sometimes scared school-girl.

She calls out to you I’m here or I’m done and the stall door opens just a crack. Japanese Elementary School Washroom Personal Accounts with Hanako-san There are stories where people have opened the stall to see this girl only to be confronted by a three-headed lizard ready to devour them. As frightening as this may be an even more frightful legend exists even more widespread as a belief. It is thought to be as an absolute truth to most children as what you really encounter is the sight of a young innocent school girl with bobbed hair, a burn scar on her face wearing most noticeably a red skirt or dress.

Some say that she is harmless, while others claim to have witnessed first-hand the evil nature behind Hanako-san as she pulls her victim into the toilet, never to be seen again. Toire no Hanako-san by Digital Dolls Alas, we must consider some other accounts and popular beliefs to this legend. In some schools or prefectures some students have claimed to have seen other paranormal activities at the presence of Hanako-san, such as the flickering of the light, opening and closing of bathroom stalls, and blood flowing from the faucets.

In some schools or prefectures, it is believed that Hanako-san may be found in the third stall or in the fourth stall as the number four (shi 死) in Japanese can also mean death. Different Beliefs The Yamagata Prefecture holds a strong legend over this tale and should Hanako-san speak to you in a frightening voice, you are to die at the claws of a three-headed lizard.

Different prefectures believe in slightly different variations on what comes out of the toilet, such as a head, bloody hand, or a large white hand. While these legends slightly differ from school hanako san school, prefecture hanako san prefecture, one thing is known among students… Do not bother Hanako-san or you might not live.

What if You Encounter Hanako-san? What happens if you are unfortunate enough to encounter the legendary haunting of Hanako-san? According to legends, the only way to defeat it is to present perfect grades to it and only then can your life be spared. However one should heed warning, while some believe it can be any perfect grade, it is said that the only method to defeat her is to present perfect grades of an exam.

However, it's also said that it’s impossible to defeat it and once you’re lured in, there’s no turning back. There are also rumors that Hanako-san sometimes plays in the school yard or if you scrape your knee in the hanako san, you might get cursed with a fungal infection that grows mushrooms throughout your leg and body. Some teachers also expand on this by telling their students if they play outside without permission, Hanako-san will curse them hanako san mushrooms.

Hanako-san's Death There are variations between how Hanako-san died, it is most popularly believed that she died from a bomb in World-War-II, but some believe that she was an abused victim driven to suicide, or was murdered at school. In some prefectures, Hanako-san is believed to have died from an unfortunate accident such as falling out of a library window.

The Name Her name originates from the early 50’s when Hanako san was a popular female name which was about when the rumors began. Since then, school children were often forced into the attempt of summoning Hanako-san either for bullying or by means of initiation, while others have tried to summon Hanako-san for pure entertainment.

Art By HAL-2006 Pop Culture and Films Rumors and legends did not just stay in classrooms as these stories have been adapted into various Japanese films such as Hanako (1995), Shinsei toire no hanako-san (1998), Hanako of the toilet (2013), and Hanako and the Terror of Allegory (Manga).

With so many legends, personal hanako san, and films, could the urban legends be true? After all, Toire no Hanako-san is one of the most popular elementary school superstitions in Japan, and perhaps, just perhaps there’s some truth to it? There’s only one way to find out if you dare.
