About Hana Kimura

Hana Kimura (木村花, Kimura Hana, September 3, 1997 – May 23, 2020) was a Japanese female professional wrestler, who wrestled for the women's professional wrestling promotion World Wonder Ring Stardom. A second-generation wrestler, she was the daughter of former professional wrestler Kyoko Kimura. She was also a cast member on the Fuji Television and Netflix reality television series Terrace House: Tokyo 2019–2020, the fifth installment of the Terrace House franchise. Following a series of suicidal tweets in which Kimura addressed online criticism directed at her from Terrace House viewers, she was found dead in her apartment in Tokyo on May 23, 2020, of a suspected suicide. The release of new Terrace House episodes was suspended as a result of Kimura's death, and Fuji TV later cancelled the season.


On May 23, 2020, Kimura died at the age of 22. At around 4:00 am her mother, Kyoko, found Hana on her bed with a plastic bag covering her head and a container of hydrogen sulfide nearby. Several suicide notes were left behind in her room, one addressed to her mother read "Thank you for giving birth to me." and one attached to the door stated "Toxic gas being generated". Hours earlier, Kimura posted self-harm images and tweeted:
