Professional Wrestler And “Terrace House” Cast Member Hana Kimura Passes Away At Age 22
Hana Kimura suddenly passed away at age 22. Hana was best known for her role on Netflix‘s Terrace House, as well as her career as a professional wrestler for Stardom Wrestling.
At this time, the cause of death is unknown, however, in the days before Hana’s passing fans were concerned about her well-being.
On May 22, Hana posted alarming images that implied self-harm and addressed cyberbullying that she was facing.
Around 100 frank opinions every day. I couldn’t deny that I was hurt. ‘Die, you’re disgusting, disappear’ – until now, I’ve been the one thinking these things the most. Thank you mom for giving birth to me. It was a life of wanting to be loved. Thank you to everyone who was by my side and supported me. I love you. I’m sorry I’m so weak.
—Hana Kimura, translation by @plantsbby on Twitter
She also posted a picture to her Instagram Stories with a caption that simply read “Sayonara” or “Goodbye“.

I tried to hold my laughter but once she said “I’m so muscle”, I couldn’t hold in the giggle.
That happened a lot around Hana. #HanaKimura pic.twitter.com/LMHZJ5WyZj
