Hanako San is a Japanese urban legend about the ghost of a young girl that’s supposed to haunt school toilets, opening and closing doors and scaring anyone who enters the bathroom, knocks on her stall, and calls her name.
Hanako, the ghost in the toilet almost achieved the status of a national phenomena in Japanese legend 20 years ago, when a wave of stories of ghost-sightings swept through the nation’s school yards.
Every child had a “Hanako” story to tell. The stories, of course, are many and varied but every schoolchild in Japan, at one time or another, has stood in dread and anticipation as he or she ventured into the school toilet alone.
This is similar to the legend of Kashima Reiko, a female ghost without legs who also lives in school bathrooms. She calls out “Where are my legs?” when people enter the bathroom. The correct way to answer her varies. In one version, you have to say: Kashima Reiko: KA = Kamen (Mask), SHI = Shinin (dead person), MA=Ma (Demon).
Yet another version features Aoi Manto or Aka Manto, a male ghost who waits in the last stall in the girls’ bathroom. Anyone entering the bathroom hears a voice asking, “Which do you prefer, the red paper or the blue paper?”
If they pick “red,” he kills them by slashing their back or neck repeatedly with a blade, to make them look like they’re wearing a red cape. If they pick “blue,” then they’re killed by hanging.
He’s known as Aka Manto, Aoi Manto, Aoi Hanten, Aka Kami, and Aoi Kami.
Him: Red or blue?
Him: That’s not an option.
Me: I don’t use dyed paper.
Him: *stares and then poofs away*
10/10 out of bathrooms😷
A simple reply to AOI MANTO or AKA MANTO is here as follows:-
Me:- *enters the last stall of bathroom*
Aoi Manto:- Woahhh!!!! u scared the hell outta meeh!
Me:- Whaa…? HOW DARE YOU COME INSIDE THE GIRL’S TOILET?
WHT DO U WANT?
Aoi Manto:- I….i..i…….i..wanted…to…juzz…
Me:- SHUT UP!!?! U CHEAP FELLOW!! HIDING IN GIRL’S TOILET JUST TO STALK GIRLS!!!YOU SHAMELESS IDIOT!!! GONNA KICK UR A## OUT! (please excuse my language) *punches him hard on face and knocks him dead*
Me:- That’s the correct punishment for such shameless ghosts! geez….ghosts these days…

Hanako: Where are my legs?
Me: How am I supposed to know?
Hanako: Jeez I was just asking.
Me: Then go ask someone else.
Hanako: Ok boss, Bye Felicia!
Me: Bye Felicia! Jeez i’m glad I got rid of her.
TOLIETS …… JAPAN again?
Ghost: WHERE ARE MY LEGS??
Me: Yeah. BYE
What’s with all these Japanese ghosts in bathroom stalls? The last one is also tricky. Aoi Manto: Which do you prefer, the red paper or the blue paper? Me: Umm *continues to stand there* Me: None Aoi Manto: *looks at me with confusion* Me: Well, now that I answered your question, I’m just gonna, ya know…leave *runs out*. Lol xD
What is it with Japanese spirits and bathrooms? Just WTH?!
Why oh why that Japanese ghosts love bathrooms with stalls.
There was also a school with a slide in the play ground that hanako san cursed and if your hand matches the hand print she left on the slide you will die
