On May 23, 2020, Kimura died at the age of 22.

Her body was discovered by her mother, Kyoko, at around 4:00 am. Hours earlier, Kimura posted self-harm images and tweets.

Nearly 100 frank opinions every day. I couldn’t deny they hurt me. “Die”, “you are disgusting”, “you should disappear” I believed these things about myself more than they did. Thank you, Mother, for the gift of life. My whole life I wanted to be loved. Thank you to everyone who supported me. I love you all. I’m sorry for being weak.
- Hana Kimura, Twitter

Her last Instagram stories and photo were posted with her cat and a caption in Japanese translated as “Good-bye. I love you, have fun and live a long time. I’m sorry.”
