A heavy-drinking middle-aged lady in room #1 of Ikkoku-kan. Whenever a party starts (in other words, every night) she starts dancing and nothing can stop her once she does so. Aside from the fact that she's a party animal, she is typical of her age: in one word, nosy. When she still didn't know that Kyoko was a widow, she was trying very hard to arrange an ``omiai'' (a formal introduction to another person, in the hopes they would develop a relationship and marry each other) for Kyoko. Once she realized that Kyoko was serious about Godai, she tried to be their counselor. Her husband, a very timid man, accidentally married her when he was trying to get a relationship going with a somewhat more attractive lady. Yet he and Hanae are a well matched couple, easily winning a ``three-legged obstacle race'' during a PE meeting of Kentaro's school. Her son, Kentaro, is tired of the lunacy his mother creates, and believes that Kyoko is the only sane person in that crazy apartment. Though he is attracted to Ikuko, he still can't say that he likes her (after six years).
