Biography[edit | edit source]
Nothing is known about Mikoto's early childhood, but she mysteriously disappears while playing Demon Tag with friends. When she was young, she and her parents moved into Himuro Mansion. Mikoto made many friends in the nearby area, who would visit to play games all over the mansion. One day, Mikoto brought her father a strange camera that was given to her by a strange girl in a white kimono. Her father didn't believe her, and figured she must have found it somewhere in the mansion. Her mother Yae Munakata (Mikoto's mother) took the camera, and began taking pictures of Mikoto and the other children playing, but what she captured on film frightened her. Along with Mikoto and her friends, the images the camera took showed frightening images that weren't there, including one picture of Mikoto with a young girl in a white kimono.
On June 24, while the children were playing Demon Tag in the mansion, all of them vanished. Mikoto reappeared in the woods, led away from the mansion by the mysterious little girl in the white kimono. This also saved her from the fate of her friends, who were ultimately snatched up and killed by the Long Arms ghost in the mansion. She is left with no memory of what happened to her or her friends, and arrives to learn her father and mother are dead. Mr. Hinasaki, a friend of Ryozo Munakata, offers to take care of Mikoto. She took the camera from Himuro Mansion with her. Many years later, Mikoto marries (her husband's name is unknown) and she comes to have a daughter of her own, whom she names Miyuki Hinasaki.
