So, basically, this game has 3 phases.

Pre, Main and Post event. Every phase has some steps to follow which will take you towards the next step and end. Let’s see each phase one by one.

Pre Main Event

So this phase begins as well as ends at midnight only. Read all the steps properly before starting. Here it goes :

  • Begin at night, just before you sleep.
  • Remove your clothes.
  • Enter the bathroom.
  • Fill the bathtub with water and turn off the lights.
  • Climb and sit down into bathtub facing the taps.
  • Close your eyes and start washing your hair. Close your eyes, you read that right?
  • As you start washing your hair, start saying this phrase “Daruma-San fall down, Daruma-San fall down”
  • Do not stop repeating the phrase till you’re done with your hair wash and do not open your eyes.
  • Now, if you’re doing it properly you’ll get a mental image of Japanese woman standing in bathtub then she’ll fall badly and her face will be on tap with her right eye popping out.
  • There are chances that you may hear some voices or feel something in your tub itself, Do not turn back and do not open your eyes.
  • Now, Ask the question “Why did you fall into the bathtub?”
  • Leave that question there only. Keeping your eyes close stand carefully and step out of that bathtub.
  • Come out of that bathroom and close the door.
  • Open your eyes now, Do not turn on any lights and without thinking anything just go to sleep.
  • The first phase ends here!

Main Event

  • Wake up at your own usual time and the game starts again.
  • Start and go with a day like every day. You’ll constantly feel someone following you but when you’ll see back, there’ll be nothing. Though if you see on your right side, you’ll get her glimpse few times (She’ll be having black tangles hair and only one eye)
  • She may try to come really close to you sometimes. Whenever that happened, that she’s too close to handle. Just shout “TOMARE” Means “Stop” and run away fast. It’s important to maintain some distance between you and her. Don’t let her catch you.
  • While you’re in this phase, you should be little more conscious and focused. Keep your side eye on her always.

Post Main Event 

  • Do this before midnight.
  • Stare and as you get her glimpse shout “Kitta” i.e “I cut you loose” While swinging your arm in downward position as if you’re cutting something by your own hand. (Take your hand as a chopper)
  • If you’re successful in this part, She’ll leave and you’ll feel relax.
  • And if not, Run away fast!

Some Important Points To Remember

  • She is very fond of Dark places and also places with water. So that day avoids going to such places to prevent the mishappening. Try to be a little more attentive.
  • Don’t be much alone for that day
  • “Tomare” sound should not be used again and again as after some attempts it’ll stop working, So use it when you feel it’s the only option left with you.
  • You should always end this game before midnight otherwise she may catch you.
  • If you fail to end this game, she may come into your dream and scare you.
  • The ending is not that easy though, she’ll hide if she gets to know that you’re going to end the game. You should see her while saying the word “Kitta”
