Since the heights of the Spirited Away characters were not revealed, we used the Hatena Blog’s average height chart for Japanese girls. We applied this to Chihiro Ogino then estimated the other character’s height by placing them beside Chihiro. According to the chart, a newly turned 10-year-old girl has an average height of 4 feet and 6 inches. Hence, Chihiro Ogino is 4 feet and 6 inches tall. When she is near Haku, she is an inch shorter than him. With that, Haku bears a 4 feet and 7 inches height.
Next, Yubaba and Zeniba are twins and share a similar compact and gigantic physique. When they are near Chihiro, the girl reaches their nose. Despite that, they reach up to 6 feet since their hair adds to their height. Another gigantic character is Kamaji, who stands at 8 feet in height. Chihiro only reaches his waist, but he is slouching all the time. If he stands to his full height, he is undoubtedly enormous.
Then, when Chihiro is with Lin, she only reaches Lin’s shoulder; hence, Lin is 5 feet and 6 inches in height. Similarly, Chihiro’s mother, Yūko Ogino, shares Lin’s height as Chihiro only reaches her shoulder as well. On the other hand, Chihiro’s father is the tallest among their family. Yūko only reaches his shoulder. Moving on to No-Face, he has a 1 foot and 1-inch advantage over Chihiro in his normal form.
Here’s another gigantic character that towered over Chihiro. Boh is 7 feet and 5 inches tall since Chihiro only reaches his stomach.
ANALYSIS OF SPIRITED AWAY CHARACTERS’ AGES
As for the characters’ ages, only three characters have an official age. We have read from the Ghibli Fandom Wiki that Chihiro is ten years old while her parents are in their 30s. Yūko is two years younger than Akio’s 35 years of age.
Before we move on to the ancient characters, let’s first recognize those with a human-like lifespan. Lin appears to be in her early twenties as she shares a close bond with Chihiro than with any of the bathhouse workers. Her appearance is also youthful and jolly. Then, Kamaji is estimated to be 50 years old since he said that he’s been collecting railroad tickets for forty years. Lastly, Boh is approximately three years old since he can talk and walk slightly.
Haku may appear as 12 years old in appearance, but he is ancient. He is actually diety, which means he has lived for centuries. As for Yubaba and Zeniba, their age is around 100 years since they are witches. According to Elliot Blackwell from Quora, most witches live up to “many centuries old.” This goes as well to No-Face, who is a yokai. The concept of Yokai has existed in Japan for centuries, as per the Japan Objects website.
