Hinata “Hina” Urashima (浦島 ひなた Urashima Hinata), also known as Grandma Hina and Granny Hina, is a character from the series Love Hina by Ken Akamatsu and is the grandmother of Haruka, Kanako and Keitaro Urashima. She was originally the landlord and manager of the Hinata-Sou, passing the inheritance on to Keitaro.
Born in 1934 to Keisuke Urashima, Hina presumably inherited the Hinata Inn from her father. Hina had two known children, both married however one, Yoko Urashima, was killed along with her partner. Hina adopted their child, her grandchild, Haruka Urashima, to live with her at the Hinata Inn.
Possessing an adventurous spirit, Hina ran the Inn alongside members of the Otohime Family until her decision to turn it into an all-girls’ dormitory; entrusting the running of the dorms to Haruka and embarking on a world-wide tour of adventure accompanied by her grandchild Kanako Urashima; teaching her the Urashima Style of Jujutsu during their travels.
Sending faxes to Haruka every once and a while, she sent the Real Estate Deed of the complex to Keitaro after learning of his arrival there.
