Hatsuka Hazama (間 初花 Hazama Hatsuka) is a character in Snow Radish Vacation!!. Via her son Shun, Hatsuka is the grandmother of several heroines of days series, most notably Sekai Saionji and Setsuna Kiyoura.
Hatsuka has fair skin along with bright blue eyes. She wears an orange plaid miniskirt along with Mayo-chan hoodie. Her most prominent feature is her long golden hair which is usually tied back with a red ribbon. Her bangs also form two fringes. She seems to have cut her hair shorter the year after Snow Radish Vacation as seen in the photo of her with Kagura Inou and Ms. Nijou.
Hatsuka was a good friend of Kagura as well as a girl from Nijou family. They all studied at Moteharashou and was one of Tomaru's cram students. There, she and several female friends (excluding Kagura) begin to have sexual relationships with Tomaru, but not to the point of intercourse since there isn't enough time. She is the first one to notice that Tomaru had disappeared from Motehara the day after he had raped Kagura, speculating that he might have left to be with his "supposed" girlfriend from the university.
Nine months later, Hatsuka runs away from home to stay with Kagura as her mother goes out with another man after her father died. She is overjoyed to be reunited with Tomaru, causing Kagura to worry that Tomaru might not be able to keep his promise to her since Hatsuka is a very pretty girl.
In the true ending, the Betrothal Party, Hatsuka organizes a party with other girls for Kagura and Tomaru. She also gives her friend a floral wedding veil for her as present. Canonically, she has sex with Tomaru, becomes pregnant, and eventually gives birth to her first son, Shun. She also participated in prostitution organized by Tomaru, alongside Kagura and Ms. Nijou. Hatsuka continues to raise her son alongside other girls' children, but moved away around the time that Tomaru disappeared after taking away the principal of Moteharashou's fortune. She and Kagura are still in contact, and she comes to rescue her when the latter is confined by a teacher. Hatsuka also has two more children, Toki and Kuu, both fathered by Tomaru.
Years later, Hatsuka is reunited with Tomaru again, much to Shun's disgust. After a quarrel, her son leaves home for Haramihama to work during the summer with Kagura.
In the Inori Route, Hatsuka is mentioned by Youko when she is communication with Headquarters over her management of Radish while arguing that even Hatsuka is intrigued with her plan.
Hatsuka was groomed by her biological father to accept parental incest as something natural, also shown on the adultery chart, which shows her having a child by Shun. She was, however, always willing to rescue her friend Kagura, as shown when the latter kidnapped by a Moteharashou teacher.
- Her name Hatsuka (初花) means "First Flower of the Season". It could also be an allusion to Hatsukadaikon (二十日大根), which means garden radish, tying into her family being radish farmers and her association with the Radish franchise.
- The character on Hatsuka's hoodie is Mayo-chan, the mascot of Overflow.
