The characters make it clear with their expressions that the bathhouse guest is the worst thing they have ever smelled in their lives. Its very presence rots the furniture.

This scene gives a strong visual consequence of pollution, and by adding a spiritual element to it, gives another reason for sympathy. Environmentalism is referenced again when Haku turns out to be the spirit of the Kohaku River. Chihiro had fallen in the river when she was very small, and he had saved her. She tells him that the river was drained and built over, which is why Haku forgot his name and identity and entered his life of servitude to Yubaba. It is fitting that the beginning of the film is about Chihiro and her family moving to a new home, as the major theme of the film is transition and change.
She starts out petulant and sullen as she hates having to leave her friends behind. And right from the beginning, we see how negligent and foolish her parents are, as they let Chihiro roll around in the backseat without a seatbelt and her father drives around like a maniac! She has her moments of weakness, especially near the beginning when she repeatedly breaks down and cries, but this is a reasonable reaction for her. This is very deliberate, I suspect. And little girls in particular seem to be dismissed and underestimated the most.
Look at the crappy toys they get. The other characters go through a character arc of maturity and change as well, and likely as a result of meeting Chihiro. Haku starts off ambiguously — he confusingly shows great kindness and yet great coldness to Chihiro at the same time. But when he regains his name, and regains his freedom, his cold eyes become warm and affectionate. He starts off as a kind of saviour or guardian to Chihiro, which she repays by being a kind of saviour to him.
Rin, the spirit that Chihiro assists in the bathhouse, very quickly goes from contempt to kindness as she gets to know Chihiro. These three characters who serve as her helpers all have one thing in common — they make a complete arc from rejecting Chihiro to totally embracing her. Chihiro passes by a mysterious stone statue The twin sorceresses, Yubaba and Zeniba, also go through a character transition.
That is such a touchy scene, which made me shed tears the first time I watched it. In this scene their relationship is fully explained, as to what their connection was and how they first met.
Both very detailed and the story holds many debts. However what touched my heart the most, was actually the relationship between Haku and Chihiro.

5 Reasons Why Chihiro and Haku from Spirited Away Will Meet Again
This bond eventually leads to them falling in love, for it was their love for each other that broke Zeniba's spell on Haku. Haku was originally the spirit of the Kohaku River and knows Chihiro because he once saved her from drowning. When the river was destroyed and filled in with apartments, he no longer had a home and went to the spirit world, where he became Yubaba's apprentice. When Yubaba is nearby, Haku is as sharp-voiced and stern to Chihiro as to anyone else.
Both of them return to the bath house, and they say their good-byes at the river which has now been filled in. Haku promises, however, that he and Chihiro would one day meet again as he lets go of her hand and watches her leave to go find her parents.
