Continuity mistake: Kamaji bangs the work surface, causing a chopstick to fall to the floor, but in a following shot both chopsticks are back in the bowl.

Continuity mistake: After Chihiro pulls the rope to let the water pour onto the large stink spirit, she falls in the tub, and then it goes to a view of the water pouring on the spirit, however the rope isn't in the shot, yet should be visibly dangling down.

Continuity mistake: To the right of Kamaji on the wooden decking, there are two folded purple sheets on top of each other, clearly visible in the overhead shot when he yells "You sootballs got a problem?! Now get back to work!" However, when Chihiro and Lin leave and Chihro thanks Kamaji, when he says "Good luck," you can see that it is now a purple sheet on top of a blue sheet.

Continuity mistake: After pulling the rope to let the herbal water in, Chihro falls off of the side of the bathtub, onto the floor, and you can see two brooms leaned up against the side of the tub. Then, when No-face drops the herbal soak tokens, there is a wide shot of Chihro, and the brooms are gone.

Continuity mistake: When Sen is trapped in the cushions with Yubaba's baby, the cushions around her change colours from wider shots to close ups.

Continuity mistake: When Chihiro first speaks with Yubaba, Yubaba puts a bag of coins into a box, and closes the lid. She then lights a cigarette and starts smoking. Then in the wideshot, when she blows out smoke and starts cackling, the lid to the box she closed is now open.

Continuity mistake: When Chihiro is preparing the bath for the intruder, the rope attached to the water pipe disappears when she sees the faceless ghost.

Continuity mistake: When Zeniba is talking to Sen (who is kneeling beisde dragon Haku) in front of the tiled flooring, between shots a whole row of tiles completely disappears.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: In many closeups of Haku (like near the scene where he gets chased by paper) he has green eyes. But when he wakes up (in the scene with Zaniba turns Bou into a mouse), he has brown eyes.

Deliberate mistake: When her father jumps on the brakes, they lock up, even though the car is supposed to have ABS, which is supposed to prevent this from happening.

Continuity mistake: When Chihiro talks to Kamaji about taking the train to see Zeniba, she says "Yep, I'll walk back along the tracks," and turns around, and the little mouse and bird are sitting on her left shoulder. It then cuts to a wideshot of Chihro walking over to Haku, but now the mouse and little bird have vanished from her shoulder.

Continuity mistake: When Chihiro stands on the black slug that comes out of Haku, the black stain left on the floor is a distorted mess. However when the sootballs run over to the stain, it is now a perfectly formed footprint.

Factual error: At the start of the film Chihiro's father slams on the brake to avoid the statue in the road and quickly stops. There are three pedals, meaning that this is a manual transmission car, but he only puts his foot down on the brake and doesn't touch the clutch. Whilst he would stop, there was not enough time for the car to stop as quickly and as smoothly as it did. The car would also stall out but it doesn't.

Continuity mistake: When Chihiro is eating with Zeniba, her slice of cake is only visible in closeups.

Plot hole: When her father is taking the "shortcut" he somehow doesn't need to shift gears even though he has a manual transmission. At the speed he was at he should be in at least 2nd gear.

Trivia

The idea of having the bath house workers clean the river spirit in the bath house came from an experience Hayao Miyazaki had (when he was younger) where he helped clean a polluted river, and one of the items that was removed from it was a bicycle.
