Hint for 3-color box points to clue on the wall with the 3 and 8. The colors are to match the three characters: 桃 (peach), 栗 (chestnut), 柿 (persimmon). This would end up with pink, brown, and orange.

(NOTE: I use WWWJDIC for looking up kanji and meanings, so errors in translation are highly likely.)

Red key goes to the top drawer of green cabinet.

'Japanese style' means it's a good game, but there's a language barrier

I got a log from the 4 corners safe (window + red&black poster) - it wants to be sawed I think

tried to open color box w/ 3+8 clue plus confections on wall but couldn't make it work

pic in panel matches scroll hanging above pot - buttons not yet active

stuck, might need some translation. definitely need some scissors and a screwdriver.

hello Seraku! and thx for colors!

Ask and ye shall receive - well, sometimes. Got both scissors and SD from that.

More characters in spyglass - @Seraku, what is WWWJDIC? Can you give me a link, or say how to get there?

You should find it if you do a Google/Bing/whatever search. There are a few mirrors, though I think Jim Breen's original is hosted by Monash University.

The next characters appear to be 葉水無文. (I only recognized the second as "water/mizu".) Individually, they are (leaf) (water) (nothing) (sentence). Combined, 葉水 could refer to "watering (plants)" or the name Hamidu, while 無文 could mean "unpatterned/plain".

Google translate produces: "Leaves water without paper"

For reference, the paper with the twelve hiragana characters are as follows:

ご go は ha あ a ぜ ze
と to な na か ka に ni
く ku り ri き ki つ tsu

The spacing suggests this is just a grid of individual characters rather than a sentence. Another clue is probably necessary to make sense of it.

From the characters described above by Seraku, I referenced them with the 12 numbers listed on the flip chart. I got 3 numbers for the cb below the window.

That gave me a chisel to use on the piece of wood, and 4 more characters.

The 花鳥風月 clue matches with the note by the screen and does with the drawer with the directional arrows. はな is 花, とり is 鳥, かぜ is 風, つき is 月.

(the characters described at 10:53)

葉水無文 doesn't need to be translated, just match the characters with the month number in the calendar of sweets by the door. 3 digits.

葉水無文 matches 3 numbers from flip-chart right of door, used below window.

Last puzzle that opens the door is impossible without translation or Japanese knowledge. It's 平安京.

Ah... it seems 794 is a reference to the year in which the capital was moved to Heiankyou (now Kyoto).


(I'm very bad at matching these characters - I have to memorize their parts and then glare at them a while before I can see it)

Must go to bed - thanks Seraku, Peggy et al., teamwork is a pleasure :)

I thought I recognized the month marker, but I had only ever seen the months numbered, so that was confusing. Those are the traditional names for the months: Hazuki ("Month of Leaves"), Minazuki ("Month of Water"), and Fumizuki ("Month of Books").



Great hints, Seraku and U! I'm out only thanks to you.

Open drawer with arrows according to U's hint at 11:19


wow... I was doing just fine until the last code. That's a whole new level of "barrier" right there lol.
Thanks @U for the hint :)

Independently discovered in color(selection), 4 squares on the corners of the window ,puppet on a log)))

Thanks for the other codes)

It would be a good game, unfortunately the language barrier takes all the fun out for me. It doesn't make it a bad game of course - just not one I can enjoy :(

my words bio...
