1.1 Agree to begin searching for Kafei
Enter the Mayor’s Residence at 10:00am on the First Day. Speak to Madame Aroma in the Drawing Room and agree to search for her missing son, Kafei. Madame Aroma will give you Kafei’s Mask to help you in your search.
1.2 Speak to Anju and schedule a meeting
Speak to Anju, the woman behind the counter at the Stock Pot Inn, while wearing Kafei’s Mask after 2:18pm on the First Day. Anju will then tell you that she has a clue that will aide in your search. However, she doesn’t want to talk about it right then; instead, she asks you to meet her in the kitchen of the Stock Pot Inn at 11:30pm.
1.3 Attend the secret meeting with Anju
Meet with Anju in the kitchen of the Stock Pot Inn at 11:30pm, as she requested. If you aren’t able to open the front door of the Stock Pot Inn, you can still get inside by using the door on the roof. You need to use the Deku Flower in East Clock Town to reach the roof.
Speak to Anju while wearing Kafei’s Mask. She will tell you that she received a letter from Kafei. Anju has prepared a letter to send to Kafei. She asks that you deposit the letter in a mailbox and then meet Kafei on the Second Day because she is too frightened to do it herself. Agree to her request to receive the Letter to Kafei.
1.4 Mail Anju’s letter to Kafei
Deposit the Letter to Kafei in any mailbox in Clock Town before 6:00am on the Second Day.
2.1 Meet Kafei in the Curiosity Shop backroom
If you follow the Postman on the Second Day, you can watch him deliver the Letter to Kafei. He delivers it to a young boy wearing a mask at the Laundry Pool just before 4:00pm. After the Postman delivers the letter, follow the boy inside the door at the Laundry Pool.
Once inside, follow the stairs and speak to the mysterious masked kid. He will mention that Anju wrote about you in her letter, and specifically mentions that you are looking for Kafei. He will then ask you to keep a secret. Agree to keep the secret, and the masked boy will reveal himself to be Kafei!
Kafei will then explain plight: he was turned into a child by “a strange imp wearing a mask”, but is hiding because the mask he made for the wedding ceremony was stolen by some “prancing man with a grinning face”. Kafei will then give you the Pendant of Memories and ask you to deliver it to Anju.
Before you leave, speak with Kafei one more time to learn about the building. He is living in the backroom of the Curiosity Shop so that he can spy into the store to see if the thief shows up.
2.2 Deliver the Pendant of Memories to Anju
Quickly travel back to the Stock Pot Inn and give the Pendant of Memories to Anju. If you don’t deliver the Pendant of Memories before 12:00pm on the Third Day, Anju will evacuate Clock Town and you will be unable to proceed. If you deliver the Pendant of Memories in time, Anju will stay in Clock Town and wait for Kafei to return.
3.1 Return to the Curiosity Shop backroom
The door to the Curiosity Shop backroom will unlock again at 1:00pm on the Third Day. Enter the backroom and speak to the Man from Curiosity Shop. He will explain that Kafei saw the thief in the Curiosity Shop on the night of the Second Day; a regular customer named Sakon who lives in Ikana Canyon.
The Man from Curiosity Shop will then give you the Keaton Mask and ask that you deliver the Special Delivery to Mama to Madame Aroma, Kafei’s mother.
3.2 Deliver the Special Delivery to Mama
Option 1: Have the Postman deliver the letter
Option 2: Deliver the letter yourself
3.3 Infiltrate Sakon’s Hideout
Sakon’s Hideout is at the southern end of Ikana Canyon, but the doorway is impenetrable. The only way to get inside is to wait for Sakon to open the door when he returns home. Kafei is already at Ikana Canyon waiting for Sakon to arrive, but he needs your help to successfully infiltrate Sakon’s Hideout. Sakon will open the Hideout door at 7:00pm on the Third Day; you need to arrive before that time.
Arriving on time can be a little tricky if you have not activated the owl statue in Ikana Village. If you are able to warp to Ikana Village, use the Song of Soaring to quickly arrive at your destination. If not, you’ll have to ride Epona from Clock Town to Ikana Canyon; the Inverted Song of Time is very helpful.
When you reach Sakon’s Hideout, you will find Kafei hiding behind a rock nearby. You need to hide behind the rock with Kafei until Sakon arrives. If Sakon sees you, he will run away and you will be unable to infiltrate the Hideout.
When Sakon opens the Hideout, Kafei will run inside; follow him.
Inside Sakon’s Hideout, Kafei will immediately locate his mask, but he carelessly steps on a switch as he walks forward to grab it. The switch turns on a conveyor belt that slowly moves the mask toward a hole in the back of the Hideout. You have a limited amount of time to reach the other side of the Hideout and retrieve the mask before it falls out of reach.
For this segment, you will alternate between playing as Link and Kafei. As Link, you defeat enemies to open Kafei’s door; as Kafei, you step on switches that change the speed of the conveyor belt and open Link’s door.
Retrieve the Sun Mask
After Kafei retrieves his mask, use the Song of Soaring to warp to Clock Town. It will be after midnight on the Third Day; there is very little time left before the Moon falls.
3.4 Witness Kafei and Anju’s reunion
Return to the Stock Pot Inn and enter the Employees-Only Room at the top of the stairs. There, Anju will wait for Kafei to arrive.
At 4:00am, Kafei will enter East Clock Town and run into the Stock Pot Inn. He will rush into the Employees-Only room and be reunited with Anju.
Kafei and Anju then exchange vows; Anju’s Moon Mask and Kafei’s Sun Mask will combine to create the Couple’s Mask.
With less than an hour until the Moon crashes into Clock Town, our quest to reunite these two lovers comes to an end. Play the Song of Time to warp back to the Dawn of the First Day.
