Anju & Kafei Quest

Many of the events of the Anju & Kafei Quest are completely optional. This guide will cover all of the events, specifying which ones are optional and which ones are required. From a story perspective, it’s nice to see the entire quest play out, including some of the challenges that each character is going through within their life.

Requirements -Epona’s Song -Hookshot -Garo Mask -Romani Mask -YOU MUST NOT SAVE THE OLD WOMAN ON THE FIRST NIGHT! -If you are playing the Nintendo 64 version, be sure you have at least an hour or so of spare time as this is a time-consuming quest. Due to the changes to the Song of Double Time on the Nintendo 3DS, this will take a considerably shorter amount of time on the 3DS version.

Required Event #1 Day 1 – 10am to 12pm Location – Mayor’s Residence

Go to the Mayor’s Residence in East Clock Town. Inside, enter the door on the right and speak with the large woman woman in the yellow dress, named Madame Aroma. She’s Kafei’s mother, and her son has recently gone missing. You are just so dashing and admirable that she hires you to find him, giving you Kafei’s Mask.

Optional Event Day 1 – 11am to 11:30am Location – Mayor’s Residence

In the Mayor’s Residence in East Clock Town, you can witness a conversation between Madame Aroma, Toto, and Gorman, the leader of the Gorman Traveling Troupe. Additionally, you can enter the back room and go behind the curtain to read Kafei’s diary, in which he talk about his excitement over the wedding ceremony masks he and his betrothed (Anju) are making.

Optional Event Day 1 – 12pm to 12:15pm Location – Stock Pot Inn

At the Stock Pot Inn, Anju makes lunch for her grandmother. You can witness a conversation in which her grandmother claims she’s already eaten and fakes being senile. In reality, she doesn’t want to eat Anju’s terrible cooking. To further prove this, you can also read Anju’s grandmother’s dairy, which is on the table.

Optional Event Day 1 – 2:10pm Location – Stock Pot Inn

At the Stock Pot Inn in East Clock Town, the Postman will deliver a letter to Anju, from Kafei.

Required Event #2 Day 1 – 1:50pm – 3:50pm Location – Stock Pot Inn

Technically this event is not totally required, but it does make things a bit easier. It also allows you to see a relevant cut-scene. After cooking for her grandmother, Anju will return to the counter. Wear the Goron Mask and speak to her anytime before 3:50pm. She will confuse you with a Goron of the same name and she will give you the Room Key. You now have access to the “Knife Chamber” which has a chest containing a silver rupee (100). Furthermore, you are now able to enter the Stock Pot Inn from the front door after hours. NOTE: You can enter the Stock Pot Inn at nighttime by using the Deku Flower just outside and entering the Inn from the second floor.

Optional Event Day 1 – 4:10pm Location – Stock Pot Inn

A Goron with your name will come to claim his reservation. You can witness his conversation with Anju at the Inn. Since you just claimed the reservation, the Goron will be relegated to sleeping outside. Poor guy. Although he does say it’s nice weather and doesn’t mind.

Required Event #3 Day 1 – 2:10pm – 8pm Location – Stock Pot Inn

After the Postman delivers the letter from Kafei, speak with Anju while wearing Kafei’s Mask. She’ll ask you to meet her later that night in the kitchen.

Required Event #4 Night 1 – 12am – 6am Location – Stock Pot Inn

Meet with Anju in the kitchen of the Inn to get the Letter to Kafei. If you didn’t get the Room Key earlier, you can get into the Stock Pot Inn by using the Deku Flower outside and getting on top of the veranda to access the unlocked door.

WARNING!!!!! – In order for this quest to work, you must NOT give any letters to “???” inside the toilet in the Stock Pot Inn or stop Sakon in North Clock Town at 12:00 AM.

Required Event #5 Night 1 or Day 2 – 12am – 9am Location – Clock Town

Go to any mailbox in Clock Town and put the letter inside. The Postman will come pick it up when he does his rounds at 9am.

Required Event #6 Day 2 – 3:10pm – 3:50pm Location – Laundry Pool

Go to the Laundry Pool in Clock Town and wait until 3pm. The Postman will come ring the bell to deliver the letter to Kafei. Kafei will come out of the house and collect the mail. While he’s distracted, run inside of his house and wait for him.

Required Event #7 Day 2 – 4:10pm – 6pm Location – Laundry Pool

Speak with Kafei inside his house to learn that he was transformed into a child by Skull Kid, then had his Sun Mask stolen from him by Sakon the Thief.

He’ll then give you the Pendant of Memories. If you talk to him again after this, he’ll let you stand on the crate and look through the spyglass into the Curiosity Shop (where he’s waiting to see the thief that stole his wedding mask).

Required Event #8 Day 2 or Day 3 – 10am – 7pm Location – Stock Pot Inn

After you exit Kafei’s Hideout, go back to the Inn and give the Pendant to Anju. Now that she has the Pendant, she will not flee Clock Town on the final night.

Optional Event Night 2 – 9:30pm – 11pm Location – Stock Pot Inn

If you stole the room reservation from the Goron and you also gave Anju the Pendant on the second day, you can go to your room upstairs and listen through the rundown wall. Anju is arguing with her mother about staying and waiting for Kafei.

Optional Event Night 2 – 12:30am – 1am Location – Curiosity Shop

Go to the Curiosity Shop on the second night to witness a short clip in which Sakon the Thief sells the Bomb Bags he stole. Since Kafei is able to see into the Curiosity Shop, he can see Sakon the Thief and is able to follow him to his hideout. This is also why you were are not suppose to save the Old Woman on the first night, otherwise Sakon will never come to the Curiosity Shop to sell the Bomb Bag and Kafei would never be able to locate Sakon’s Hideout.

Required Event #9 Day 3 – 12pm – 6pm Location – Laundry Pool

Go back to Kafei’s hideout at the Laundry Pool in Clock Town. Inside, you’ll find the Curiosity Shop Owner. Talk to him to get the Keaton Mask and to also get a Special Delivery to Mama.

Required Event #10 Night 3 – Just after 6pm Location – Ikana Canyon

Warp to Ikana Canyon and head to the lower area. Go through the dark passage to find a small area. Kafei is hiding behind a rock, waiting for Sakon to appear. Hide with Kafei, then use the Song of Double Time to make it night. Sakon will then appear and slowly make his way towards the entrance. Stay behind the rock and DO NOT allow him to see you! Once the thief enters his hideout, Kafei will follow him inside. Once you gain control of Link, follow Kafei inside where you will work alongside him to get back his wedding ceremony mask.

Inside, you will play as both Link and Kafei. As Link you will kill enemies to open doors and as Kafei you will step on switches to change the conveyor belt speed and open doors.

  1. Link: Step on the blue switch.
  2. Kafei: Push a block onto blue switch.
  3. Link: Defeat the Deku Baba.
  4. Kafei: Avoid the red switches as it speeds up the conveyor belt. Step on the yellow switches to slow down the conveyor belts. Step on the Blue switch.
  5. Link: Defeat two Deku Babas.
  6. Kafei: Briefly step on the red block and push the large block so that it is sitting on the yellow block. Then push the adjacent block down onto the blue switch.
  7. Link: Defeat the Wolfos.
  8. Kafei: Pull the block out of your way if you need to in order to reach the door. Step on the switch.
  9. Link: Step on the switch.

At the end, Kafei will get back the Sun Mask. He will then run back to town. Soar over to Clock Town.

Required Event #11 Night 3 – After 6pm Location – Latte Milk Bar

Note: You don’t need to acquire the Sun’s Mask with Kafei to complete this part of the quest. Unfortunately you cannot do both this event and event #12 in the same cycle, so you will have to do the entire quest twice to get all of the items.

Go to the Latte Milk Bar in East Clock Town (next to the Inn, you’ll need the Romani Mask to enter). Speak to Madame Aroma while wearing Kafei’s Mask. Fork over the Special Delivery Letter to get the last Bottle.

Required Event #12 Night 3 – After 6pm Location – Post Office

Note: Unfortunately you cannot do both this event and event #11 in the same cycle, so you will have to do the entire quest twice to get all of the items.

Bring the letter to the Post Office in West Clock Town at 6pm (as opposed to helping Kafei in Ikana Canyon). Give it to the Postman and he’ll have to deliver it.

Follow him to the Latte Milk Bar. After a bit, he’ll come out and stand near the exit for a short moment before running away from town. Speak with him to get the Postman’s Hat.

Required Event #13 Night 3 – 4:30am Location – Stock Pot Inn

In the final hours, when there is only 1:30 left, return to the Stock Pot Inn.

Enter the Employee’s Only Room (the door at the top of the stairs that’s otherwise always locked). If you previously gave Anju the Pendant of Memories, she will be waiting for Kafei.

If you saved the Sun’s Mask with Kafei, he will appear at the Inn with just over an hour left. Anju and Kafei will combine their masks at long last. After the ceremony, they will give you the Couple’s Mask and wait to die together. So sad! Play the Song of Time.

The first time through, do all of the regular events, help Kafei in Sakon’s Hideout, then deliver the Letter To Mama yourself (event #11). After that, do the whole quest through just focusing on the letters. Once the man from the Curiosity Shop gives you the Letter To Mama the second time, instead of helping Kafei, just play the Song of Double Time to skip to the final night and enter the Post Office in West Clock Town to give it to the Postman.

  • None Of Your Business


  • Pika-boy

    Saving the Deku Princess kinda happens at the same time as beating Odolwa,plus, like Niko24x said, defeating Goht calms the Elder’s son (just make sure you win a Goron Race for him), and I’m not sure about Pamela’s father cause I’ve gotten only to the Bird Statue in Ikana Canyon (and no further), but I was totally planning on doing this and being the ultimate hero. Just make sure to get the Fierce Deity Mask on the moon!

  • Pika-boy

    She ALSO said, “In the 3DS version…while (key word:WHILE) in the N64 version…” But, just trying to be helpful, the second time she typed “Anju” she spelled it “Anu.” Be careful about little things like that, RedAgent14!

  • Pika-boy

    Totes agree!!!

  • Pika-boy

    You’re right, you escort Romani’s sister (what’s her name again?) on the 2nd night.

  • Pika-boy

    You coulda’ just edited it…

  • Pika-boy

    It sucks to have to go back and re-do the quest just for the bottle/hat… :(

  • Pika-boy

    Gilded sword ROCKS!!!!!!!!! (so do Gorons and a select few Zoras…heh…)

  • Pika-boy

    Yeah, look at Blue Tomahawk’s reply to BigKlingy’s question…just make sure to slow time down!

  • Tyrus Bachar

    He’s actually talking about events 10 and 12.

    He was confusing 10 with 11.

  • MithrandirOlorin

    This and the Romani Ranch stuff are my favorite parts of the game. Is it theoretically possible to do all of both on the same 3 day cycle? I already have everything I can get from the Ranch, I just like doing it all again to get a hug.

    • MithrandirOlorin

      Looks like I’ve deduced this to be a yes. But it gives you small windows to deliver the pendent to Anju. The time to get it to hear before doing back to the Ranch to meet Cremia at 6:00 is close, and by the time that is over the Inn will be closed. Giving while Anju is sweeping as the best time to do it.

  • MithrandirOlorin

    Better question. I already have the Postman hat. I’ve done parts of this side-quest even though I don’t have access to Ikana yet.

    If I take the Priority Mail to Mama again after getting the Bottle, can I get more free Chateau Romani? If not I’d rather save getting that for free till right before doing the finale.

  • MithrandirOlorin

    Event 8 I have observed can be done as late as when Anju is sweeping on the morning of the 3rd day before the Inn opens.

    Event 9 is required for Link to get all the items he can get out of it. But it logically Kafei should still show up at the Canyon unless there is just something in the game’s coding that says he won’t even though that would make no sense.

    Is it possible to help Kafie get his mask back yet still forget to give Anju the pendent? Cause I’m thinking it’d hilarious to see a scene of Kafei showing up at the inn and Anju isn’t there.

    • Cash120

      You can help get the Sun mask without giving Anju the pendant. Kafei still shows up at the correct time, but with Anju gone, he talks about how she’s safe and how they were going to marry on the Carnival of Time. It’s really sad.

  • MithrandirOlorin

    I have gone and verified for myself that you can get to Sakon’s hideout in time without using the song of soaring.

    After you talk to the Curiosity shop owner and get what you need form him go outside, slow time, put on the Bunny ears and run out of town out the east gate. Summon Epona then ride like the dickens, use the Garo mask and Hookshot. Then return to the Bunny ears till your behind the rocks with Kafei and put on the stone mask. Then skip ahead to night because I still had time to spare.

    • Chris Mango

      Goron mask is even faster! :)

      • MithrandirOlorin

        hmm, cool

  • Kira Lowe

    This quest made me cry so hard. Forget Romeo and Juliet, this is the greatest love story ever told.

  • MarioKart7z

    Well you could play the song of time, OR you could go murder Majora and get the best ending for this story 😀

  • hsrhfg

    I FREAKING forgot to give the Pendant to Anju, AND I HAVE TO DO IT OVER
    1 THING -.- But I’m close to finishing it again :)

    • Mackenzie Robert Forrest Foisy

      I got to the hideout, stupidly stepped on the switches that make the mask go faster and had to do it all over again.

  • Pyritie

    You can do both #11 and #12 during the day — you don’t have to wait until 6pm.
