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.

  • Joshinator

    Actually you can go to kafei’s hideout and get the mask and delivery to mama at six am on the third day

  • Tsuks


  • Rob_Wrecks

    Well I probably screwed up cause I stopped the thief and when I got into where Kafei was staying he wouldn’t even talk to me.

  • TwinmoldSorceress

    Fucking agreed.

  • TwinmoldSorceress

    Pretty sure you still get it for free! But, if you don’t, getting 200 Rupees actually isn’t too hard. I usually get the 100 rupees off the roof, then go kill two big Dodongos. Works every time 🙂

  • TwinmoldSorceress

    Yes! It is possible to do both on the same 3 day cycle! Meeting Anju happens right before Midnight, then you can go and deal with the Ghosts at 2 AM. (Or…. Aliens. Whichever works…) Then, you go at 2-4 ish to talk to Kafei, then you run back to Romani Ranch and help Creamia deliver the milk. If you really quickly Soar to Ikana Canyon and use the Stone Mask, you can get the Mask with Kafei and almost Cry Again. I’ve done it before, super fun!

  • TwinmoldSorceress

    That’s possible too. As long as time is slowed down xD

  • TwinmoldSorceress

    The Bow helps. Back away from him when he goes to attack you, then shoot him with the bow. Here’s hoping you have Arrows.

  • Pedro Ferreira

    Is there some kind of glitch that can “ruin” your file? I love this quest so much that I want to do it now, but im afraid im too earlt in it. Is there any problem on doing it before even Great Bay Temple??? (I havent beat that dungeon yet)

  • Fiery

    “Warp to Ikana Canyon and head to the lower area. Go through the dark passage to find a small area.” wtf is that supposed to mean, “Lower area”?!?!

  • Fiery

    What do you feel like when you defeat “Majora”. Uh this is just a cool pic with Majoras mask and Fierce Deity.

  • Tom Castagna

    Jump down from the warp point into the river below. Then climb up onto land (from the dock) and head left. The land and river both go into dark tunnels but stay on land and you’ll run up an incline and find a business deku scrub and a patch of land with two rocks piled next to it. Kafei is behind the rocks. Wait behind them with him until Sakon shows up and opens the secret door to his lair.

  • Leah Barchock

    Did all of this and kafei wasn’t behind the rocks? Why?

  • imortalpan

    Uhh I don’t think the Garo Mask is necessary… I did it on the 3ds version without using it at all. Idk about the N64 version though.

  • Die together, good idea.

  • Why does Skull Kid have to ruin everything in Termina?

  • Weirdo

    You don’t have to step on any switches exept the blue ones

  • Jordan

    nope, i finished it before that temple and it works fine, all you need to have is the garo mask so you can reach ikana canyon, a hookshot, and that’s it

  • Jordan

    you can save your progress though

  • Pedro Ferreira

    I have beaten this game(100%) 2 or 3 months ago, but yet thanks for taking your time for replying! Cheers!

  • Jojux

    You need it to get into the Ikana Canyon. 😀

  • imortalpan

    Oh yeahh forgot about that lol

  • Tanith Kamelot

    I get them off the roof in East Clock Town, then get the room key from the Stock Pot Inn and get the second lot in there.

  • Nathan Zapata

    What if you make all the way to the end of the thief’s hideout,to get the sun mask ? And didn’t stop the conveyor belt to get the mask. And you rewind time to the dawn of the first day. And you go back to Ikana on the final day at 6:00p.m. Only to find Kafei with the Keaton mask on, near the thief’s hideout. And when you speak to him, he says nothing. And the thief never shows up. What then?

  • Nathan Zapata

    And I apparently only saved to where I deliver the letter to mama.

  • Jon Dunn

    You have to repeat all of the steps again, it’s annoying, but has to be done

  • Francesca Kim

    I had already saved the old lady and bought the bomb bag.
    And I had put this quest off for later…Now that I have finished all four giants I was getting really excited to start this quest only to find out that I shouldn’t have saved the old lady…
    Is there absolutely no way other than starting a new file?

  • Nicole White

    It means dont save the old lady in the 3 day cycle

  • Francesca Kim

    ok, thanks!
    I feel stupid…panicked cause since bomb bag stayed even after cycle is reset many times over, it was a permanent thing like finding masks or something
    it got me confused cause the whole quest has to start in the first day morning meaning it would be a whole new cycle anyway…but then they put such an emphasis on not saving lady at midnight to begin with?
    instead of stating it in the beginning as if it was a prerequisite just saying ‘don’t save the lady during this quest cycle’ would have caused less confusion for rookie like me 😉

  • Andrew

    I just cannot do the SUNS MASK! when I got to the end I’m confused!

  • Andrew

    Super confused. X(

  • The Fierce Diety

    I tried an tried and tried on the 3DS it just doesn’t work!

  • The Fierce Diety

    I chose to change my name BTW.

  • The Fierce Diety

    as The Fierce Diety

  • The Fierce Diety

    I really need the suns mask for the last mask!
    (The Whatever mas not the postman hat)

  • Houdini111

    It’s too late for me to tell you now, but the way to do the last room is:
    Run to the very right
    Push the middle block (the furthest right block) down.
    Step on the red switch (ie: go left)
    Push the block to your left to your left. (ie: onto the yellow switch)
    Go left (ie: where the block you just pushed was)
    Push the block below you onto the blue switch.

  • Peyton McKenzie

    I actually did both the postmans hat and got the couples mask in one go ^-^ I thought you said you couldn’t do both?

  • Anon

    You can’t get both the Bottle and the Postmans hat in one go, they each require delivering the letter to Momma in separate ways.

  • Paras Bindra

    Sigh this quest has taken me literally three days and i’ve followed everything but for someone reason Kafei is not showing up at the final hour, causing the moon to crash and reset everything. I’ll have to leave it I guess. No fierce Diety mask for me 🙁

  • Paras Bindra

    One thing I didn’t do again though was talk to the Mayors wife at the very start on the first required event as I thought I wouldn’t have to as I already have her sons mask. Maybe i’ll try that

  • Paras Bindra

    I realised that I had to get the Sun mask again on the second round of doing the quest. Quite obvious really otherwise how else was Kafei going to come back to Clock Town xD Never spent so long on a quest. Complex but it makes you care for the characters so much more in beautiful intertwining Termina.

  • Paras Bindra

    The different times of when to exactly do stuff must be very difficult to figure out alone. I’m in awe of anyone who can complete this game first time, with all the masks without a guide.

  • RandallPoopenmeyer

    Did you save the old woman from Sakon On the first night?

  • RandallPoopenmeyer

    You can still deliver Mama’s Special letter to the Postman after helping Kafei.

  • Paras Bindra

    If I remember correctly, i’m pretty sure I let Sakon steal from the old lady on the first night. I’ve completed the quest since I posted. I just made sure I did absolutely everything again

  • Zelda4life222


  • Zelda4life222


  • Zelda4life222


  • Zelda4life222

  • Zelda4life222


  • Zelda4life222

  • Zelda4life222

    OH MY GODD YES I FINALY GOT IT!!!!!111!!!!

  • Neo

    You need to try harder
    If you get what i mean

  • Nintengamer 648
