To sum up, Himuro Mansion is haunted. Novelist Takamine, his editor Ogata

Escaping From Ghosts: Just going through a door won't stop a ghost from
pursuing you. Ghosts can even attack you while you are trying to open a
door or climb a ladder.
Shaking Off Ghosts: As a ghost attacks you, try hitting X rapidly. You
may be able to push the ghost back while taking minimal damage.
Random Encounters: On nights two and three, you will sometimes run into
spirits not listed in the walkthrough. The faster you make your way
through the game, the fewer random encounters you'll have to endure.

Saving the Game: Throughout the game are glowing camera stands where you
can save your progress. When the camera glows red it means there is a
hostile ghost nearby that must be dispatched before you can save. Save
points also allow you to restock your supply of Type 14 film.
Saving Photo Albums: You can save your photos for posterity using a
fairly complicated photo album system. If you're into the game that much, you
should buy it and read the manual.
The game consists of five parts: The Prologue, Night One, Night Two,
Night Three, and Final Night. While the ghosts and items I discovered are all
listed, research notes, paper scraps and the like are not included. Some
monsters and a few items appear randomly and may not always match the

a spirit stone and you can snap a picture of Munakata. Continue down the
stairs and you'll be attacked by three People Killed. Beware, because one
will often appear behind you.
Further along the shaky path you'll find Herbal Medicine lying in plain view
and a little further along you'll find a spirit stone. At the end of the
path you'll be treated to a cinema.
Head all the way back to the Demon Mouth, climb the ladders, and follow the
Corridor to the Rubble Room. In the Corridor, you can find a Stone
Mirror in the same place as before, in a hole in the floor to the right.
When you're almost to safety you'll be attacked by a Floating Face. Best to
bust out the higher grade film for this one.
Snap a picture of the exit door. It shows a pile of rubble-but which one?
Turn around and go halfway back to the door you entered by. Turn right and
look toward the save point. In this direction, you can snap a picture of
the Crushed Woman.
Save your game and go out the unsealed door.
In the SE corner is some Herbal Medicine.
Ghost Alert! As you approach the atrium door, the Man In Atrium appears.
Follow him out the door.
Head across to the Moon Shrine. The pillar to the left of the stairs
conceals a Spirit Stone. Snap a picture of the shrine doors to see a
picture of an altar. Leave the Moon Shrine and cross the atrium to the
porch. Turn left and head for the east door.
Ghost Alert! As you approach the door, snap a shot of Turning Mask Man.
Go past the mirror and enter the first door on the right.
Grab the ceremonial rope at the north altar. Then use the rope on the NW
Buddha, the NE Buddha, the SW Buddha and lastly the SE Buddha. The altar
door opens. Go fetch the teal carving. A cinema ensues, and you just know
you're in trouble.
After the cinema, the Master attacks. The special ability "See" works well
against him. Once he's driven, go out the door you came in.
Head south along the stairway and go out the door to the Cherry Atrium. Go
north to the Moon Shrine and use the teal carving on the puzzle door. The
solution is: 1 3 4 5 2 1 3
Open the front of the cabinet. Photograph all four sides of the cabinet.
Leave the room.
Approach the standing stones in the SE corner of the atrium and a Headless
Priest attacks. Finish him to get the first of four symbols.
As you head for the north door, snap a picture of Yae in the tree. Then go
out the north door.
At the water wheel, snap a picture of Hirasaka.
Advance onto the dock. As you approach the pile of rocks at the end,
another Headless priest attacks. Destroy him for the second symbol.
Head back across the Cherry Atrium, turning left at the porch, and go out
the door to the Stairway. Take the first door on the right to reach the
Buddha room. Weren't you just here? Leave by the far door.
Save your progress in the SAVE POINT and then approach the stone monument to
activate the fourth Headless Priest. Dispatch him for the third symbol.
Leave via the double doors to the Buddha room. When you reach the Stairway
area, turn right and continue north to the Fish Tank Room.
Fish Tank Room
You will have to fight two ghosts here. Don't go in. Stand at the door and
wait for the first to come to you. Once it's dispelled you can enter to
dispatch its companion. There is type 37 film by the entrance.
Exit by the far door. The solution is 1347.
Save your progress in the backyard and then head north. As you pass the
well, another headless priest attacks. Dispatch him for the fourth symbol.
Side Quest: Narukami Shrine
This quick trip north to the Narukami Shrine isn't required, but it may be
worth your while and it is necessary to find all the ghosts. There are two
ghosts to battle but the prize is the best film in the game, something you
should save for the final boss.
There is a stone mirror to the right of the shrine door. To the left is
type 90 film, the best in the game. While in this area, you will be
attacked by People Killed or some other kind of ghost.
Inside the shrine, stand in front of the altar, turn around and aim up into
the rafters for a shot of Takamine.
As you leave the shrine, expect another attack by ghosts on your way back to
Return through the fish tank room to the Stairway. Go all the way south to
the Cherry Atrium. Cross to the Moon Shrine and press the buttons on the
four sides of the cabinet. The first button unlocks the front of the
cabinet, the second button unlocks the right side, the third button unlocks
the back side, and the fourth button unlocks the left side.
Circle around and take a picture of the floor in front of the cabinet for
your next clue... a trail of blood. Follow it into the Cherry Atrium. As
you reach the porch, expect to be attacked.
Follow the blood to the right though the burial room and out the south door.
First, check the crack in the wall on the east side of the walkway to find a
stone mirror if you don't already have one. Then go though the south door
to the Grand Hall.
Sub Quest: Storeroom
There isn't much in the walkway storeroom this time around, and the
possibility of having to fight the Wandering Monk makes it a losing
proposition. For those willing to brave it, the code for the door is: 1312.
Spirit Stone behind central pile of boxes. Expect to be attacked by the
Wandering Monk. When he's driven, climb the ladder and cross the walkway to
find herbal medicine. A floating head will probably attack you. When
you're done, return to the Walkway and go out the southern door.
Approach the puddle of blood. The master attacks, dropping the Master's
Seal when he is banished. Floating above the west wall you can snap the
Check the second southern segment for some type 14 film. In front of the
far door you will find sacred water and type 74 film.
Return to the Cherry Atrium. Cross to the Moon Shrine and use the Master's
Seal on the cabinet. Climb down the ladder and grab the holy mirror. Watch
the cinema to end the level.
Before returning to the Cherry Atrium, you may want to explore the rest of
the mansion to pick up more items. However, it is not without peril.
Rope Hallway: Midway down the rope hall you'll find a spirit stone. Expect
Entrance: Find Herbal Medicine against the north wall and type 37 film on
the sunken area by the front door.
Blinding Room: Snap the immobile Blind Demon in the center of the room.

Fireplace (upper): Expect an attack. There is type 37 film in the cabinet
in the SW corner.
Tatami Room: Grab the Spirit Stone in the brazier and another under the
table. Expect an attack. Out on the observatory you will find some herbal
Anteroom: Save point. Go through the small north door, down the stairs and
out into the atrium. From here, you can head to the Moon Shrine and the end
of the level.
Doll Room: Spirit stone in a small box on the west shelf.
Kimono Room: Spirit stone in NE corner.
Library: Open up the NE closet and snap a picture of Ogata, but watch out
for an attack by the Wandering Monk.
FINAL NIGHT: KIRIE
Examine the photographs near the phonograph to find some sheet music. Play
the music on the koto. Climb the stairs to the attic.
For now, don't look through the hole in the walkway floor. Continue halfway
past it, listening for static. When you hear it, look back the way you came
and up for a shot of Long Hair Woman.
Now you may look through the hole for a nasty surprise. Follow the path,
grabbing the herbal medicine along the way, and peep though the second hole
for a less horrifying treat.
Continue along the attic path until you reach the rafters over the Buddha
Room. Turn right at the first intersection to reach a SAVE POINT. Continue
inching along the rafters, collecting some type 90 film along the way. When
you hear static, look down off the left side of the rafter and snap a photo
of Truth Binder. Should you need a stone mirror, turn right at the next
intersection and then right again to find one.
Go through the tiny door to the north.
After the cinema, enter the cell by the hidden panel right in front of you
to collect the holy mirror and Kirie's Hairpin.
Ghost Alert! Just as you leave the cell, turn right to snap a shot of the
Girl in White.
As you approach the exit, the Kirie's fearsome ghost appears behind you.
Run out the now open doorway and keep running. Descend the large
staircase, turn left and go onto the Cherry Atrium porch. When the color
returns you will know you are safe.
Side Quest: Abyss
At this point, if you want, you can go north to the Abyss. By standing on
the NW edge of the central stone portion of the dock and facing west, you
can snap Kirie's Love out over the water. Continue to the northernmost tip
of the dock where the rock pile is located, look off to the NE, and you can
snap the Burdened Man.
Enter the Moon Shrine and go down the ladder.
You'll find a spirit stone in the SE corner, sacred water in the NW corner,
and a SAVE POINT, but don't use it just yet. Use the hairpin at the mummy
across from the ladder. Pass through the door that unlocks to the Hell
Along the north wall is some Herbal Medicine. Now return to the Moon
and save your progress. This is the last time you will be able to save.
Return to the Hell Bridge and follow the path. After the cinema, two or
three ghosts will attack. As you cross the bridge, grab the type 37 film
and a little further along listen for static. Look off the left edge of the
bridge across from where you found the film for a photo of Man on Bottom.
Leave by the far door.
After the Cinema, a Shrine Maiden attacks. She likes to teleport under your
feet, so when you see her vanish, look down and back away for a close up
shot. Drive her away and search the room for a stone mirror. Approach the
central altar and look up for a shot of Six Vengeance. Proceed out the door
opposite the one you entered.
Find Herbal Medicine to the right of the entrance and a spirit stone to the
left. As you advance, a shrine maiden attacks from behind. She tends not
to teleport so she's a fairly easy kill. At the end of the hall you are
rewarded with sacred water.
This is the final area. Examine the far side of the pedestal in front of
the huge doors. After the cinema, Kirie attacks.
Tips for fighting Kirie:
* You can only damage her when your targeting circle is orange.
* Break out at least type 74 film (you may want to save your type 90 film
for nightmare mode).
* Don't bother using special abilities on her, they don't work.
* Get the pillar between you and her.
* She regenerates as she teleports, so its best if you can keep her in your
sights and nail her repeatedly.
* She causes earthquakes to mess up your aim.
* Don't get hit. One touch will kill you if you don't have a mirror stone.
* Don't panic. Kirie moves slowly and isn't as hard as these tips may make
Once Kirie is "defeated", turn around and race to the shiny spot next to the
stone pedestal. Run around the pillar and place the mirror in its hole.
Sit back and enjoy the cinema.
