Root Letter

Root Letter


"If fate allows it, I wish to one day be able to meet you, Max."

Takayuki, 32, is casually cleaning his room when he discovers an ominous letter. The sender? His pen pal Aya Fumino whom he exchanged letters with during his high school days 15 years ago. Filled to the brim with nostalgia and curious as to why Aya would have written such a letter and how it mysteriously appeared, he makes his way to Matsue, Shimane Prefecture, in search of his long lost companion.

Ending Guideline / Suggested Route Order

There are 5 endings: Crossing Paths, Cursed Letter, Princess of Himegamori Forest, A Government Plot, and The Bond of Marriage.

  • A Government Plot and The Bond of Marriage are unlocked upon getting your first ending.

I would recommend going Crossing Paths -> Cursed Letter -> Princess of Himegamori Forest -> A Government Plot -> The Bond of Marriage.

Route Guideline

  • All of the routes / ends are based on your P.S. replies to Aya's letters at the beginning of each Chapter.
  • Upon getting your first ending, you can use your Smartphone's SKIP function to jump to the beginning of the next Chapter.
    • Sadly, you cannot skip Chapter 8 and have to play through it when trying to get into routes.

Gallery Unlocks

Upon achieving your first playthrough, you'll unlock the Gallery on the main menu, however you will still need to do things to unlock each section.

Ironically, there's no actual Gallery / CG compilation.

1. "When you achieve the traveler's goal in each location..." - Unlock Script (can view the entire game's scripts)


This event unlocks after seeing any of the endings. On your next playthrough you will meet a traveler at the Vacant Lot who is going around Matsue. The events only trigger if nothing else is getting in the way (such as a main story event). If that happens just visit the place a second time. A good time to do this will be anytime during Chapter 8, when you have most of the map locations available.

  1. Vacant Lot
  2. Shimane Art Museum - Inside
  3. Matsue Oba Highschool
  4. Matsue Central Library - Inside
  5. Matsue Station
  6. Nakamura Bar
  7. Usagi Theater Company
  8. TSK San-in Chuo TV - Reception Desk
  9. Shiroyama Park - Castle Tower

...Script section in Gallery unlocked!

2. "If you can make the secret cocktail of Matsue..." - Unlock Guidebook


This event unlocks after seeing any of the endings. On your next playthrough visit the Nakamura Bar sometime during Chapter 8.  The events only trigger if nothing else is getting in the way (such as a main story event). If that happens just visit the place a second time.

  1. Nakamura Bar (Inside)
  2. Mone Dango Shop (Inside) - Pick Strawberry Red Bean Cake 
  3. Marukoshi (Inside) - Pick Ramune Soda
  4. Kamiari-an (Inside) - Pick Mint Leaves

  7. Nakamura Bar (Inside)

...Guidebook section in Gallery unlocked!

3. "If you can track down Shimane's vanished mascot..." - Unlock Music


This event unlocks after seeing any of the endings. On your next playthrough you will meet a man at Kamiari-an who is searching for SHIMANEKKO. The events only trigger if nothing else is getting in the way (such as a main story event). If that happens just visit the place a second time. Again, during Chapter 8 is a good time to do this.

*Everytime you find SHIMANEKKO, you will need to go back and report to Matsuda at Shimane Art Museum - Inside before moving onto the next location.

  1. Kamiari-an - Check the menu outside
  2. Vacant Lot - Check the leftmost house / third house from the right
