Walkthrough written by Shaky Skunk.
When you’re at Red Dragon Island, run right into the Backyard. There will be a short cutscene where you will see a spark fly past, and Annie and Jack will chase after it.
Run to the far right and jump onto the tire swing. The rope will break and you will be able to move the tire around. Push the tire left, past Main Street, and into the Woods.
Keep on pushing the tire up the hills, similar to rolling the pumpkin in Great Pumpkin Island. You will eventualy reach a Treehouse. Pick up Jack’s Glasses and push the tire under the ladder. You will be able to jump onto the ladder using the tire.
Go inside the Treehouse, where you will find Jack and Annie. Jack will be cranky because he can’t find his glasses.
Use Jack’s Glasses and he’ll be able to see again. Annie will talk about going to Ancient Japan, annoying Jack. Talk to Annie and she’ll tell you about the Magic Treehouse. Pick up the “Frog Creek Pennsylvania: Home Town USA” book on the far left, and the “A Journey to Old Japan” book on the far right.
Use the “A Journey to Old Japan” book, and the Treehouse will start shaking!
You will now be in Ancient Japan. Exit the Treehouse, and Jack will give you a Magic Amulet.
Walk left, through the Garden, and towards the end of the area. Two guards will arrest you for not having a passport.
You’ll be sent to jail. Use the Magic Amulet, and you’ll be transported back to the Treehouse. Exit the Treehouse and walk left, into the Bonsai Trees store.
Talk to the blind lady and she’ll give you her Kimonos.
Customise a Kimono of your choice, and you’ll find a Passport in one of the pockets. (Um, yeah, that’s totally not identity theft or anything…)
Exit the store and go left into the Bridge area. You will see the Shogun and guards take Jack and Annie away for not having a passport.
Cross the bridge and go into East Edo. Grab the Rotten Fish on the stairs.
Keep walking up the stairs and go through the door. Go right, under the rocks and pick up the Parchment that drops from the sky. Go down the stairs into East Edo. Go left, through West Edo and into the Secluded Lake.
Keep going left and pick up the Bag of Mortar.
Go inside the Hut and talk to the old man. He will tell you that Basho is in town buying eggs. Exit the Hut and go back to East Edo. Talk to the samurai in front of the 5 men in the dragon costume, and he’ll tell you that the fifth man stole a fish and needs your help figuring out who did it.
Arrange the men in this order:
The samurai will ask you to place his Betting Slip for the sumo wrestling match.
Go back to the Bridge and use your Bag of Mortar. Put the pieces of the bridge together like this:
A sumo wrestler will run across the bridge and a lady will drop her scissors. Pick up the Bonsai Scissors and go under the bridge.
Use the Rotten Fish to catch the Kappa.
First, light the sticks. Then, click the boulder. Aim the beehive at the hole in the tree. Move the frog under the lilypad with bubbles underneath it. Finally, click the rotten fish to catch the kappa.
Go right and enter the Bonsai Trees store. Use the Bonsai Scissors, which will bring you to a minigame. You will have to match the bonsai with the picture by cutting off the leaves.
Fighting the Yokozuna
A man will come in and buy a bonsai for the Yokozuna. Leave the Bonsai Trees store and left, back to West Edo and climb up the stairs. Continue walking left up the stairs and enter the Sumo Ring. Talk to the Yokozuna’s manager, (the guy who bought the bonsai), and he will ask you to sign autographs for the Yokozuna’s fans. All you have to do is copy the kanji drawn.
There are seven Kanji in total. After signing all the autographs, go to the far right and talk to the wimpy-looking sumo wrestler. He will ask you to fight the Yokozuna for him.
All you have to do is jump when he stomps on the ground, and jump when he charges at you.
Eventually, you’ll win the match. The guards are not impressed. They ask for your passport, but you don’t have it. Luckily, Basho will help you.
He tells you to meet him at the Secluded Lake. Exit the Sumo Ring, and go right into the Secluded Lake. Talk to Basho, and he’ll train you to become a ninja.
He’ll give you a Grappling Hook, Throwing Stars, Smoke Bombs, Ninja Outfits, a Bo Staff and Shuko. First, equip the black or white Ninja Outfit.
After that, use your Shuko to climb onto the far right tree, and grab the red ribbon.
Jump off the tree and equip the Throwing Stars. To put out the fire, aim at the candle with your cursor and press the space bar. Do the same with the bag.
Next, equip your Smoke Bombs and climb onto the tree on the far right. Throw one at the dummy on the tree with the space bar.
Jump off the tree and equip the Bo Staff. Just before the fruit that Basho throws at you hits you, press the space bar to deflect it.
Next, go to the right-hand corner and start running to the tree. Press the space bar just before you reach the tree, and you’ll jump.
Next, click onto the ring and you’ll grapple onto it.
Let go, and you’re done! Congratulations! Exit training and meet Basho at the brick wall. You will have to master the most important ninja skill of all: fixing his brick wall.
It turns out that wasn’t a ninja skill — he just wanted his wall to be fixed. Go back to East Edo and climb the stairs, into the Fortress Cliff. Using your shuko, climb up the rocks on right, and continue to the next area.
Continue climbing up the rocks, like so.
Avoid the giant logs, or you’ll be thrown back to the start.
Go left to the next area, and use Ninja Vision to see where the guard is. Use a smoke bomb to blind him, and enter the window.
Fortress – Room 1
Use the ninja star to cut the rope, and climb up the walls. Click on the ring to swing to the other side.
Get the piece of the Haiku, and climb back up the wall on the right. Throw a smoke bomb at the guard.
Jump down and go to the left, and throw a smoke bomb at the other guard.
Grab the key, and blind the guard yet again.
Use your ninja star to cut down the barrel, so the guard on the left won’t be able to see you.
Grapple onto the ring, and wall jump until you reach a door, which brings you to…
Fortress – Room 2
Use your ninja stars to turn off the lights. Make sure not to accidentally hit the guards!
Continue going down, hitting lanterns as you go.
To get past the guard standing close to the light on the right, blind him with a smoke bomb, otherwise this will happen:
Jump onto the brown platform that seperates a space with the key and a guard. Beware: jumping down will trigger arrows to shoot at you. Click onto the ring to safely get the key.
Jump back onto the platform and blind the guard on the right. Keep on climbing, and grab the second piece of the Haiku. Climb up the rope and blind the guard on your way.
Use the ring to get onto the next platform, and enter the door. You’ll finally be in…
Fortress – Room 3
As always, use your ninja star to block out the light, and swing across by grappling onto the hoop.
Using your ninja stars, bring down both of the platforms by cutting the ropes. Blind the guard, go down and get the third and final key.
Smoke bomb the guard, and bring down the platform. Grab the last piece of the Haiku.
“In my new clothing
I feel so different, I must
Look like someone else.”
Clever, isn’t it?
Jump onto the next platform, and use your ninja stars to make the platform above go down. If you’re stuck, refer to this gif, or do it when you get close.
Carefully jump down and blind the guard near the folding screens.
Cut the platform down, and watch out for the arrow trap! Keep going left, wall jump, and you should be in another room with folding screens. Use your Bo Staff to deflect arrows, and paul vault onto the arrow trap. Use the ring to get to the platform, if you’ve already cut it down.
Finally, enter the door, and your character will read out the passcode, which is the haiku.
In the room, the evil Shogun will be there, with Jack and Annie in a cage.
Use the shuriken to cut down the cage. The Shogun will summon the Red Dragon, and he’ll start destroying the city.
Annie will summon the Cloud Dragon, and you’ll be transported to a snowy mountain.
Climb the mountain, and click on the Cloud Dragon to ride her.
To defeat the Red Dragon and save the town, you must attack him using water, while also putting out the flames. You must make sure that at least one of the buildings doesn’t burn down. To recharge the water powers, go to the clouds.
If you fail, try again or play it in easy mode, where you don’t have to recharge.
It turns out Basho and the Shogun are brothers! Aww… They make up, and everyone is happy. Except for the men in prison. Use the Magic Amulet to get back to the treehouse, and the Frog Creek Book to go home.
You will be given an Island Medallion and 150 credits! Weeby!
