This walkthrough is intended to show you where to go next
and how to solve the puzzles. From time to time, you will
get chances to take photos of ghosts who only appear for a
few moments. We leave these chance events to your own discovery.
All directions are based on the cardinal directions set on
the map. Also, this walkthrough will only mention encounters
with ghosts that have an impact on moving further through
the game, be it stationary or aggressive spirits.
Intro - Himuro
Once in the entrance area, head to the west door into
the Rope Hallway. Take the northeast door into the Fireplace.
Head up the stairs and grab the item on the other side. A
ghost will attack. After the fight, head along the balcony
until you see a ghost walk underneath you. Now head back to
the Rope Hallway.
First Night - The Strangling Ritual - Pick up the
Herbal Medicine and head into the Rope Hallway. Once you get
the camera, go into the Fireplace and pick up the Herbal Medicine
and the film in the back room. Go up on the balcony and take
it to the end. Now head back to the first floor Fireplace
and go to the folding screen next to the stairs. Take a photo
and then remove the folding screen. Open the door and go into
the Lamp Hallway. Take the first door on the west to the Library.
Go the back and pick up the Type-37 film and then open the
closet door in the northeast corner. Pick up the tape recorder
and head to the now open western door. Once in the Kimono
Room, head to the back window. After a ghost battle, take
the white tape and move to the mirror stand, where you need
to take a photo. Head back to the Fireplace to find the mirror
where the photo shows you to look. Return to the Kimono Room
with the mirror and place it in the stand to receive the Brass
- BOSS - When
this fight starts, move to the open area to allow free movement.
This ghost likes to teleport, so stay near the center of the
room and take a couple shots before he gets to close. Then
move and take a few more. He should fall fairly easily.
Return to the second floor Fireplace and use the Brass Key
on the Padlock. Enter the Tatami Room. Enter the east door
to save and get a few items, and then go to the west door
to the Walkway, where you need to continue west down the steps.
After you fight the ghost, enter the south door to the Grand
Hall to get some items. As you leave, fight another spirit
and head to the Burial Room (north door in the Walkway). You
will find a scroll that will give you a clue on how to open
the locked door in the hall. If you wish, you can enter the
north door to the Rubble Room to save. Go back to the western
door and enter 1312 on the combination lock. (The symbols
represent 0-9, counterclockwise, starting with 0 in the 12
o'clock position). Enter the storehouse and shoot a photo
of the spirit behind the ladder to "unlock" the
talisman in the Burial Room. Before you head there, go up
the ladder and make sure to pick up the Type-74 film. Back
at the Burial Room, go through the now unlocked door to the
Cherry Atrium. Take Spirit Photos of both sealed doors and
head to the north door to the Abyss. Shoot a Spirit Photo
of the watermill to break the first talisman and head back
to the south door in the Cherry Atrium. Take a Spirit Photo
of the dolls to break the second sealed door and fight the
ghost to exit. Head to the east door and grab the lighter.
Use it on the Lamp in the Abyss and grab the Black Carving.
Head back to the Stairway, and grab all of the items from
the top floor before heading to the north door.
- BOSS - This
spirit moves fast, so you'll need to take a few shots, and
then move to another area before he catches you. Don't go
into camera mode until you're sure you see where he's going
Once the ghost is dispatched, go to the door and solve the
puzzle the same way you did the last one, except the number
is now 3669. Enter the backyard and deal with the ghost. Be
sure to save before moving on to the north door to the Forest
Path. Solve the door puzzle by moving the pieces to their
matching symbols. When the four pieces are matched up, the
5th piece will be placed automatically. Enter the Narakumishrine
and go to the Buddha shrine. When the signal that a spirit
is there, look up and take a photo of the Crucified Man.
- BOSS - This
spirit is really fast and likes to fade in and out, often
moving behind you as you try to locate him. Switch to a stronger
film and try to get outside. Snap off a few shots only when
he becomes visible and be sure to move your position on occasion.
When he becomes stationary, shoot as many shots as you can
before he starts to fly around again. From time to time, everything
with go black. To avoid taking damage during this period,
take notice of the strength of the light of the filament and
try to move away from the ghost's presence.
Return to the Narakumishrine and shoot a Spirit Photo of the
Buddha dolls. Go back out and look at the east post of the
Shinto Gate. When you have the Buddha doll go back in and
place it. Take a shot of the puzzle and then move the pieces
as such: NW corner - Left Hand, N - Head, NE - Right Hand,
SW - Left Foot, SE - Right Foot. After the cutscene, let the
ghost catch you.
Second Night - Demon Tag - You start the night in
the Doll Room. Grab the items and take the Spirit Photo. From
this point, head out and into the Burial Room to grab the
scroll. Step into the Rubble Room and take another Spirit
Photo of the locked door in the back. Now, go to the Stairway
Room on the other side of the Cherry Atrium. Follow the boy
spirit and take a Spirit Photo of the sealed north door. Now
head back to the stairs and take a Spirit Photo to break the
talisman. Go back to the north door and enter the Fish Tank
Room. Cross over to the locked door, which has a new combination:
2611. Go to the well and defeat the ghost. Grab the Blue Carving
and return to the Abyss. Cross the bridge and grab the Purple
Carving. Head back to the Rubble Room and solve the door puzzle.
Enter the Corridor and solve the puzzle at the end to enter
the Demon Mouth. Using the ladders, go to the bottom and approach
the door. After the spirit shows, speak to it and then take
a Spirit Photo. As you head out, you must defeat another ghost.
Once beaten, the ghost will give you matches and a clue. Head
back to the Burial Room and go to the candles. Light the candles
in the following order (from left to right): 4-5-4-2. Take
the scroll to the Doll Room and place it on the wall when
you took the original photo. Pass through to the Kimono Room
and head onto the Fireplace Room.
- BOSS - After
a cutscene, you'll need to be fleet on your feet. The child
ghost moves fast and likes to teleport. Run to one side of
the room and make sure you see the ghost before going into
camera mode. If you're lucky, he'll try to run towards you
along the ground, which will give you a chance for three or
four shots. Once you lose sight of him, move around, even
to the other side of the room. Don't try to go into camera
mode until you have a good idea where he's at.
Defeating him will give you the mirror piece back. Go up the
stairs and take a Spirit Photo of the sealed door. Now, go
to the Rope Hallway and take a Spirit Photo of the ceiling
to break the talisman. Now, head up to the Tatami Room and
go to the backroom in the northeast corner. Take a Spirit
Photo of the safe. Now head to the Walkway and take a Spirit
Photo of the south door. Go down the west steps and take a
Spirit Photo of the opening between the two rooms to break
the talisman. Enter the Koto Room and grab the Bronze Key.
Head back to the safe in the Tatami Room and use the Bronze
Key on it. Now, go to the north door and step out onto the
balcony. After a cutscene, head down to the Cherry Atrium
and go for the items on the ground.
- BOSS - This
spirit moves fast and like to teleport. She even likes to
come down on you from above. Your best bet is to keep moving
and only take shots when you can see her. If you're lucky,
she'll stall for a moment and you can get a few shots in.
Just keep moving and stay out in the open.
Once the fight is over, pick up the items you came out for
and go to the Doll Room. Take a Spirit Photo of the dolls
and go to the table across from the to locate the missing
doll. You need to pick up one doll and then grab the only
one facing you on the second round. Place it where the other
dolls are to get the Angry Mask. Now, head to the Entrance
and place the mask on the east wall. Once through the hidden
door, grab the mask off the wall. Now take a Spirit Photo
of the mask in the north hall and grab the Joyful Mask. Head
to the east door and grab the Sad Mask once you're through
to the Mask Room. Head up to the center platform and look
at the Happy Mask. Dispatch the ghost and grab the mask. Use
it on the north door into the Square Garden. Take a Spirit
Photo of the north door and then look at the stone monument
in the center of the room to get a Gold Carving. Go back to
the north door and solve the puzzle to unlock it. Enter the
Buddha Room and pick up the Reflecting Mask.
- BOSS - The
Folklorist can be a pain. Luckily, he stays within the confines
of the room, so you only need to move to one of the corners
and try to locate him before taking a few shots. He moves
exceptionally fast and likes to teleport often. At some point,
he will use magic to draw you towards him for a cheap attack.
Head back to the Mask Room and place all of the masks into
the center area. Now, go to the unlocked door and enter the
Blinding Room, where you pick up the Blinding Mask. Take it
with you to the Demon Mouth. When you enter you will be attacked
by another Folklorist. Get past him and head down to the bottom
level. Look at where the mask needs to be placed and a Blind
Woman will attack. Defeat her and place the Blinding Mask
in it's slot. Enter the now open door to the Banned Path.
Once the ghost attacks, let it come for you to end the night.
Third Night - Calamity - You start the night in the
Demon Mouth. Open the door to the Banned Path and make your
way to the end, avoiding the ghosts along the way. Since you'll
be attacked by a group of ghosts, you might want to just dodge
them rather than fighting it out. After the cutscene, grab
the scroll and head back to the Demon Mouth. Leave and defeat
the floating face to get out of the sealed door at the other
end of the Corridor. Once in the Rubble Room, take a Spirit
Photo of the south door. Turn around and take a Spirit Photo
of the rubble pile. Now, go back to the Buddha Room, cutting
through the Cherry Atrium. Pick up the Ceremonial Ropes from
the back of the room. Use the rope on the statues in this
order: NW, NE, SW, SE. The altar will open. Go to it and pick
up the Teal Carving.
- BOSS - This
spirit will prove to be the toughest you've faced so far.
He moves quickly and has a long reach with his attack. When
you focus on him with the camera, he'll teleport around A
LOT. You're only going to get one or two shots before he's
on you, so make the best of your shots and keep moving. If
you have the "Paralyze" ability for the camera,
make sure to use it, as it will allow you a few cheap shots
before he can move again.
Once through, head back to the Cherry Atrium. Go to
the locked door and solve the puzzle. Enter the Moon Shrine,
open the cabinet and take Spirit Photos of all four sides
of the cabinet. Now go to each of the four areas (Monument
in Cherry Atrium, Monument is The Abyss, Monument in The Backyard
and the Monument in The Square Garden) shown in the pictures
and defeat the ghosts. Each of the ghosts will use tactics
used by previous bosses. When you beat the ghosts, you need
to pick up a book that they've dropped and move on. On your
way to The Backyard, you will need to defeat a ghost in the
Fish Tank Room and then unlock the door by inputting the combination:
1347. Once all four ghosts are defeated, go back to the Moon
Shrine and press the following buttons on each panel - South
1, West 4, North 3, East 2. Now, take a Spirit Photo of the
southern panel to reveal a blood trail. Follow the trail to
the Grand Hall.
- BOSS - This
spirit is similar to the one you fought in the Buddha Room,
except that he seems to have a lot more health. Try to use
the same tactics as before and keep moving to keep out of
his reach. When you see him rear back for an attack, move
out of the way.
Take the Master Seal and take it to the cabinet in
the Moon Shrine. Once in the Moon Well, take the Holy Mirror
Final Night - Kirie - You will start in the Koto Room.
Pick up the Koto Sheet Music and return to the Koto. Once
the door is open, take the steps up to the Attic. Look at
the light shining through the hole in the floor and defeat
the spirit that attacks (Floating Head). Move on and look
through the second hole, this one in the wall. Now move on
into the rafters of the Buddha Room. Be sure to pick up the
Type-90 film and exit through the northeastern door to the
Dungeon. Enter the cage and pick up the Holy Mirror Piece
and Kirie's Hairpin. Now, exit the cage and follow Kirie.
When the ghost appears, haul butt and get to the Cherry Atrium.
Once there, enter the Moon Shrine and go down into the Moon
Well. Place Kirie's Hairpin into the opening in the pedestal.
Be sure to save before moving on. Enter the Hell Bridge and
defeat the two spirits. Enter the next door to the Rope Chamber,
where you'll need to defeat a spirit that stays low to the
ground. Take the south door to the Baptism Path, where you'll
have to defeat a similar spirit to open the next door. Enter
the Hell Gate and go to the side of the stone that faces the
- FINAL BOSS - Make
sure to steer clear of this one. She can kill you instantly.
Equip the Type-90 film and move back to the bridge so you
can keep some distance between yourself and her. Let your
camera max out it's charge and get a clean shot before she
teleports again. Keep backing away as your build your charge.
After the cutscene, run and grab the Holy Mirror Piece, and
then take the complete Holy Mirror to the face of the rock
that started this fight. Enjoy the ending.
