Version update:  12/16/00  Made minor changes on info. and added table of 
contents.  Also, changed my e-mail address.  Send all e-mails to (void as of 12/21/00, read beginning of FAQ for current 

12/21/00  Again, change in e-mail address.  I will know longer have aol 
service.  I have moved on to seganet since i got tired of aol already.  
Anyway, my bad for the frequent moving around but i should settle down at 
seganet for awhile.

12/29/00  Okay, added info on how to obtain the mysterious scroll and the 
armor slap scroll in the dojo area.  I've been getting frequent e-mails about 
this...  Also, I still have my address for now but i'd prefer 
you people to send e-mails to  Thanks.

Anyway, let's get this started.  This is written from my Japanese version of 
Shenmue but I have been informed that the format for the passport disc is 
exactly the same for the U.S. version.  I will not list the cut scenes by 
title but instead by what the scene is about.  Also, some names and places 
might be different from the U.S. version.  I will change the names if I know 
what they were changed to in the U.S. version.  However, if I'm not sure, 
I'll just make references to the characters or locations.  Good enough?  Alr
ight then, let's get started...

Cut scenes:

Okay, that's the cut scenes.  By the way, all cut scenes are automatically 
recorded except for numbers:  7, 9, 12,15 and 25.  This is because they can 
be missed.  All the rest are automatic because it's simply a mandatory cut 
scene in the game...

Now for the music tracks on the passport disc.  Actually, i will only list 
the tracks that can be missed (if you happen to not enter these areas) 
because the rest will be recorded automatically through game play just like 
the cut scenes.  Also, the track order will be different if you missed any on 
yours.  The track number I give you is the correct order.  Why?  I have them 
all unlocked, that's why!

Easily missed music tracks:

1-9:  Default
10:  The music from the noodle restaurant across from Suzume park
11:  The music from (Rapis) the fortune teller
12:  Bob's Pizza
13:  Abu candy store
14:  Slot House
15:  Tomato Mart
18:  Rest stop at the harbor (Tomato Mart 2)
30 - 32:  X-mas music  (all 3 will be obtained after a certain date near 

That's about it for unlocking empty slots on the passport.  Now for a more 
detailed explanation of how to get the cut scenes and the rest of the Shenmue 

Scene 7:  Disc 1, at the beginning of the game, when you first leave Ryo's 
house, walk over to the big tree beside the dojo.

Scene 9:  Disc 1, after heartbeats event, go home and sleep.  The next day, 
make sure the weather is sunny outside.  Head over to Sakuragaoka park around 
12pm noon to unlock this scene.  Also, make sure you see this scene first 
before looking for Charlie.

Scene 12:  Harasaki scene part 1 is at the end of disc 1.  Right before you 
get on the bus to disc 2 (after you called warehouse 8 on the phone), stick 
around Dobuita until 7pm and then go home.  Once in the house, look at the 
phone and it will ring.  Answer the phone by pressing "A" and the scene will 

Scene 15:  After obtaining the phoenix mirror in disc 2, instead of going 
back to Master Chen right away, stop at "Roshia" (i don't know what it's 
called in the u.s. version).  The place where the old lady in purple read you 
the chinese letter.  You'll get that scene.  You can also stop at the antique 
shop for more info on the phoenix mirror as well but this scene doesn't get 
recorded.  It's just extra.

Scene 25:  Harasaki scene part 2.  On disc 3, make sure the game date is 
december 26th or later.  Then, after 7pm, go in front of game you and there 
will be an automatic cut scene with Harasaki's friend, Tajima.  She'll tell 
you to go to Sakuragaoka park because Harasaki is crying there.  Go there 

Bad ending:

To get the bad ending easily, on disc 2 where u have to sneak in past the 
guards to get to old warehouse 8, keep getting caught over and over until the 
game date is april 15th.  You'll be sent home automatically and after you 
sleep, the bad ending will start.

Moves learned from people:

1.  Fuku-san on 2nd day of disc 1.  Go to dojo in the morning.
2.  Yamagishi-san on disc 1.  Go to Suzume park between 3 - 5pm AFTER talking 
to one of the "3 blades" and have bought all 6 moves at the antique shop.
3.  Gui Zhang on disc 3 at the harbor.  (part of story)
4.  Homeless man on disc 3.  Go to rest stop area at harbor after 1st "full" 
(not half) day of work.
5.  Homeless man again.  Same place after 2nd full day of work.
6.  Homeless man yet again.  Same place after 4th full day of work.
7.  Tom on disc 3.  (part of story)
8.  Master Chen at the end of game.  (part of story)

QTE's and a free battle that can be missed through gameplay:

1.  The scene where you QTE against 2 girls in the back of the harbor at 
beginning of disc 2 (surprisingly enough, many people miss this QTE).  After 
going to new warehouse 8, go to old warehouse entrance area.  Can't go in so 
go talk to Tom.  Then go to the lady selling lunch boxes at the stand.  
Follow her instructions.

2.  During disc 2, at night.  Go by the yokosuka bar or the karaoke place and 
the QTE scene will start.  It's with a drunk sailor guy holding a bottle.  
Kinda funny.

3.  This is a hidden free battle.  After unlocking scene 9 in disc 1, head 
over to the apartments at the very back of dobuita passed the big staircase 
after 7pm to have a free battle fight with 4  guys in the black school 
uniforms.  This scene happened for me after the part with Charlie in the 
tattoo shop and talking to Nozomi outside of the tattoo parlor.

Mysterious scroll and "armor slap" moves translated:

To obtain the mysterious scroll, go up to the big picture frame that has 
japanese writing on it and press R trigger to lock onto it.  Ryo will say 
that he can't reach it.  So go to the stool directly to the right of the 
frame and press A.  Ryo will use the stool to get the frame and move it.  You 
get the mysterious scroll.  The armor slap move scroll is located in the dojo 
basement.  when you enter the room with all the junk, go to the right and 
you'll see a folded up move scroll sitting on top of some old books.  that's 
the armor slap.
To get the mysterious scroll and the armor slap move translated, on disc 3, 
call master chen's warehouse number (61-5647) and then head over to old 8th 
warehouse.  You have to repeat this process twice because Gui Zhang will 
translate the armor slap first and the second time you go, he'll translate 
the mysterious scroll.

Well, there u have it.  That's all for now people.  E-mail me if u have any 
more questions regarding Shenmue.


Shenmue is a product of Sega so props go to them for making this hot game. for giving me opportunity to post this FAQ.
