     TOKIMEKI CHECK-IN (TCI) is one of the newest bishoujo games to come from the
     excellent company Peach Princess. The program itself was written by Crowd, and comes
     on two CDs, one with the actual game and the other with support materials and
     behind-the-scenes work.
    
     To spare you my own poor summary skills, I'll give you the summary written
     by Everett Lo of HENTAINEKO.COM:
    
     "Traditional Japanese inns, known as "ryokan," are wonderful places to enjoy the
      calm wind through the Japanese pines, bathe in traditional Japanese hot springs,
      and find the true spirit of the Japanese soul. It's also a great place to find
      romance and naughty fun!
    
      "You are Takayuki Yamano, the reluctant operator of Yamano Inn, which you took over
      from your parents after graduating from college. An average Japanese youth who's
      more than a little bit of a slacker, you wanted more than anything to get away from
      the inn where you grew up by trying to get a job in Tokyo -- but here you are. It's
      hard work, but you don't mind being around your childhood friend Ayumi and the
      spunky but cute Makoto, who work with you in the inn. Not to mention all the lovely
      ladies who are guests in the inn."
    
     So to the more cynical and jaded of the Hentai Games sub-culture, this is a basic
     decision tree game with excellent graphics and sound. You're presented along three
     days with a number of decisions to make, and based on your choices, you succeed in
     seducing one of a selection of 10 female characters, spread along 17 possible
     endings. In an ideal world, you then head off to happiness, but happiness is often
     elusive.
    
     The game can be terribly addicting; I basically lost a good portion of the evenings
     of a couple weeks playing it. Luckily, the programmers have a hefty amount of game
     save spots and they include the life-saving "skip" feature, which allow you to skip
     quickly to the next decision spot. Since there are scenes in this game that are
     played in EVERY POSSIBLE ITERATION, this was an important feature indeed. You can
     only, for example, endure hearing the same lecture or witness the same time-passing
     conversation so many times before you bust a blood vessel or something. The "skip"
     feature made this endurance a snap.
    
     Once you start taking a scientific approach to the game (which I had to for this FAQ)
     you start to find some real anomalies in the decision tree. For example, choosing to
     sweep versus mop the floor can mean the difference between success and failure. Hey,
     thanks for that one, fellas!
    
     The game has exceptional balance and sprinkles opportunities to see some num-nums at
     a good portion of the decision tree. For example, any moron can get at least one
     hentai scene with most of the women (especially Debutantes or Ayumi); you only have
     to make one or two choices regardless of your previous ones to find yourself naked
     or doing really weird things in some secluded part of the Inn. The rub (so to speak)
     is getting ALL the required right decisions to not just score, but score multiple
     times, and also to do the right things to get the "best" ending. To my shock, I've
     had at least one case where I've slept with the same character twice in one game and
     STILL not gotten the best ending, meaning I'd forgotten to do some other thing in
     the game. This can be VERY frustrating, but luckily, this walkthrough will help
     you not suffer.
    
     There are four kinds of endings in TCI: The generic "It's good to work at the
     Inn" ending, the endings where you do something bad and get sex for it, the "Happy
     Endings", where you come to a nice resolution with your chosen girl, and the "Best
     Endings", which have actual stories going on as you go, coming to a fine, wonderful
     conclusion. Obviously, the first kind are the easiest to get, and the second kind
     are somewhat easy, but ruin your chances for the happy and best endings.

     Oh, my walkthrough scares you? That's understandable. This is a special game and
     it shows a ton of effort, so you probably just want some ideas before you dive into
     flat-out step-by-step instructions.
    
     * Paying more attention to a girl gets you closer to her. (duh)
     * Sit in your room or the employee room alone, and you TEND to stay alone.
     * Except in a few special cases where you don't.
     * The girls don't like you being a jerk to them or ignoring them.
     * Sometimes, the girls tell you where they're headed, so you can find them.
     * The questions the girls ask and the decisions you're asked to make are never
       really trick questions. Should you peek in their rooms, say yes to their advances,
       or agree to drive them somewhere? Hell YEAH!
     * In a few special cases, you will find yourself in the SAME situation with the
       SAME girls, but your previous choices before in the game will give you an ENTIRELY
       different response on the part of the girls. Don't think you've lost just because
       you see the same scene beginning to happen again.
     * Feel free to save the game before you make a choice, however, in case the game
       surprises you with the response.
     * The storyline twists and weaves, but there are several events (dinners and
       breakfasts) which are immutable, that is, they happen in pretty much every
       game. In these meals, you see ALL the girls, one after another, regardless of
       if you've been mean, nice, or lecherous to them. It's an opportunity, in a very
       rough sense, to see your progress.
     * If everyone says goodbye at the end and no one steps forward, start over, mack.
       You lost. Ayumi of course is glad to work with you, but does she still have her
       clothes on? Yup, you're a loser. Retry.
     * Also, wait until the first decision tree and save before you make a choice. This
       gives you a vital slot to restart the game without having to sit through the
       opening scene.
     * None of these hints apply to Makoto. I don't understand Makoto at all and she
       makes no sense in her choices, and therefore she's the most realistic female
       character. (Good thing this is being written under a handle)

    ====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====--====---====----=====
    
     Well, enough of that namby-pamby stuff; let's see some walkthroughs! Before we
     begin, I'd like to give you some caveats and warnings:
    
     There is a code system at work here. Anything in (Parenthesis) happens regardless of
     your actions and no choice has to be made; I just leave those in there so you get a
     sense of time. In one case (The punishment scene) the game goes on for an
     ASTOUNDINGLY long time with pretty much no intervention from you, and it happens
     each and every time you play. I figured it'd be nice to know that you haven't made
     some big error or are deep in a mistake and don't know it.
    
     The other codes tell you the kind of scene that happens after you make a decision:
    
     (R) - Romance. You get a nice drawing or text indicating you're closer to the girl.
     (H) - Hentai. You score with the girl, with accompanying sound and graphics. (Woo)
     (D) - Dead End. Basically, you get some sort of Hentai scene, but it ruins your
           chances for a "Best" ending. Or, sometimes, any special ending at all. Without
           it, however, you can't get 100 percent of the gallery. Choices, choices....
    
    ====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====--====---====----=====
     Ayumi (The Maid)
    
     Ayumi works at the Inn with you and has been a friend since childhood. She's
     very shy and submissive (in a Japanese game? Say it isn't so!) and spends most
     of her time fumbling around you. She's also exceptionally good at getting you
     and the guests to attack her at every turn. You'd think she'd carry some mace.
     ====-======-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====---=====----====
    
    (You have to work at the old Inn!)
     Clean the Outdoor Bath
    (You meet Mai)
    (You meet the Trio)
     Yes, I have a Girlfriend
     Go to the Garden
     Clean up inside the Inn
     Ask Ayumi to show kyoka-san to her room
     Yes, they're pretty
    (You meet all 10 girls before dinner and everyone gets trashed again)
     Take away the dishes
     Have Ume-San check the Bath
     Help Ayumi Finish
     Try to save Ayumi OR Watch the situation unfold (HD)
    (Day 2: Ayumi Wakes You Up)
    (Say Hi to everyone for Breakfast!)
     Sweep the front yard
     Go to town
     Allow Ayumi to Accompany me
     Go shopping with Ayumi
     No, I don't care about that
     Drink some Sake
     Rape Ayumi(H) OR Don't Rape Ayumi
    (Day 3: Makoto wakes you up)
    (You meet all 10 girls and get a punishment for fighting with Makoto)
     Stay inside the Inn
     Go to the Kitchen
     Call the Debutantes to Dinner
    
     NOTES
     ---=-
     Ayumi, being the cover girl for the program, is everywhere in this game; you see
     her constantly getting underfoot in all sorts of situations. She gets the saddest
     when you choose other girls, but don't let her sad demeanor indicate to you that
     you're not going to succeed elsewhere.
    
     Ayumi is also one of the more off-kilter aspects of the game because in a number
     of different situations, people will attack her sexually (including yourself!)
     and you will have to make a choice about how to respond. If you want to see all
     the endings and images, you have to choose to throw her to the wolves a number of
     times (remember to save your game) but in at least a small show of conscience,
     you can't win the game if she gets raped.
    
     In some situations, you will not be given the choice to rape Ayumi, this indicates
     that you're already far along in your relationship with her that the thought doesn't
     occur to you.  Good for you.
    
    ====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====--====---====----=====
     Kyoka (The Mysterious and Sad Girl)
    
     Beautiful and fascinating but amazingly aloof, this dark-haired beauty won't talk
     to you directly and your attempts to warm her up fall on deaf ears. Forget romance;
     you can't even have a civil conversation! With persistence and tons of drinks,
     however, you can probably get some secrets out of her.

     Call Kyoka-san to dinner (H) (All Right! THREE Hentai Scenes!)
    
     NOTES
     ---=-
     Kyoka is the most "normal" of the characters, in that the plot becomes very clear
     within a short time. The only choice that kind of makes no sense is negotiating
     what I consider to be the "Employees' Room Maze" on Day 1. Awake, awake, as opposed
     to nap and awake, etc. Very confusing. Her "Best Ending" is also one of the more
     interesting. Oh, and she's a lush.
    
    ====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====--====---====----=====
     Kumi (Youngest of the Trio)
    
     You crazy freak! The youngest of the three students who travel together at the Inn
     (which you and the game call the "Trio") is perky, bubbly, and curious about you
     and your romantic attachments. Luckily, you have a lot of self control, which lasts
     you at least half a day on the three days you come to know each other.

     Call the Trio to Dinner (B)
    
     NOTES
     ---=-
     It is explained in the excellent liner notes that Kumi refers to herself in the
     third person as a result of Japanese culture that says this is how young girls talk.
     How cute! That makes the sex even more fun! It's worth noting that even though
     Kumi (And Nanami) are seen nude in the first (R) scene with Natsuki, that actually
     counts AGAINST you in your scale along Kumi and Nanami. Weird, but true.
    
    ====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====--====---====----=====
     Nanami (Middle of the Trio)
    
     Constantly battling with Natsuki and playing with Kumi, this green-haired girl is
     the middle age of the three students called "The Trio". She's playful and fun, and
     and just a little bit weird and romantic.

     NOTES
     ---=-
     This one won the award for the "WHAT THE FUCK" response when you try to rape Ayumi,
     Nanami shows up after her, and happily submits to your (drunken) charms. I have to
     assume that the writers balance this odd behavior out by having HER get plastered
     and attack YOU later in the third night. For some weird reason, I like the way this
     all plays out; it's nice to be SURPRISED by a game.
    
    ====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====--====---====----=====
     Natsuki (Oldest of the Trio)
    
     You'd think the oldest girl of the three students known as the Trio would be in
     some way more mature or intelligent than the others, but no, in fact she's the
     least mature of all! Your interactions with her are an endless parade of teasings,
     beatings, and for reasons you can't imagine, pratfalls that make her all wet...

     NOTES
     ---=-
     This is probably the weirdest progression in the game; Natsuki CONSTANTLY berates
     and attacks you THROUGHOUT the decision tree regardless of what you two have been
     up to. Quite strange, but at least she's into Strip Blackjack, right? Be sure to
     make her keep her promise and strip, of course. That scene's great. Oh, that and
     the ping pong paddle.

     Mai (The Artist)
    
     Mai is the first guest you meet; she's a red-headed artist who thinks you're nice and
     who is working on her painting in the mountains. When she finished the painting,
     she'll leave, and how that makes you feel, you don't know.

     NOTES
     ---=-
     Mai is my favorite because the plot for her is both believable and not too far out
     there, although your first time being on a rowboat does make it worth talking about
     as opposed to most "first" experiences. Her story is also the sweetest, unless you're
     the kind of sap who falls for the manufactured feel of Kumi.
    
     You'll note, also, that there's LOTS of ways to screw up with Mai, including an
     actual "endgame" regarding the painting.

     I just call Misato and Keiko "Misato" since they're a 2-for-1 special; you never
     get one without the other, in any situation. Hey, more for you! They wander onto
     the scene on the second day, and are an exceptionally easy couple to score with,
     probably as a bone to throw people who can't get the hang of the game. This is
     another brilliant move by Crowd, because nothing cheers up a frustrated gamer than
     a sudden three-way in a hot tub. Excellent work, Crowd!

     NOTES

     If you didn't get at least one scene with the debutantes the first time you played
     this game, quietly take the CD out of the drive, put it into the case, and give it
     to someone before you hurt yourself.

     Yuki (The Busty Model)
    
     She wants to be a star and is sad that she isn't famous yet, but Yuki is still
     giving it her all to become a famous "Busty Idol", a singer with a great rack.
     (Hey, it's a living.) She models swimsuits and does the occasional singing act,
     and you're welcome to sit in, if you're nice to her....

     Hey, great swimsuits! Her character is all over the place, but you can usually
     make sense of it all as it goes along. Did I miss an explanation about why the
     lantern moved?

     Makoto (The Cook)
     COMPLETE (Best and Happy Endings)
    
     You begged your parents to let Makoto stay as the Cook for the Inn, because you
     needed her level of professional help to be able to make the meals. Of course,
     she's completely over the top and a crazy tomboy who sees nothing wrong with
     beating the living stuffing out of you at every opportunity. Maybe she has feelings
     for you, but she's doing a good job of having to show them to you at the hospital.

     No, there's nobody in particular (R)

     NOTES
     ---=-
     If I perish one day on a Thursday, I will know that I could have made it to Sunday,
     if it wasn't for frigging Makoto and her complete unpredictability. The character
     makes NO SENSE to me; I busted my head for HOURS trying to figure out why saying hello
     to one character would doom me forever with Makoto. The same for choosing to try and
     stay awake instead of sleeping, or showing a guest to their room or not. I had to
     result to TRIAL AND ERROR to succeed, and that can cause cancer with so many choices
     in this game. Please, use the walkthrough, save a life.

     Ume-San (The Mentor)
    
     Umekichi Sugida has worked in the Japanese Inn business for your father for years.
     Your parents trust him like one of their own, so it's natural they'd have him keep
     and eye on things with you. He keeps things in line, reminds you of your duties, and,
     occasionally, metes out punishment.
    
     Now, before you get all freaked out that there's a walkthrough for Ume-San, let me
     explain. See, it turns out Ume's got a little fun going on on the side, and if you
     happen to trip your way through the story the right way, you'll find his secret out.
     For the vast, vast, vast majority of the storylines, you'll see that Ume's a little
     odd, but only one gives the show.

    This special section is for people who are having trouble reaching all hundred percent
    of images. Maybe you think you're missing some vital scene, or maybe you think "Geez,
    I really feel like I've become one with every girl in this game and I'm STILL not at
    100 percent." Well, the key is AYUMI, the little minx. You see, the game considers it
    a complete different sex scene later in the game in Ayumi is attacked by the two hotel
    guests earlier in the game. The scenes are labelled "virgin" and "non-virgin" depending
    on if you let the guests have their way. Tricky, huh? You have to go through the whole
    situation both with a rape and without a rape to get all the scenes.
    
    Is there a reward for getting 100 percent? Well, yes, matter of fact. Getting 100
    percent will give you every single drawing associated with the game, and I do mean
    EVERY one. Backgrounds, poses, pictures, you name it. Is it worth it? Well, you
    decide. Hey, I see you already decided! Good luck!

     This section refers to the "names" and numbers of the endings in TCI, which come
     when you complete a decision tree. What you're trying for in the game is what's
     called a "Best Ending": You say goodbye to everyone but your special lady, and some
     additional things happen that show how your relationship will go on from there,
     after the game runs credits.
    
     All the endings are not the same in terms of how the game considers them good and
     not good. That is, some endings are longer than others, and you're not as happy with
     your lot in life. But make no mistake, if you see credits and then the story, you've
     won as far as TCI is concerned.
    
     The game tells you if you've gotten the best ending or not, but has other little
     endings as well. Basically, if you get the credits, you get a best ending. Otherwise,
     you get a "Happy" ending (or maybe just an ending).
    
     Number 15 is the "default ending", the one you get if you don't get two Hentai scenes
     with a character.
    
     The game has 17 different endings, the names of which are listed below. I also list
     which character the ending centers around and whether the game considers them Happy,
     Best, or just a plain ending. It should be noted that not every character has both
     a best and happy ending.
    
     01 - Broken Vinculum (Ayumi) (Sad Ending)
     02 - Devil's Breath (Ume/Ayumi) (Sad Ending)
     03 - The Value of Glory (Misato/Keiko) (Best)
     04 - Destiny (Yuki) (Best)
     05 - Promise (Yuki) (Happy)
     06 - New Breath (Mai) (Best)
     07 - Shining Lady (Mai) (Happy)
     08 - Endless Night (Kyoka) (Best)
     09 - The Glorious Road (Kyoka) (Happy)
     10 - Natsuki Strikes Back! (Natsuki) (Best)
     11 - New Breath (Kumi) (Best)
     12 - With the Blooming (Nanami) (Best)
     13 - Family (Makoto) (Best)
     14 - The Power of Love (Makoto) (Happy)
     15 - Tranquil Days (Default Ending)
     16 - Brilliant Days (Ayumi) (Best)
     17 - Love and Order (Ayumi) (Happy)

     That's it for this FAQ. It's been an awful lot of fun playing this game, and
     this is the first game FAQ I've written in over a decade, so it was fun
     re-learning how to do it. Arigato!
    
     A special thank you to The Raven, who has assisted me greatly in fleshing out
     the endings and verifying the walkthroughs.
