 Version 1.2 (April 10, 2002)

 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.
 ====-======-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====---=====----====

(Day 1: You have to work at the old Inn!)
 Clean the Outdoor Bath
(You meet Mai)
(You meet the Trio)
 No, I don't have a girlfriend (Best) OR Yes, I have a Girlfriend (Happy)
 Go to the Kitchen
 Go to town with Makoto-san
 Show Kyoka-san to her room
(You Meet Yuki)
 Yes, they're pretty
(The Party is in Full Swing, everyone is smashed.)

(Day 2: Ayumi Wakes You Up)

 Don't Ask Mai-San to show me the painting
 Go to the lake (R)

 No, I don't care about that (H)
(You meet all 10 girls before dinner and everyone gets trashed again)
 DAY 3 (Makoto wakes you up)
(You meet all 10 girls and get a punishment for fighting with Makoto.)
 Go someplace outdoors
 Go to the mountains (H)
(You chat with Ayumi about nudity (Hey, don't ask me))
 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.
 ====-======-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====---=====----====

 Stand Put        * That you win. It'd be boring to indicate how many times you hit or
                  * Stand. Good Luck! By the way, if you don't quit, you can't lose.

 Allow Natsuki to break her promise
(You chat with Ayumi about nudity (Hey, don't ask me))
 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.
 ====-======-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====---=====----====

 Call the Trio to Dinner (R)
 Go see what Nanami is looking for
 Go see what Natsuki is looking for
 Go see what Kumi is looking for
 Go see what Nanami is looking for
 Choose something pretty for Nanami (B)

 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...
 ====-======-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====---=====----====

 Make Natsuki keep her promise and strip (D) OR Allow Natsuki to Break her Promise
 (You chat with Ayumi about nudity (Hey, don't ask me))
 Call the Trio to Dinner (B)

 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.
 ====-======-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====---=====----====

(You meet all 10 girls and get a punishment for fighting with Makoto.)
 Go someplace outdoors
 Go to the lake (H)
 Call Mai-san to dinner
 Don't go into Mai-san's room (B)

 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.

====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====-====--====---====----=====
 Misato and Keiko (The Debutantes)

 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!
 ====-======-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====-=====---=====----====

 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....

 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.

 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.
