Say Hello to Mr. Yukawa at Takara Sushi!!

Postby Kiyuu » Wed Feb 11, 2004 4:01 am

Do you know Mr. Hidekazu Yukawa, the key person in "What's Shenmue?"

Image

Mr. Yukawa, known as Yukawa-senmu, is very famous among Japanese SEGA fans,
because he used to appear lots of TV cms for SEGA. It's true he once was senmu,
senior executive officer of SEGA.

Anyway, you can meet him again in the actual game, as a rare event.
In order to meet him, you should get two of his figures, "Happi" and "Suit," at Abe store
in Sakuragaoka. They're prizes of the raffle. Be sure to get each of them. But, if you
got two "Suit"s before you get "Happi," keep drawing the raffle after you got "Happi."

Because, many people failed to meet him with three figures, i.e., one "Happi" and two
"Suit"s, or two "Happi"s and one "Suit." But, someone reports when he had one "Happi"
and three "Suit"s, or two "Happi"s and two "Suit"s, he was able to meet him. That implys
you should have even numbers of the figures, two or four!! Do you know what I mean?

To save time and money, I recommend you to get one of each. So, if you get two "Suit"s
first, just reset the game and start drawing again!! Needless to say, you should go to
the store first thing in the morning.

OK, when you got both of the figures, wait until the 9th of any month. Go to Takara Sushi
after 8:00 in the evening. You can easily identify him in the restaurant.
In Japanese version, Ryo says "You're Mr. Yukawa, aren't you?" and Mr. Yukawa says
something and runs away. But, it's a shame that in US Shenmue, Ryo doesn't utter
a word when you hit the "A" button, nor does Mr. Yukawa.

If you want to see him again, just go outside and enter the restaurant again. You can
see him as many times as you want between 8:00 and 9:00 on that day.


EDIT: Now, you can see Yukawa-senmu having a drink at Bar Yokosuka by downloading this video:

There's another chance you can meet Mr. Yukawa.

Go to Bar Yokosuka with both figures of him after 11:00 pm on the next day
Nozomi called out Ryo to tell how she feels about him.

You can find Mr. Yukawa having a drink in the bar. :D

I am so dumb I once had both figures but didn't much of it so I completed the game and later saved over it with a new game.

Well thats ok not to long ago I started a new game and i have 2 winning cans and the save is on the 4th of the month.......I sure hope I get em. :)

This is interesting! Gotta try this out, though I have the worst luck with winning raffle prizes, lol.
Shame is the spelling correction for Shenmue, thats what Sega should feel concerning Shenmue III
