The Curiosity Shop Back Room is a location in Majora's Mask.[1]

Features and Overview

After Sakon steals the Sun's Mask from Kafei, Kafei takes up residence inside the Back Room of the Curiosity Shop. As he does not want to return to his fiancée in his condition without the Sun's Mask,[2] he decides to remain in the Back Room while watching for Sakon through a peephole in the wall connecting the Curiosity Shop and its Back Room.[3]

For most of Link's stay in Termina, the Curiosity Shop Back Room is inaccessible, with the only entrance being a door in the Laundry Pool, which Kafei keeps locked. If Link meets with Anju and delivers the Letter to Kafei to a Mailbox,[4] he can slip by Kafei and enter his residence as the Postman delivers the Letter to him in person. After Kafei reads the Letter, he will return to the Back Room, leaving it unlocked while waiting to meet with the green-clad child described in the Letter.[5] If Link agrees to keep his whereabouts hidden from Anju, Kafei will confide his story to Link before asking him to deliver the Pendant of Memories to Anju as an affirmative symbol of their relationship.[6][7]

If Link has not stopped Sakon from stealing the Bomb Bag from the Old Lady from Bomb Shop, Kafei will watch Sakon sell it to the Man from Curiosity Shop before following him to Sakon's Hideout in Ikana Canyon. Afterwards, the Man from Curiosity Shop can be found inside the Curiosity Shop Back Room waiting for Link. There, he informs Link about Kafei's departure and asks him to deliver the Special Delivery to Mama from Kafei to Madame Aroma on his behalf.[8][9][10] He will also give the Keaton Mask to Link after explaining that he once gave it to Kafei long ago and that Kafei used it to convince him of his peculiar neotenic condition.[11]

  2. "I know Anju is worried...but I can't go out yet. I made a promise to her that I would bring the wedding mask and greet her." — Kafei (Majora's Mask)
  3. "Things that get stolen in this town always make their way to the Curiosity Shop. I'm waiting for that to happen. Stand on that crate and peek into that hole. From here, I check on the Curiosity Shop's customers. That guy will definitely appear. I'll be waiting when it happens." — Kafei (Majora's Mask)
  4. "Here is my letter. Please put this in a postbox. When this is delivered...When he receives my letter... You should be able to meet him!" — Anju (Majora's Mask)
  5. "Green hat... Green clothes... Anju wrote about you in her letter. It seems you are looking for Kafei." — Kafei (Majora's Mask)
  6. "...Can you keep a secret? [Yes] Anju trusted you. I shall also trust you. I am Kafei. I was turned into this by a strange imp wearing a mask... But I'm not hiding because I look this way. When I was turned into this, I went to see the Great Fairy in the shrine near the North Gate... But on the way, my precious mask--a wedding ceremony mask--was stolen from me by some prancing man with a grinning face! Before my wedding ceremony I was quite happy. I was targeted because of what I had been turned into." — Kafei (Majora's Mask)
  7. "This pendant... Give it to Anju. Keep what we just talked about a secret from everyone." — Kafei (Majora's Mask)
  8. "Huh? You the green hat kid? I got a message from Kafei. Now Kafei... I've known him since he was real little... But when he showed up looking all young in that little brat body, I didn't know what I was seeing!" — Man from Curiosity Shop (Majora's Mask)
  9. "Now Kafei... He says he wants you to take this to his mother." — Man from Curiosity Shop (Majora's Mask)
  10. "A customer came to my shop last night... Now Kafei sees him, and Kafei's color just changes and he goes runnin' after the guy. The guy's a regular... A greedy thief named Sakon. I think he's from Ikana Village..." — Man from Curiosity Shop (Majora's Mask)
  11. "All it took was one glance at that Keaton Mask he was carrying for me to realize that I was looking at my old friend. I gave him that mask a long time ago when he was just li'l Kafei. Didn't know he kept it that well for so long... I'm not sure why, but...I want to give this to you." — Man from Curiosity Shop (Majora's Mask)
