Advice for Harris Part 1

Date: Any

Time: 7:00 PM onwards

To view this event, you must be married to any of the girls in the game. When you leave your house after 7:00 PM, Harris may show up and ask you for some relationship advice. He tells you he has a crush on Duke and Manna’s daughter Aja, who has moved away from Mineral Town.

Harris wants to write Aja a letter but is unsure of what to say. Tell him to write to Aja his honest feelings for her. Harris will then thank you for your advice and leave.

Advice for Harris Part 2

Date: Any

Time: Any

When you’ve helped Harris during the first time he came to your farm, he will come back a month later to inform you he has received a reply from Aja. She reveals that she already has a boyfriend in the city. Instead of being upset about this news, Harris is instead happy for Aja and thanks you once again for your advice.

Gotz’s Past

Date: Sundays, any season

Time: 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Visit Gotz’s house between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM on a Sunday. Inside, you’ll find Harris and Gotz talking about patrolling the mountains.

As the town’s local police officer, Harris feels that it’s his responsibility to patrol Mother’s Hill. Gotz insists on doing it, remembering how his family tragically lost their lives on the mountain. He thinks that keeping the mountain safe will make his family rest peacefully.

Customers for Kai

Date: Any date, summer season only

Time: 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Harris is one of the customers who visits Kai’s restaurant during this event.

Visit Kai’s restaurant at Mineral Beach between 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM. Kai tells you he doesn’t have any customers. Popuri shows up with a lot of customers, and now Kai is worried that it’ll be too difficult for him to cook for all of them. You agree to help Kai, and he thanks you for your help.

Note: The day will end when you trigger this event, so finish all your tasks before going to the beach.
