SUBSTORY QUEST: The Love-Starved Husband

CHAPTER: Chapter 5 – The Iron Code

QUEST GIVER: Contemplating Man

REWARDS: 150 Virtue

LOCATION: Teramachi (Rakunai)


Head to Teramachi, near the bridge that leads to Gion. Here we will find a man standing, looking and watching the river. Speak to him

The man will admit that the location is nice. That he enjoys being here. However, there is something that can be improved and that is a homemade meal. This will then force us to head to Haruka’s property and cook a meal. It does not matter which meal. Anything will do. I made a ‘Katemeshi’ as the ingredients are already at the property. So it was easier to make.

Once you have the cooked meal return back to the client and choose the ‘Why not?’ option. Both the ‘Love-Starved Husband’ and ‘Ryoma’ enjoy a meal together whilst watching the river. The man also continues to mention his wife. Apparently she is a horrible cook and a lazy person in general. He also thinks that the home cooked meal was done by Ryoma’s wife.

A new ‘Friendship Bond’ will unlock.


I gave the stranger some food I made. He thought it was actually made by a loving wife..
