One of the many side quests or side cases as this game calls them, that you can complete is Where The Kappa Roam. This specific quest involves searching for the Kappa statues
Side Cases can be found and completed in both Isezaki Ijincho and Kamurocho. Simply head to the bulletin board in Yokohama 99 or find them on the map

- One of these people talking will mention that they managed to sell a kappa for 300 yen at a nearby Pawn Store. Be sure to listen to their full conversation as this will then allow us to go and buy it.
- After listening to their conversation head to Misaki St and more specifically to the Benten Pawn here. Purchase the kappa statue for 100 yen
KAPPA STATUE #7

- Here a scene will play out and then the side case will then end
- (NOTE: If the scene does not play then try to leave the area and re-enter. Also make sure that it is not interfering with the story. For me I was playing on Premium Adventure and ended up having to rest on the couch before it would trigger)
