    This is missable.

    The first time you head down the T-junction in Sakuragaoka, a cutscene will initiate in which Ryo encounters an old lady who is having trouble finding her friend's house. Ryo offers to help, telling the old lady to wait for him in the park just up the road.

    After the cutscene ends, turn around, head straight up the road to the house almost directly opposite the park (the one with the closed gate), zoom in on the little silver sign (which reads "Yamamoto") on the wall to the top-left of the gate with cn_LT, and press cn_A.

    Once Ryo confirms this is the correct house, enter the park, approach the old lady sitting on a swing, and Ryo will escort her to her friend's house.

    Ninja ScrollI started a new game and I never got the cut scene. I kept going back and forth between the towns hoping it would eventually pop up. No dice.
    I ran into her my girl game I’m still playing. Then met her at the park before I did what you said about zooming into that building and pressing A.
    Any chance she’ll return back to the playground?

    WhiterValkyrieMmmmh sorry but i don't know :/ Honnestly i don't thing. The game try simulate the real life. The woman will not wait at the playground for days like any other game.

    Mr GrenedaOn the first time she woesnt there. I reload my save by Ryus Dojo and run to the little girl with the cat. Give her the fishes (before i reload i gived her the tofu) after that i run to the phone booth and walk to her place. Not running. Shes triggerd at 12:15 o clook. First try i was 2pm there. Hope it helps

    Ninja Scroll@Mr Grenada, thank you sir. This worked for me as you suggested. Only thing is I did give the kitten tofu, so it appears it doesn’t matter what you feed it.
    It triggers for me when I walked to the area where the figurine machines are at the time yours happened. Glad I was able to get this very early in a new game. I’ll juat settle for 920 our of 1k in this game after this achievement. On to Shenmue II now.

    SONofGIANTS610Thanks for the solution definitely press A, just looking at it does not register as finding it.

    GuNsLiNgErX1983So the woman asked me to help but at the time I didn't know how to find the house easily. I now know and have found it but it's the next day. Do I just have to wander around the area until she shows up?

    WhiterValkyrieI don't know, maybe it's too late ! You must maybe make a new game, but it's right after the beginning so it's ok !
