Matsutake is a special type of mushroom you can only find during Autumn in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town. They’re the main ingredient for some recipes, and many villagers love to receive them as gifts.
Where To Find Matsutakes
Matsutake are only forageable during Autumn.
The most common place to find Matsutake is near the Bamboo Thicket, directly behind the large boulder. To access this location, you must break the boulder with a Level 3 (Gold) or higher Hammer.
Note: you can only find one Matsutake here at a time.
But here’s a list of both locations where you can forage Matsutakes, and we’ve marked them on the town map below:
- Bamboo Thicket – behind the large boulder south of the lake
- Church Forest – behind Carter’s secret door in Mineral Church (unlocked after 8 friendship notes with Carter)
New Matsutake will respawn every couple of days during Autumn, so make sure to visit whenever you’re in the area.
Matsutake can be consumed to restore a moderate amount of stamina. However, it does not offer any fatigue recovery.

To sell to Huang, hold the item in your hands and interact with him over the counter.
