Mei is Mugi’s granddaughter and she lives with him at Yodel Ranch. She is friends with Yu, and they can often be found playing in town or the forest.
Her birthday is on Winter 26th.
Everything you need to befriend Mei can be found in this guide.
Mei plays a lot outdoors, especially near Yodel Ranch where she lives. If the weather is favorable, she always visits Carter at the Church to listen to his stories.
|Monday||Yodel Ranch, Hot Spring|
|The rest of the week||Yodel Ranch, Church|
|Rainy or snowy||Yodel Ranch (indoors only)|
Mei loves flowers like the Pink Cat Flower and Toy Flower. She also loves to receive Honey and Fodder for the animals at Yodel Ranch.
Mei hates all spicy food, so she probably won’t appreciate it very much if you try to give them to her.

As you continue to raise your friendship points with Mei, you can unlock townsfolk events that allow you to get to know her better.
Unlike marriage candidates, you aren’t really required to respond with specific dialogue in order to gain their favor. Sometimes simply participating in the event is enough!
They also aren’t required to advance in your friendship with the non-marriageable villagers. Below is a list of each townsfolk event and the requirements needed to trigger them.
|Townsfolk Event||Friendship Points Required||Location||Requirements||Correct Dialogue Option|
|A Phone Call from Joanna||100 (8 friendship notes with Mei only)||Yodel Ranch (1st floor)||
|Kai Appears||–||South Mineral Town (near the entrance to Mineral Beach)||
Townsfolk events are one of the only ways you can unlock certain recipes, items, and quests in the game. Make sure you try to see them all in order to understand Mineral Town and its residents better.
Befriending Mei will not give you any recipes or special items. However, she is included in some cutscenes where you can gain extra friendship points with Kai.
