Kai is a villager that only comes to Mineral Town during the Summer. He owns the Beach Cafe and has a pleasant, easygoing attitude.

His birthday is on Summer 22nd.

If you set your farmer’s birthday on the same day, his birthday will be on Summer 17th instead.

It’s difficult to maintain a relationship with Kai at first because you’ll only see him for one season each year until you get married. If you want to befriend and eventually marry Kai, read on to find out how!

 

Schedule

You can typically find Kai around the beach in the Summer. His locations are convenient given that you don’t have to rush around the entirety of Mineral Town to find him.

He’ll either be in his shop, or lounging outside on the sand!

Kai’s favorite gift is Pineapple, which can be grown as a crop on your farm.
