To enter the JUNKYARD, players must first obtain the BLUE KEY.
Interacting with toilets can sometimes drop RAMEN.
OMORI learns how to TAG other party members in the JUNKYARD. This mechanic allows the team to proceed further in the story.
The OLD RADIO is able to receive signal in the JUNKYARD. It plays morse code and various mumbling sounds over an eerie tune, and occasionally seems to tune into different radio stations that play different types of music.
There is a couch in the JUNKYARD. Upon sitting on the couch, the team can look at the large moon across the horizon. KEL throws something in the air as they sit. There is a RED KEY located just east of the couch.
In the area in which there is a blue gate and a red gate, there is a picnic blanket beyond the blue gate. Going south from the picnic blanket is an area with a "DO NOT CROSS" line. Crossing this line triggers a battle with the DOWNLOAD WINDOW.
|Am I in your way? I'm so sorry. I'll move over.|
Players will not be able to progress further into the area due to a block. After interacting with the block, AUBREY will let OMORI know that much like how OMORI can cut away roots and traffic cones, she can smash blocks.
Once AUBREY is in the lead, she will be able to smash the block with her bat, allowing players to continue forth.
In the next area, there will be a large round of cheese blocking the next area. Interacting with the cheese causes AUBREY to attempt to smash the cheese with her bat. HERO realizes that the item blocking their path is cheese and he then asks to be in the lead. Tagging HERO allows him to call his animal friend, EMS who will then proceed to eat away the cheese and allowing the team access to the next area of the JUNKYARD.
In the following area, there is a gate that requires a key to get through. Interacting with the metal signal tower causes AUBREY to note that the key is too high to reach. HERO starts to suggest they call one of his friends, but KEL interrupts and asks to be put in the lead. Tagging KEL allows him to climb to the top of the tower and retrieve the key.
Using the BLUE KEY retrieved from the top of the tower allows the party to proceed to the next area.
Interacting with the blue gate causes AUBREY to look around for a BLUE KEY. The BLUE KEY is on top of a pole studded with nails. AUBREY suggests KEL to grab the KEY, but he cannot due to "the incident." HERO covers for KEL. Tagging HERO calls CRUE the SPACE PIRATE crow, who will be able to retrieve the key for the party.
After the interaction with CRUE, KEL comments that HERO has a lot of friends because of his CHARM. HERO says that it is not just CHARM that makes him popular, but it is also his handsomeness. To this, AUBREY and KEL are left speechless.
In the "DO NOT CROSS" area of the JUNKYARD, the players notice a Sprout Mole with a bow in her hair who snatches the SWEETHEART CASSETTE. She announces herself as "ROSA, the #1 SWEETHEART fan in the world." When KEL tries to confront her, ROSA runs away from the team, initiating a chase around the JUNKYARD, OTHERWORLD OUTSKIRTS, and to SPROUT MOLE COLONY.
During this chase, it is revealed that one of the cranes is just a cardboard cutout. ROSA knocks this over, effectively creating a shortcut route around the JUNKYARD
