Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse is usually very clear about where you’re supposed to go. But there are occasions where that isn’t the case. In Phase 6, roughly halfway through the game, you’re given the directive to “search underneath the Haibara Infirmary.” This is a bit of an odd request since, while you’ve been there as Choshiro, you haven’t actually traveled between the two locations directly before. And while the game usually signposts exactly where you’re meant to go, you may have to look around a bit. This guide will tell you how to search underneath the Haibara Infirmary in Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse by finding the connecting passage between it and the Rogetsu Hall. It’s not tricky, but knowing is most of the battle.
When you get this direction, you’ll be running from a ghost lady. The connecting passageway door is one you’ve walked past repeatedly, although you likely didn’t know it. From the dining room (the room with the projector on the first floor of the Rogetsu Hall), exit into the room with the elevator and the save point.
Everything you need for the first couple parts of this task is here. Walk forward as far as you can and then take a left down the hallway where you’ll find the blue door in the picture above. Take a photo of it with your camera and it’ll give you the following clue:
If you don’t know where that is, it’s close by. Take a right and re-enter the room with the save point and lift on the first floor. There’s a rusty door on the back wall of that room facing the same way as the blue doors. Go through it and you’ll see the hole from the above photo.
How to find the Haibara Infirmary connecting passageway in Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse
Reaching into it will get you the key to the doors, which lead into the connecting passage to the Haibara Infirmary. Once you go through these doors, you’ll need to dispatch a couple of spirits. Then just proceed into the infirmary. Again, Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse isn’t all that clear about how you’re supposed to get underneath the Haibara Infirmary. There are a couple of staircases downward from the first floor, but you can’t access them. The elevator also only has B1 listed below the first floor and that leads to a dead end for now.
What you want to do is press the unmarked button below B1. This will take you right where you need to go. With this, you’ll be able to reach the connecting passage and search underneath the Haibara Infirmary in Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse.
