"I found a couple of survivors in the bookstore in Wonderland Plaza. They look Japanese. Probably tourists."
Otis Washington

Japanese Tourists (A & B) is a scoop in Dead Rising and Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop.

It takes place in Sir Book-a-lot in Wonderland Plaza on the late evening of the first day. In Chop Till You Drop, It takes place in the Lovely Fashion House in the middle of the second day.

Frank will meet two foreign tourists, Yuu Tanaka and Shinji Kitano, who do not speak any English.


Frank will receive a call from Otis about a pair of Japanese tourists in a bookstore in Wonderland Plaza. When Frank arrives to Sir Book-a-lot, he will find the pair of men fleeing from them, jumping onto the bookcases to escape from who they think is a zombie.

In order to calm them down, Frank grabs the Japanese Conversation book lying on the ground by the register. After picking it up and speaking to them, they will be able to understand Frank.

After some arguing about why they had to vacation to Willamette, and With Frank's reassurance, they will join Frank and can be escorted back to the Security Room.



  • This is the only scoop requiring a book to complete.
  • Both men make short statements repeatedly in English, such as "what's happening here", similar to other survivors, despite not speaking English. However, this is just a limit in game mechanics.
  • Like many scoops, this scoop has additional food (apples) in the store, which is only available during the scoop.
