Ta-na-ba-ta
I think the idea of Ta-na-ba-ta is to escape the room by somehow navigating your way passed the cat guarding the door - there are plenty of items to point'n'click and collect, but there is a bit of a language barrier, despite some English making an appearance [subbed by crazylegs].

cat
SPOILER: (click box to reveal/hide)
give the coin to the cat (after you used it for something else)

orange paper

keep clicking the place where you turn the pages, you see some pages with nothing on it, but keep clicking

To get orange paper


SPOILER: (click box to reveal/hide)
you have to have passed the cat and gotten outside
.


SPOILER: (click box to reveal/hide)
When outside: decorate bamboo three with all your paper art. Then collect dew from the flowers in the bowl. Then go inside to the table and use the water on the black square bowl, then use black thingy beside it and then use the burning stick on that. That should make it possible to get the orange paper.

For my last spoiler (see above)


SPOILER: (click box to reveal/hide)
when I said black thingy, I meant the thing lying on the table beside the smoking stick. Basically just mess around with the items lying on the table, make sure that you haven't marked any items in your inventory..
