How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Meet the friendly Kappa and talk to them. If you answer all of their questions, they will tell you where to find their treasure.

Attention! For finding this cache, you need to install the Metaverse App (available for iOS or Android). Open the app and click here or scan the code below to start the game.

Kappa AR Game QR Code

Please note that you cannot play the game until you have arrived at the listed coordinates and that it's not possible to play without Internet connection. You can answer each question only once! If you make a mistake, you need to return to the listed coordinates to try again. Expect to walk about 1km from the listed coordinates to the cache location, assuming that you answer all questions correctly the first time. Don't worry, the questions are not difficult.

Since this is a new type of cache, don't hesitate to message me (in English or Japanese) in case you encounter any problems. I'll do my best to help you.

Problem Solving Tips:
1. Some people have reported that they can only read the first part of the dialog texts. If you experience that problem, please use the “Kappa (short text version)” game. In that version, all dialogs are split into small fragments. You’ll have to press the continue button many times, but hopefully you’ll be able to read everything.
2. If you see a countdown on the display, don’t worry about it. It just indicates when the background music will stop playing. It won’t affect any other aspects of the game. You do not have to hurry to proceed to the next screen.

ps: Thanks to YukiTaka for testing the software.

This cache is part of an experiment that allows the use of Augmented Reality (AR) apps to find the cache. At the end of this experiment, Geocaching HQ will decide if this cache will be grandfathered or archived. Geocaching HQ reserves the right to archive this cache at any time if conditions change. If you have found this cache and would like to give feedback on your experience, please fill out this survey.
