The Sims 4 Snowy Escape: Meet the Residents of Mt. Komorebi!

The Akiyama Household

Household Description

The Akiyamas moved away from the hustle and bustle of the city to the quiet town where Kado was raised. The commute will be a sacrifice, but Kado and Jenna hope the close-knit community and beautiful natural atmosphere of the region will be worth it. Kado was surprised at the recent news that his childhood sweetheart Megumi Ito has also moved back to Mt. Komorebi. He’d love nothing more to leave the past in the past but the pieces of his broken teenaged heart are still tender.

Household Notes

  • Kado and Megumi are ex-lovers. While Megumi’s household description hints she might want to get past her Hurt sentiment about Kado and rekindle their love, Kado’s household description indicates that he wants to leave Megumi in the past and focus on his family.
  • While Kado has an awkward relationship with Megumi and the household description indicates his feelings are still hurt from their breakup, he does not have any Sentiments about her. It is Megumi that has the Hurt Sentiment about Kado.
  • Jenna does not appear to be of Japanese ancestry, making the Akiyamas an interracial family, though they are not the first interracial couple to be featured in The Sims 4. The first were the Spencer-Kim-Lewis and Pancakes families from the base game.
  • Taku and Miki may be twins. They are the same age and have extremely similar facial structures; however, there is no mention of them being twins in the game, so there is no way to know this for certain.
