Leilani is a green turtle (kappa in the Japanese versions) that appears in the Animal Crossing series for the first time in Animal Crossing: New Leaf as the wife of Kapp'n. Along with the rest of Kapp'n's family, she works at the island and runs mini-games called tours.


Leilani provides multiple island utilities:

  • Registering the player for tours.
  • Allowing the player to return to their town.


Leilani's name means "heavenly lei" in Hawaiian.

NTSC-U: If you've had your fill of tropical-island adventures, Kapp'n's wife, Leilani, can arrange your trip home. She'll also happily sign you up for island tours. Her green skin isn't typical for tropical islanders, and that red hibiscus in her hair really suits her.

PAL: Leilani runs the information desk on Tortimer Island. If you want to play some minigames, she'll find the perfect tropical tour for you. Afterwards, she'll even call her husband, Kapp'n, to take you home again! To be honest, though, she's always a little surprised anybody would want to leave Tortimer Island at all.
