Tortimer's Vacation is an optional event in Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+. Tortimer goes on vacation and needs the player to light the lighthouse between 6:00 P.M. and 10:00 P.M. The player is given the option to do this and can decline.
The Lighthouse can be lit by going through the back-door of the Lighthouse, which is only accessible when the task has been accepted.
Tortimer telling the player about his vacation
Inside the Lighthouse, the player will see a switch which must be pulled by pressing "A", which will switch on the light. If this is done correctly each day for a week, Tortimer will reward the player with a Lighthouse model
(in January) or chocolates
(in February) after the week outside the player's house, even though he does not mention a reward when giving the player the task. When he greets the player, he soon reveals he went to "a luxurious hot springs resort." After doing so he then proceeds and hands over the reward.
Tortimer returning from his vacation
After he hands the reward to the player, he again mentions the resort saying he brought the reward back from the resort as a gift to the player.
