The roof is a location in Mii Apartments that appears in Tomodachi Collection and Tomodachi Life (JP). In all other versions of Tomodachi Life, it is replaced by the observation tower, and only appears as a hidden location.


The roof of Mii Apartments is, as the name implies, a typical apartment rooftop, featuring a tiled ground and a chain-link fence around the border. At the northeast corner is a doorway leading back to the apartment building, which is also where the player can access the roof. Beside the door are a pair of radiators, presumably for the building's ventilation. Around the chain fence, there are several benches that the Miis will typically use to sit on.

Mii Interactions

In Collection, the roof is only available as a possible location for Miis to stage their confession at. The roof is not accessible at any other time.

In Life, there are several different things that can take place on the roof. As it is the Japanese equivalent of the observation tower, Miis using the roof can usually do the same things they could do at the tower, such as:

  • Look at the island below while standing on stools
  • Sleep on the benches
  • Stare into space
  • Wave at planes flying over the roof
  • Use certain level-up gifts, including the baseball bat, the golf club, and the tennis racket
  • Confess their love to their crush
  • Participate in Quirky Questions

Strange Letter Problem

In Life, a Mii will receive a strange letter from someone wanting to meet them on the roof. The Mii, having no idea who wrote it, will ask the player whether or not they should go. If the player says yes, a cutscene will occur, in which the Mii will go up to the roof and find another Mii, wearing square glasses and a fake mustache, who will say something odd to them, before walking away. Sometimes, they will give the Mii a photo or piece of paper. Depending on the speed given to the disguised Mii, the player can see them stop walking away before the screen fades to white.

When the cutscene ends, the Mii will return to their apartment, wondering who the Mii was, before dismissing the experience almost immediately. If they were given a photo or slip of paper, they will wonder what they are supposed to do with it. The Mii will earn some happiness from this activity.

If the player tells the Mii not to go, they will say that it is creepy and are better off not going. They will not gain any happiness.
