Unlimited Money Cheat
Take the 500 yen you are given each day from the table and leave the house. Return to the house and enter your room. Leave your room and 500 more yen will be on the table. Repeat this as much as needed to collect an unlimited amount of money. submitted by Sanryo

Unlimited Raises
On your second day of work, get 5 or more crates into warehouse #3 before lunch. Then the mad angels won't attack you. You just keep repeating the same day over and over until you get tired of it, but the good thing about it is that you get a raise everyday. Just make sure you have 8 crates in by 5.

Better Store Prizes
When in the tomato convenience store if you buy a box of Shenmue candy (potato crisps, chocolate or caramel). Buy caramel and when she asks you to draw a ticket, wait until you see the A button blinking and count to 5. The closer you get to when Ryo draws the ticket himself the better prize you get. Works almost every time. Timing is everything.

Real weather
Complete the game and save the Clear Data to unlock "Magic Weather" on the Settings menu in the Options screen. This option allows the weather in the game to match the actual weather on that date in 1986 and 1987 in Yokosuka.

Reverse control configuration for Space Harrier

Get a bad ending

When you get to the part where the gaurds are on the second disk, instead of going to warehouse #8 just play around untill the beginning of summer. Then, a video will come up with Lin Di killing you like he kill your father.
