How to Make It Night in "Okami" Without a Crescent Moon

"Okami" is an action-adventure video game released on the PS2 and Wii game consoles. The game tasks players with guiding the game's lead character, Amaterasu, through a series of puzzles, dungeons and maps by drawing "brushstrokes" using what is known as the "Celestial Brush." One of these brushstrokes, the "Crescent" brushstroke, changes the time of day from day to night, allowing you to complete night-only tasks. Since the game has an active day-night cycle that is constantly progressing, if you want to make it night time without the "Crescent" brushstroke, you must simply wait it out.
Walk out of the house, dungeon or village that you currently find yourself in. In order for time to pass, you must be located on the game's main map.
Wait on the game's main map for time to progress. The in-game day-night cycle progresses much faster than our 24-hour day-night cycle, meaning you will only have to wait for a few minutes for several hours to progress in-game. Roughly one minute of real time equates to one hour in-game.
Continue to wait until the sun has gone down and the moon has risen. It is now night in the "Okami" game world.
