Tree of Dates is unlocked through normal game play when a player reaches level 14.
Players can 'pay to play' Tree of Dates from level 12 onward, where they can choose to pay with crystals (which will need to be bought with real money) to unlock the Picture early, rather than waiting until they reach level 14 and unlock it for free through normal game play.
Tree of Dates was introduced during the Valentines 2014 Update. Tree of Dates is a special item picture, which means that a set number of special items are needed in addition to energy points for each play. The special items needed for Tree of Dates are Cupid's Arrows. The number of Cupid's Arrows needed for each play of Tree of Dates depends on the picture's scene progress level, starting at 5 Cupid Arrows per play at Trainee level and increasing by 5 at each new level, up to 45 Cupid's Arrows per play at Grand Magister level. Cupid's Arrows are given as rewards for every successful investigation of Venice and Throne Room.
Tree of Dates is the only picture which rewards these Combining Elements: Thread, Needle, Pin, Thimble, Heart, Postcard, Rose, and Candle.
From the Diary:
"Christy's grandmother, Jacqueline, asked me to find her missing photograph. It was a picture of the place where she had the most wondrous date and it was very precious to her. Later, when I found the picture, I saw that it was a photograph of a beautiful place full of love and romance."

- When the picture was first released, on some devices the Bubble Blower hidden object could have been behind the banner at the bottom of the screen listing the items to be found. The only way to remove the Bubble Blower was by using dynamite. This was fixed by a later Update.
- The Hanami Festival Update (April 2018) renamed several hidden object items.
