The Open Archive (丸見えアーカイブ?, lit.: "Completely Visible Archive") is a treasure in the European and Japanese versions of Pikmin 2, where it is a tin of Imuraya-brand red bean paste. It is found on the fourth sublevel of Submerged Castle. Along with two sets of Bulbmin, there is a Careening Dirigibug and Volatile Dweevils, as well as bomb-rocks falling from above throughout. This treasure could be anywhere; it is large and, therefore, hard to miss. Remember to be quick so as to avoid a confrontation with the Waterwraith.

The container is open, but not broken,[sic] this is a very reveiling[sic] design, which does not conceal it's[sic] contents. This is an incomprehensible concept for our culture.

Sales pitch

To be used only for those who have nothing to hide: A personal container with an open design. Well, if it's always empty...
