By 🍒 Lilly (🌸◠‿◠) and 1 collaborators
In order to obtain all the achievements, one playthrough is enough; however a lot of them are missable. After you complete the game, you unlock a chapter select menu that also shows you how many achievements you are missing in a chapter. Alternatively, there is a menu option to restart the current in-progress chapter in case you missed something early on in a chapter.
A couple of achievements are timed and require fast clicking.
Chapter 01: Home
🏆 Do you know the Mountain Spirit? (Missable)
Click on the man hitting a stone slab below the chicken coop.

🏆 Return (Missable)
After picking up both pickaxes, you will be asked whether to return or to go to the quarry.
Choose to return (up).

🏆 Chicken picker (Missable)
Talk to the man next to the chicken coop. You will receive a quest to find all his chickens.
Two are on the first screen with their owner, three on the second, and three on the third. Some of the chickens are hiding in the moving bamboo groves around the area.
Chapter 02: Quarry
🏆 Empress's jewel (Missable)
Talk to the NPC on the left of the tree near your cart to receive the jewel quest.
Click on the monkey hidden in the bamboo grove on her right, and then spam-click to win the fight.

🏆 Sneaky monkeys! (Story)
Awarded for completing the quest given by the Alchemist. Defeat three monkeys by spam-clicking.

🏆 Full cart (Missable)
Awarded for completing the stone-mining quest without overloading the cart. From the third stage on, you need to mine the correct stones so that you get the exact desired rock count, as shown in mouse-over tooltips. The solutions are:
#1:5 (can't be missed)
#2: 8+2 = 10 (can't be missed)
#3: 8+2 = 10
#4: 8+7 = 15
#5: 7+6+9+11 = 33

At the pond, before clicking the rest of the quest markers, click on the 3 fish. After you click the first one, small markers appear on the others.

Chapter 06: As the nobleman (in your house)

Two are in the rice fields, one right of the left of the noise source, one in the far bottom left and the last one in the far bottom right. If you accidentally focus on the quest marker, you can still go back and scout the area.

Afterwards, click on the emperor's palanquin to progress.

If you have done the first step of this achievement, you will automatically receive the achievement when you reach the bridge and talk to the guard.
Chapter 08: As the emperor (in the gardens)
🏆 Good morning, young master (Missable)

🏆 Flower collector (Missable)
🏆 Gardener (Missable)
When you start your walk through the garden, you will have to talk to the NPC standing next to an empty flower bed and follow the quest by planting flowers in each of the garden spots.
In the last location (where you can place plants freely):
For "Flower collector", make sure to have at least one of each of the 9 different plantable flowers simultaneously. Plant at least one of each type (each click on a tile switches it to the next flower in order, going back to empty after the 9th).
For the "Gardener" achievement, fill in all the tiles in the last location.

Here is an example of how it should look like in the end: the different flowers are marked with 1-9, the rest of the spots are filled with type 1 flower.
