As the group gathers at the breeding hut, professor Kobayashi proposes to split up and search for the location of each code: The groups are Conan, Ayumi, Haibara and Murata, professor Kobayashi, Mitsuhiko and Ichihashi, and professor Wakasa, Genta and Yanagimachi. Genta and Mitsuhiko protest about the fact that Conan can go with the girls, but soon give up, as Wakasa and Kobayashi say that they are girls too. Conan in his thoughts reveals that the reason for him making this particular grouping was to ensure he could keep an eye on Murata who identified Haibara as Shiho Miyano in the previous chapter. Conan also remembers the suspicious reaction of the three suspects to the code Akemi made.

Conan's group first heads to the principal's office, having found out that the code, that was talking about Claude Monet, a French painter, was referring to the principal's office, as the latter owned a replica of San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk. In the office, the group begins searching for clues, and Conan notices that the painting hung on the wall wasn't the replica anymore, but Murata's painting, which won an award. Conan asks Murata what kind of person Akemi was, to which he replies that she was a bright, kind and thoughtful person, and that he was in love with her, like much of the class. Haibara, who heard his comment, smiles as it makes her remember her sister. Murata wants to reveal the truth about the painting, which is related to Akemi, but doesn't finish his sentence as he is too hesitant to do so.

At the infirmary, Mitsuhiko's group are also searching for clues, their part of the code, "Doctor, don't tell a lie", pointing to the place. Mitsuhiko starts by looking at the sink, saying that the english words "tell a lie" sound like "te arai", which means to wash hands in Japanese. Ichihashi remarks that Mitsuhiko that he is pretty smart, and professor Kobayashi replies that shouldn't Ichihashi be also smart, since she was a nurse. This statement makes her remember Akemi. Genta's group headed to the home economics classroom, because their part of the code, "89 charms, don't burn", would most likely point to a stove, and the classroom had them. Rumi and Genta come to remember that Kobayashi had said there was almost a fire in the music room a long time ago. This is said to have happened about 14-15 years ago, and therefore also during the school days of the current firefighter Yanagimachi, but he explains that he has never heard of it. He secretly remembers how he and two other boys secretly played with fireworks on the school grounds and were caught by Akemi.

The groups meet again at the animal enclosure, but no one has found a clue or even the time capsule. The groups have been to all the rooms, but have always just missed each other and never met. Kobayashi suggests involving the other reunion attendees, but Murata, Ichihashi and Yanagimachi quickly dismiss the idea and prefer to continue the search in a small group, as they have come up with a few new ideas. Conan decides that they will form a large group this time, while Haibara, Genta, Mitsuhiko and Ayumi stay at the animal enclosure and continue to look after the class rabbits.

Suddenly there are clues in many places. In the principal's office, the hiragana "yo" is written on the wall behind the painting; in the assembly hall, the hiragana "u" can be found next to a clock. In the art room, Murata and Ichihashi remember that back in their school days, it was forbidden to paint landscape paintings on the roof after a girl almost fell off the roof due to the wind, which is why the group rushes to the roof, as there might be a clue there in connection with the code. Without telling the other members of the group, Conan finds the hiragana "gu" on a clock in the art room. But the hiragana "gu" can also be found on the door to the roof. In the infirmary, Seiko now finds the hiragana "shi" written under one of the beds. But Conan finds the same hiragana again next to a scale. Using the syllables "Yo", "U", "Gu" and "Shi", the group comes up with the solution: in the end, the word "Yo-u-gu-shi-tsu" must come out, which means "equipment room", no other word would make sense. The former students want to go there, but Kobayashi has some bad news: the equipment room from back then no longer exists.

The group reads old reports on an old computer in the library. In fact, the equipment room had become too dilapidated; it was torn down ten years ago and replaced by a public restroom. It can therefore be assumed that the time capsule was destroyed. But Conan knows better: he has recognized the true solution to the puzzle code and therefore knows the real hiding place of the time capsule. He has also figured out why one of the former students is sabotaging the search. The saboteur remembers how Akemi asked this person back then to summon up his courage. Meanwhile, the class reunion has ordered sushi from Iroha Sushi next to the Mouri Detective Agency, where Kanenori Wakita is getting ready for a delivery to Teitan Elementary School.
