Characters introduced[edit]





During the night of the Tenkaichi Festival at the hotel, the author named Satoru Imatake is brushing his teeth in the bathroom and his friend named Norikazu Sasai is making a mess. When he checked what Sasai's doing, he's confused that Sasai dressed up weird and saw that the hotel room was a big mess. Sasai raises his gun to aim at Imatake's forehead and fired. He also took the rest of the money from his wallet.

Location: Hotel room
Victim: Satoru Imatake
Cause of death: Gunshot wound
Culprit: Norikazu Sasai
The award-winning author, Satoru Imatake, was killed in his hotel room on the night of the Tenkaichi Festival. A man was seen fleeing the scene of shooting.

He went out of the hotel room and fled out of the hotel. He throws away his gun, coat, and his glasses. He took the disposable camera out of his pocket.

While at the Tenkaichi Festival, Ran, Conan, and Kogoro are having a good time. Sasai just finally arrived at the festival while sweating. He found Ran and asked her to take a picture of him behind the background of the mountain that says, "Ichi" so Sasai gives the camera to Ran and Ran takes a picture. Sasai tells Ran that he's collecting an archive based on the theme, "Local Festivals" which is the photo that Ran took. Ran realizes that he's an author. Sasai also told Ran that he writes with the pen name, Tomokazu Imai. After Ran hears that, she got excited that she read about it while at junior high. Kogoro thinks it's strange because he mentions that name was used by Satoru Imatake when he made his debut. Sasai also told them that he's a friend of Imatake and he will drink in celebration for Imatake's Naomoto award. Suddenly, Sasai's sweating more because he's wearing a white jacket. After the conversation, Sasai asked Ran if she could take more pictures of him around the festival and Ran doesn't mind at all. While she's taking pictures of Sasai, the man just appeared behind Sasai. The man's name is Yokomizo, he's a policeman. He wants Sasai for questioning because Imatake's been murdered at the hotel where Sasai is staying.
