Interior of the Mouri Detective Agency.

The Mouri Detective Agency (毛利探偵事務所 Mōri Tantei Jimusho?) is a private detective agency run by Kogoro Mouri, which serves as one of the central settings in the Detective Conan franchise and Zero's Tea Time, as well as having a brief cameo appearance in the Magic Kaito TV Specials. According to the manga, it is on the first floor of a building in the fifth block of the Beika Town district (米花町5丁目 Beika-chō 5-chōme?).[1] in the (fictonal) Beika Ward (Beika City in the extended canon) of Tokyo. According to The Meguro Sanma Case, it is located at lot number 39 (39番地 39-banchi?), but this information is non-canon.

Café Poirot is located right below it, on the ground floor. On the floor above it the associated apartment of Kogoro and his daughter Ran Mouri can be found, in which Shinichi Kudo has also been living since his involuntary rejuvenation to Conan Edogawa, in order to have a possible source of information about the organization.

Tokyo Tower is less than 1.34 km (0.83 mi) away from the Mouri Detective Agency.

Later on its specified to be located somewhere inside a radius of less than 1.34 kilometres (~0.83 miles) around the Shorodo right next to it, with the equally fictional districts of Buroku and Sutan inbetween.[2] The location of those and the part of Beika the detective agency is in would, in real life, somewhere be in an area that partly encompasses the districts of Mita, the Shiba area, Kaigan, Atago, the Shinbashi area, Toranomon, Akasaka, Roppongi and Azabu, which are all inside the Minato Ward, just like the tower itself.

Drama[edit]

The Mouri Detective Agency in the live action dramas.

The building used as the filming location for the Mouri Detective Agency is the "Teito Building" in real life, located at number 2−4 of the third block in Uchi-Kanda district in the Chiyoda Ward of Tokyo. Coincidentally, it seemed to be the home of a law office in real life once (and a tax consulting firm nowadays) and, like its manga counterpart, is relatively close to Tokyo Tower.
