Sunset Manor

The Sunset Manor (黄昏の館 Tasogare no yakata?) is a huge western-style manor house in the isolated mountains of Matsumoto, six miles from a lonely gas station.[1] According to Kogoro, it looks more like Dracula's Castle, and up close even more like a haunted house. It once belonged to the multi-millionaire Renya Karasuma, who inherited it from his mother. It was brought two years ago by Shukuzen Ogami, who search for the treasure until Furuyo Senma killed him. It's a Golden Manor, made of gold and painted black, and since Karasuma is a crow-like man, personified his nest.


  • "Sunset Manor" derived from the homonim novel written by Kiyoshi Kasai. It shares similarities with Hell Hal in One Hundred and One Dalmatians.
  • The anime version's huge painting in the dining room is a replica of Lucas de Heere's The Queen of Sheba visits King Solomon, but with an inverted orientation, and the one in the piano room is about Corvin Castle. Just like the story of Solomon, the wisest but later corrupt king in the Old Testament, since sunset also indicates an idea of "glorious sun that goes out" as the wrath of heaven, Renya Karasuma was the richest and most powerful man in all of modern Japan, but eventually became like Dracula for his own personal profit. Moreover, since he had came from afar to decipher Karasuma's riddle, Conan is also like the great Queen of Sheba. Then, the Sunset Manor is modeled after Solomon's Golden Temple, depicted in the background, and that castle.
  • Many anime version's paintings are from The Fourteenth Target, although with an inverted orientation: in the dining room, the one with cherry in bloom from The Mist Goblin Legend Murder Case in the French Restaurant "La Fleur", and the one with a sunset beach woman in Aquacrystal restaurant, but both divided into two; in the piano room, the one with Corvin Castle in Sawaki's apartment. Those with trees foliage and a sunset beach woman in the dining room appeared in the apartment building front entrance from The Historical Actor Murder Case, as correct orientation but respectively with cherry blossom petals and cut out the woman, and the first in the Izu Queen Hotel from Scuba Diving Murder Case and in Yokosuka Castle from The Last Wizard of the Century, but in white and black, and in The Truth Behind Valentine's without foliage. In The Shaking Restaurant, the past scene when Aiko Morimura, a girl on Hachijou Island, looked at the sunset sea waiting twenty-one years for her lover's return from Tokyo while bringing up her secret daughter and then died alone last spring after suffered all the hardships, is clearly modeled after the oil painting with a sunset beach woman, appeared even in a hotel room from The Ten Planets in the Night Sky. Those with scribbles and an island in the piano room didn't appear before. Open spoiler box to see images.
