The secret is completely hidden in the grid of a go board.

Over one hundred million copies of the mega hit DETECTIVE CONAN comic books have already been released in Japan. The stage of the next feature starring our hero Conan, will be in the ancient Japanese capital of Kyoto, the city of Osaka and Tokyo.
The five victims of a serial murder case are members of the confederacy of thieves, called Genji Botaru. They have repeatedly stolen famous Buddha statues and precious art collections.
One of the highlights of this feature is the activities of Heiji, a high school detective, who is on of Conans greatest rivals, helping to solve the case. Conan happens to run into Heiji, who appears along with his girlfriend Kazuha! Viewers can enjoy watching the two couples Conan and Ran, Heiji and Kazuha as well as the versatile tricks that are introduced in the film.
Conan visits Kyoto along with his girlfriend Ran, her best friend and Kogoro to find out about the national treasure that had been stolen eight years ago from the distinguished Sanno Temple with a long historical standing. The only clue to the whereabouts of the treasure is to decode a mysterious picture. Conan, who suspects that the theft case may in some way be connected to the serial murder case, sets off to resolve the case. There is a youth who visits Kyoto just a bit earlier than Conans group to investigate the murder case. It is Heiji. Although the two boys are usually in strife with each other, this time, the two super detectives join hands to save their best friend in the most unexpected way. A childrens song opens the door of memory that leads to reveal the truth that is hidden in the picture.
Will Conan be able to walk out of the crossroad of a hundred years of history?
