It's summer break, so what better place is there for high school students to go other than the sea? Kindaichi Hajime, Nanase Miyuki and Saki have decided that, as the school's "Mystery Club", a trip to the sea would make for a nice relaxing summer school trip. However the minshuku they chose for their trip is a touch more atmospheric than they had counted on or would generally care for. Behind the minshuku, there is a huge old graveyard filled with decrepit graves, and beyond that is an old elementary school which was nicknamed Bourei Gakko or Ghost School and is said to be haunted with none other than the famous ghost Hanako. Rumour has it that Hanako's ghost haunts the inner-most toilet in the girl's washroom. What better place for a "Mystery Club" to spend their summer trip indeed!
While at the minshuku, the Mystery Club members met Yamashina High School's art club which was also staying at the minshuku. Since the art club had but four members, the two groups decided to team together for a round of table tennis before dinner, and thereafter for a game of "dare". The seven teenagers, one at a time were to go to Hanako's toilet and get a ping pong ball from a canister left behind by the first "victim". For lighting? A candle of course! Not an easy dare at the best of times let alone in such an eery place as the school was located.
Still, going through with the dare, the seven students went to the cemetary beyond which was the now abandoned elementary school. All was going well with the game until the last person didn't return. What happened to Inou Kouhei and where did he disappear to? Deciding to go after the missing student, the other six went back to the school to discover... no one. Inou had disappeared. But before doing so, someone had left behind a trail of red in the toilet. Could it be that Inou decided to play a prank on the other students?
