The day after the Bon Festival in Kyoto a man is found stabbed to death. The man's body is discovered at a shrine in Nishigamo. The police are able to ID the man as the president of a high-end fashion company. At the scene of the crime, a shoe print, which looks like it belongs to a woman, is found. A piece of fiber, commonly used in the lobby of hotels, is discovered within the footprint. In addition, a petal of a bush clover is discovered, which isn't from the area around the shrine. Tamako Tachibana (Miki Maya) leads the investigation with just these small clues.
