A 20th anniversary riddle-solving event based on manga series “Detective Conan” will be coming to Nagoya’s Oasis 21 from August 7th to 24th.

Previously held this spring in Yokohama, the event, named the “Incident in Conan Exhibit” in English, allows participants to follow one of four paths to solve riddles and mysteries while exploring the world of “Detective Conan”. Choosing between Conan Edogawa, Shinichi Kudo, Kaito Kid, or Heiji Hattori, participants will solve a different set of riddles for each character.

The exhibition hall will be divided into 8 different areas. At the first area, titled “Conan the History”, visitors can have their picture taken with life-sized statues of Conan and Shinichi, while at the next area, based on the Mori Detective Agency, they will search for clues hidden throughout a replica of the agency’s office. The “Conan the Memory” area will display artwork and illustrations from throughout the series’ 20-year history, and the multi-themed “Cool Conan World” area will focus on the battles between Conan and the Black Organization, each character’s likes and loves, and hand-to-hand fight scenes featuring Ran Mori.

At the “File.X” area, visitors can try out some of the gadgets used by Conan in the manga series, and the “Conan x teamLab Camera” area carries the high-tech theme further by providing an advanced photo booth where visitors can digitally insert themselves into the world of “Detective Conan”. The event will also include a gift shop selling limited edition 20th anniversary merchandise, as well as an area with congratulatory wishes from other manga artists published in the same periodical as “Detective Conan”, Weekly Shonen Sunday.

The event is open daily from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM, with tickets only valid for the date specified on the ticket. General admission is 1,500 yen, and admission for children age 3 through middle school age is 900 yen. Ticket details and other information is available on the event’s web site.
