After their punishment game backfires, Keiichi, Mion, Rena, Satoko and Rika are forced to parade around the village in embarrassing costumes. Once they reach a fork in the road the club decide to visit the nearby abandoned village of Yagouchi, partly to show Keiichi and Rena around and partly to escape the stares of the villagers! When they arrive in Yagouchi, after hearing about the abandoned quarry over the hill Keiichi and Rena decide it would be fun to investigate.
