The chapter continues with you being introduced to Kajihira himself, the one who owns the construction company.

Go to the Hashiki murder crime scene
Next, head to the crime scene of Hashiki’s murder. Kaito will follow you there.
After reaching, there’ll be a short cutscene.
Go to Queen Rouge
You’ll then need to go to Queen Rouge just nearby. It’s a hostess club.
Enter this club (image below).
During the cutscene, Kaito will show Saori’s photo to the manager of the club, and he’s interested in recruiting her.
Next, you need to bribe Saori into joining the hostess club for a day. After coming out, you’ll need to call someone who may know what dessert Saori likes.
Talk to Tsukomo
Ask Tsukomo for this.
The keyword you’re looking for is “Open”.

Now, head towards Genda law office to bribe Saori.
Speak with Genda

He also wants to avenge Shintani and will support you in your investigation.
After a few cutscenes in convincing Saori, you need to buy her a dress to become a hostess.
Buy a dress
The place that sells dresses for hostess clubs would be Le Marche. It’s south of the map.
There, you’ll pick the outfit for Saori.

Walk to the club

Follow Yagami to the hostess club.
During the cutscene, you should probably choose either “My name is Saori” or “I’m Saori”. The one on the right was the wrong choice
In the next conversation, I chose the left option “Now that’s asking too much” which seemed appropriate.
There’ll be another cutscene where Saori manages to find the hostess who served Hashiki before he died.
Below are the correct answers for the conversation.
After this part is over, you’ll be back to playing as Yagami.

Go to the 3rd floor and you’ll meet this man again. Talk to him and he’ll be able to sell clues to you for 50,000 yen.
If you can’t pay the money, look for Honda and Kasai (leaders of Keihin). Defeat them and bring them back here.
He’ll pay you money and you can use it to pay for the clue.
Conveniently, you’ll get a message from Kim again that the Keihin gang is back.
After getting the message, you’ll see Kasai just nearby on the street.
Defeat him to take him back to the man.
