This is the last episode of Season 2.
Encouraged by the photo she took of Cocoa during their camping trip, Chino decides to get photographs of all of her friends. Maya and Megumi recall how they met Chino as she and Cocoa find a way to kill time, and Mocha receives a letter from the girls.
The girls observe the photos Chino took, and Cocoa is surprised by how elegant she looks in one of them. This earns compliments for Chino, who decides that she wants to take more pictures and asks if she can take some of the girls naturally. But in their attempts at doing so the girls get carried away, with Rize unable to stay natural on command, and Cocoa trying to force posed images and consistently tripping and ruining shots.
A bit later they go over some fun pictures she took and do one with Tippy before Rize insists on getting back to work. Chino stops her to ask that she gets a picture of herself, so that she can be included as well, then resumes with some shots of Tippy- with Cocoa trying to get a picture of her, who is getting photographed by Rize, who is getting her own picture taken by Sharo. As this goes on Chiya suddenly appears behind Tippy to reveal she caught all of them. Sharo notices the time and prepares to go, admitting that lately she hasn't been focusing on it properly. They wonder why this is before returning their attention to Chino to ask her what got her in the photography mood. She avoids answering and the girls return to work, with Chiya asking for another cup of coffee before she leaves.
It's then Cocoa happens to find an old paper tucked behind a loose photo frame; a ciste map. An item used to locate treasure, then exchange an item for something you own and re-hide it. Rize comments that she did several of these when she was little, and Chiya recalls doing it once with Sharo too. As Cocoa observes the map she mentions that she would like to try it, and Chino agrees that it would be fine, as long as they invite Maya and Megumi too.
Later, the four girls head outside, and Maya, Megumi, and Chino reveal the small broken hero sword, jewel-like buttons, and ship in a bottle they chose as their treasures. Cocoa compliments the items before revealing the little Tippy she made with some fur shed from Tippy. As they head into town, Chino explains that Rize was unable to join them because she offered to watch the Cafe in their absence. Cocoa promises to do her best to guide them and Megumi brings up the time the trio tried doing this before, back when they first met Chino and began middle school.
Chino was asked to introduce herself to the class but was very quiet. Maya and Megumi were curious about what a Barista was, and they observed Chino from afar before they introduced themselves to her. They bring up the Ciste Map they found and offered her to join them, and they were good friends ever since. Cocoa asks if the Ciste Map was hard, causing some tension before each girl shifts blame to someone else for why they quit: Maya stopped midway, Megumi suggested they play a new game, and Chino was tired. When they try to determine who is at fault Cocoa interrupts, saying they will do fine with her leading them. She reveals the Ciste Map, which reads for the viewer to put three symbols together, somewhere on that specific street. They observe it before Chino determines the answer to be within a hat shop- but when Cocoa guesses Ama Usa An, Chino accuses her of only wanting to stop for food.
The girls go through a shortcut Megumi, Maya, and Chino located. It was a shortcut through the town but back in the past they were unable to go through it, because it was covered in vines and ivy. However, as Megumi and Maya make up a silly story as to how it was cleared, Chino finds herself thinking about her friendship with them. Cocoa tries to make conversation with Chino, saying that Megumi and Maya probably go off track due to wanting to be friends with Chino. This dons on her suddenly and Chino tells Cocoa they have to finish the Ciste Map, and she runs up to the duo and leads them to the park.
There, they recognize signs from the map and compliment Chino when Megumi spots the treasure box. They open it to find it empty; causing Cocoa to attempt to play it cool by saying their precious memories are the treasure they seek. However, her moment is ruined after Chino spots a hidden map on the side of the box and they start looking over it.
Later the girls are shown still following the map and they approach a small hole in a nearby brick wall. It's pretty small so only the trio can barely fit through it, so Cocoa offers to hang onto Tippy for the time being. They continue on and remark on how special this spot is until they find an ornate treasure box before them. They open it to observe many precious items, including a rabbit doll, an hourglass, two coupon, shells, and a badge. Realizing many have come here before, the girls are brought back to reality by Cocoa, but before they go Megumi and Maya stop Chino to ask if Cocoa is the reason why she enjoyed this hunt more than their first. They share a laugh after they claim to be jealous of their bond, only to be reminded of the rules of the ciste map. Megumi and Maya have gotten an idea and share it with Chino.
That evening, Cocoa relaxes in the bath and thinks about how much fun she had, deciding to speak with Chino later. Meanwhile, Chino observes the various pictures she took throughout the day and Cocoa joins her, excitedly asking her a question. Chino remarks that all of the pictures are silly, and she wonders why that happens with Cocoa- but Cocoa fears Chino is angry with her and apologizes for ruining her pictures and laments that she is unable to be the mature, beautiful girl in the picture Chino took of her back during their trip. She wishes to be a big sister she can be proud of, but at the time she isn't really that special; which gives Chino some words to think about before she decks Cocoa with her stuffed rabbit, saying how happy she is for her to have moved there. She insults Cocoa, only for Cocoa to respond with a pillow to Chino's face. As Chino prepares to insult her again, she stops upon seeing her teary expression- worried she hurt her. Cocoa insists she isn't hurt though, but she refuses to explain herself.
As the girls carry on upstairs, Tippy and Takahiro chat.
Suddenly Cocoa happens to notice a letter and is surprised to see that Mocha -her sister- wrote something for Chino. In it, Mocha describes how silly Cocoa looked in some of the pictures, but she requests some natural pictures from her. Cocoa asks why Chino didn't just tell her this, causing Chino to explain that Cocoa wouldn't have been natural for her if she did.
The following morning, Megumi, Maya, and Chino meet up to show the Ciste Map they prepared for the other girls. They split up to deliver them, with Maya using her coupon she found and giving the map to Chiya, while Megumi cutely offering Sharo her map- with Sharo accidentally thinking it's a love confession letter. Chino hands a Ciste Map to Rize and Cocoa, offering to stay behind this time so that they can go to investigate it. She wishes them luck as Cocoa explains not being able to finish the one they did the other day.
Back at home, Mocha receives a letter and calls her mother, revealing it to be from Cocoa and Chino. They sit down to look at the new pictures, commenting on various ones before Mocha shows trouble in determining the mature girl in the photo; just as Cocoa had days prior. She is shocked when their mom explains who it is and they begin wondering if she will come to visit them. They note the silly pictures Cocoa took before reading the letter, in which Cocoa reveals that because Mocha tried to take Chino from her, she won't be writing to her for a month. Mocha alarmingly points out that this wasn't her intention.
Later, the girls reveal their treasures; Rize found a decorated badge, which Maya knew she'd like. Chiya got a ballet shoe keychain that she finds to be really cute, and Megumi explains that it is a charm to make one dance gracefully. Sharo got a tiny, cute little book and opens it to find a paper from Aoyama, which she gracefully accepts before asking Cocoa what she got. Cocoa reveals the weird expression photo she got of someone -expressing shock upon realizing its her- that she will treasure. She turns to find Chino sleeping and listens, hearing her talk. She whispers to Chino to leave everything to her, and Chino responds before awakening, with no idea as to what she said. Suddenly, Rize interrupts to bring up something Sharo did. Sharo claims it was Chiya's fault, and Chiya denies everything as the girls begin to eat some cookies.
