- The story is as follows: Kaoruko is a young lady who has decided on going to a marraige interview. However, she has someone that she cannot forget. When she was little, she met a boy whose name she cannot recall in Chichibu in Saitama. They walked together to Chichibu Shrine, saw the Shibazakura in Hitsujiyama Park, saw the mountain streams of Nagatoro, and saw the sea of clouds at Mitsumine Shrine. All of these became an irreplaceable memory for Kaoruko and left an impression in her heart. "If I go again to Chichibu, I may be able to met him again." Fleeting anticipation and the memories of a day long past cause her to run off to Chichibu.
