Rin Shima left her hometown of Yamanashi, got a job at a small publishing company in Nagoya, and lived alone. One weekend, when she was planning a tour, her high school friend Chiaki Ogaki suddenly sent a message. “I’m in Nagoya now”.
Chiaki, who works for the Tourism Promotion Organization in Yamanashi, was in charge of the redevelopment plan for the facility that was closed a few years ago.
“If it’s such a large site, we can use it as a campsite.” Chiaki was moved from such a casual word from Rin.
