Story

The road to becoming a government official was paved by… the ability to see ghosts and yokai, beings invisible to the normal eye?

However where she was assigned was a division of hidden existence.

The government-operated agency is known as the Sixth Special Prevention Office. Its nickname: Ayakashimori.

The division, known by only a select few even within the government, is a special division that deals with matters concerning yokai, or beings that are not human.

Her post is in another world known as Sakuratani. It is a hidden world full of wonder, where she will start living to unify and watch over the yokai.
