After losing her parents in an accident, college student Shiori Kanazaki had no family left. While cleaning out her parents’ belongings, she finds a photograph of herself as a child with her parents, a grandfatherly old man, and the text “Azakawa Village.”
“I’d like to visit my parents’ hometown. If that old man is there, I’d like to meet and talk to him…” Driven by loneliness and hope, Shiori made her way to the village. But what awaited her there was a mysterious museum, a deep forest behind it, and the museum’s mysterious manager Kotarou Suga, who sternly warned her not to set foot in the forest.
But one night, she runs off into the forest of drizzling rain. Her memories come back to her, and a voice saying “Come, come!” echoes around her…
Alas, that was… the “promised place” where Shiori must never set foot.
