While the perfect getaway for most girls her age might be an extravagant vacation with loved ones, Rin Shima's ideal way is to camp alone at the base of Mount Fuji. From pitching her tent to collecting firewood, she has always done everything herself and has no plans to leave her lonely little world. However, what starts out as one of Rin's usual camping sessions somehow ends up as a surprise reunion for two when the lost Nadeshiko Kagamihara is forced to take refuge in her camp. Originally with the intention of seeing the picturesque view of Mount Fuji for herself, Nadeshiko's plans are interrupted when she ends up falling asleep in the middle of her fate. Alone and with no other option, she seeks the help of the only close person. Despite their hasty introductions, the two girls enjoy the cold night together, eating ramen and chatting while the campfire keeps them warm. And even after Nadeshiko's sister finally picked her up later that night, both girls silently pondered the possibility of going on another camping trip together.
