Moving away from your family to start a new life is always a stressful option; you never really know what you're missing until it's no longer in front of you. When Taeko Okajima leaves her life in the city to visit her brother-in-law, she realizes just how much nostalgia has been packed away in the years she's been gone. Questioning her life choices, her time spent away from the city makes her rethink everything.
Slice-of-life series like this always do the heart well; they're so sweet and simple, being something that most people can relate to on some level.

Acknowledging change, remembering family and growing fond of what we have while recognizing what we want are all elements these series play on heavily.
