Koto no ha no niwa


I didn't know...

Until I entered high school two months ago,

soaked by someone else's umbrella...

The dampness of my uniform's hem,

clinging to someone's suit...

The smell of naphthalene,

The warm body pushed up against my back...

against my face...

The chill breeze of the air conditioner

- Thank you for riding with us.

- Shinjuku... Shinjuku station...

So much closer.

When I was little the sky was closer...

as with it comes the smell of the sky.

That's why I like the rain,

instead of transferring to the subway,

And often, on rainy mornings,

I exit out the station gates.


Chocolate, and... beer?

But, I think I've seen her somewhere...

- Thank you.

- Here.

U-Um... Have we met before?


I'm sorry, my mistake.

It's okay.

Maybe it's fitting...

(A faint clap of thunder)

Narukami no sukoshi toyomite

(Clouded skies)

sashi kumori

(Perhaps rain comes)

ame mo furanu ka?

(If so, will you stay here with me?)

I'm home.

Welcome home.

I bought croquettes.

Great. Dinner will be ready soon.

Thank you.

Where's Ma?

Ran out.

to ourselves.

Lucky us, we get all the croquettes

looking for her.

She left a letter saying not to go

But maybe...

Leave her be.

with her boyfriend.

I'm sure she'll be back after fighting

I'll be leaving next month.

I've picked out a place.

Living alone?

With my girlfriend.

Don't think that's why mom ran out?

You told her yesterday, right?

you know?

I wish she could just let her children go,

dating younger men, damn it.

She's the one who's making the rounds

with my boyfriend!

Oh, yeah? Well then I'm gonna go live

She's got those youthful looks, after all.

her entire life.

That's 'cause she's never worked hard

You're the one who's been piling on the years.

All done.

You do the dishes. I've aged enough.

Won't you be glad to have more space?

'suppose so.

Help me move, 'kay?


Hey, have you heard of this?

What is this, a haiku?

It's a tanka.

As if.

Ask Ma when she gets back.

On sunny mornings, I transfer to the subway and

"This is not what I should be doing now."

But I think to myself





No school today?

And your office... Is it closed today?

I'm skipping work again...

And drinking beer in the park in the morning.

Drinking beer alone isn't good for

You need to eat something with it.

You know a lot for a high school kid.

It's not me. My mom's the drinker.

I've got snack food.

Want some?

"This woman's a freak," didn't you?

You just thought to yourself

No, I...

We've all got our little quirks.

lt's okay. We're human, after all.



Okay, it's about time for me to go.

Heading to school now?

on rainy mornings.

I've decided to only skip school

Then, maybe we'll see each other again.

Perhaps, when it's raining.

It was the first day of Kanto's rainy season.

About Tuition

A shoemaker?

I know it seems out of touch,

but I enjoy creating designs and making shoes.

Of course, I'm still terrible at it.

Of course...

I want to make it my career... if I can.

But despite it all,

I've never told anyone this before.

Do you have any idea how late you are?

You know why I've called you here, right?


Evenings, before I went to sleep...

Mornings, in the moment I woke up...

I realized I was praying for rain.
