Umimachi Diary


It's still early...

Something happened?

Nothing serious, but...

We won't be able to

spend morning together, sorry.

I'll pay you back

as soon as I get my check.

Whenever you can.

Good morning.

How's Sachi?

I don't think she slept last night...

You would have been better

just staying out today.

Nah, it'll be smooth sailing.

Smooth sailing?

I'm trying to speak like an adult.

Good luck!

You're late!

Why are you never there

during critical time?

You hear me, right?

I hear you.


You haven't slept enought!?

In Yamagata?

Yeah, he worked in a spa hotel.

A spa hotel?

Like in a bad mystery drama...

"In a little-known spring...

A murder is committed!"

No one was murdered...

That woman....

She's the one who called?

No, I heard she died a while ago.

Chika, don't eat like a pig.

...After that, he remarried

and moved to Yamagata.

Three differents wives?

Not bad...

You're gonna get hypertension,

like grandma.

But you didn't add any salt.

Yes, that's on purpose...

I heard he had a daughter.

So... she's our little sister?

Seems like it.

And the funeral?

I'm not going.

I have the night shift.


You won't attend?

You could go in my place?

...Chika will accompany you.

This feels weird.

I haven't seen dad in 15 years.

He was nice, right?

He was taking us

to the zoo and stuff.

But him and mom also

used to fight a lot.

I can't count how many times

I saw Sachi consolling her...

Yeah, I don't remember any of that.

You were still little.

A little sister...

You always said

you wanted one.

Back when I was a kid!

It's bit late, now...

You don't say...

Wow, what a racket.


We're in the middle of nowhere!

Are you the Kda family?

I am Suzu Asano.

That means...

Thanks for traveling such a distance.

It goes uphill a bit,

but it's a shortcut.

That's a big hill...


Ah, wait up.

Over there.

Over there!

Wow, look at that!


We're here.

Welcome. You must be tired!

It's no problem, really.

Thanks for letting us stay here.

My stepmother will come to

greet you, a bit later.

Thank you!... For picking us up.


-What a mature kid!

-More than us, at least.

Your room is ready.

Ahh! The air con.


-Woh! Look at the view!

-I need beer...

Yoshi, the river's right below!

maybe we can fish.

I want a river of beer...

Yko, you're alright?

Calm down.

He has been very kind to us.

You managed to come?

You finished your shift?

A friend drove me here.

Is she?...

Nice to meet you.

I'm Sachi Kda.

I'm Suzu Asano.

He's your brother?


Well... he's my stepmother's son.

I see.

Excuse us.

Nice to meet you.

I am Sachi Kda.

Ah. You're the eldest daughter?


Nice to meet you.

I am Mrs Kda.

Thank you for taking time out

of your busy schedule to come.

You have done a lot for my father.

He has done so much

for me and the kids!

It's almost time to go out

with the ashes.

If the widow wants to say a few words...

Yko? Can you do it?

I can't...

Can you do it, uncle?

Hmm. It's not easy, you know...

Maybe... Suzu could do it?

Ohh. Yes!

Plus, you're his real daughter.

She can't!

But... Suzu's a really mature kid.

She can do it!

She's really smart.

That's not it.

This is the duty of an adult.

Do you want me to take care of it?

It's only a few words, right?

It is...

I'll do it.

You'll be okay, Yko?

I will.

I am his wife.

Ah, look!

The smoke!

Ah. You're right.

Feels like a grand funeral.

Feels like an old funeral...

Daddy would be happy.

A lot of people came today.

Everyone said he was a kind man.

A kind man but a loser.

He'd vouch for a friend,

just to cash in on the debt.

The sooner he'd show sympathy for a girl,

the sooner he'd try to get in her pants.

It seems dad liked that kind of woman.

That Yko was just like our mother.

Still, she took care of dad

until the end.

We should be grateful.

You're right.

She probably never stayed with dad

at the hospital.

10 minutes, at most.

She'd bring new clothes,

then she was gone.

And yet, she's probably convinced

she was taking care of him.

You're a nurse alright...

Excuse me!

What's the matter?

I have something for you.


Dad was keeping it in his desk.

Ah! Is that you, sis?

That was at the fireworks festival.

In Kamakura.

Ah! I remember that!

Enoshima island!

That's when you got lost.

Everyone was worried sick.

You even took a poop at the station!

Is that true?

Well then...


Do you have time?


What's your favorite place

in this town?

She'll be alright?

I mean... I think she can

take care of herself.

She's the complete opposite of Yko,

that's for sure.

Look at the view!

I came here often,

with dad.


Reminds you of somewhere?

Yeah! With the sea,

it'd be just like Kamakura!


Feels like home...


You're the one who took

care of dad, right?

He must have been very happy.

Thank you. Truly.

Thank you.


You like it here?


I haven't been here for long.


You know...

I was wondering why dad

wanted to live here...

I understand, now.

It's here!

See ya!

Take care!

I will.

You too, sisters.

Suzu... You wanna come

to Kamakura?

The four of us,

living together!

Our house is pretty old,

but it's big.

We all have jobs.

We can raise you.


You don't have to answer now.

Think about it.

See you soon.

I'll come!

Big sis, we're here!
