While the perfect vacation for most girls her age may be an extravagant vacation with loved ones, Rin Shima's ideal way to go camping alone at the base of Mount Fuji. From setting up her tent to collecting firewood, she has always done everything herself and has no plans to leave her lonely little world.

What begins as one of Rin's usual camping sessions, however, ends somewhat as a surprise reunion for two when the lost Nadeshiko Kagamihara is forced to seek refuge at her camp. Originally with the intention of seeing the scenic view of Mount Fuji for herself, Nadeshiko's plans are interrupted when she is able to fall asleep in the middle of her destination. Alone and with no other option, she seeks the help of the only person around. Despite their hasty introduction, 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 considered whether they could go camping together.
