At the end of the 1920s, Tokyo, the Imperial capital of the Japanese Empire, celebrates the spring of the fifth year of the Kowa era. A handsome young man born to a German mother, Senzaki Masato, is an elite graduate of Teito University, but leads a life of self-indulgence without a home, money, or job. One day, when he is about to be evicted from his place of residence, he visits an acquaintance’s salon to look for a job. There he meets a sleeping child-the enigmatic ‘Ono Kahoru’-and Masato finds himself involved in a variety of cases.
