Now with a new cover! (August, 2016)

Nakashige-cho is a very small town in Western Japan, but there’s always something happening there.

There are two stories from Nakashige-cho in this book.

In story one, Hatsuko is very puzzled. Every day, she puts flowers in front of a small shrine in memory of her daughter, but recently the flowers disappear. Who is taking them and why? Hatsuko asks Chi-obaa to find out. Together they solve the mystery and make sure it won’t happen again.

In story two, a sixty year old secret forces Chi-obaa and her closest friends to travel to Tokyo. They meet some surprising people from the past. Somehow they must find a way to balance old memories and modern life.
