Comments: This 45 minute cartoon about a troubled young school teacher and a troubled younger student who wants to be a shoemaker is kind of sexy, especially if you have a foot fetish. I don't, just sayin'.

Summary: Takao, who is training to become a shoemaker, skipped school and is sketching shoes in a Japanese-style garden. He meets a mysterious woman, Yukino, who is older than him. Then, without arranging the times, the two start to see each other again and again, but only on rainy days.
