Deep in the mountains somewhere in the Tohoku region, Machi is a middle school student that works as the shrine maiden for a shrine that worships bears. One day, Machi makes a request to her guardian Natsu the bear that she "wants to go to an urban school". Machi is ignorant of the world and is impatient though motivated, so a worrisome Natsu gives her all sorts of trials necessary to survive in an urban area...
Machi Amayadori"I want to go to an urban high school after all!"
A middle school student working as the shrine maiden for Kumade Shrine. Longs for the urban life, but from years of living in the village, she feels her rural life as an inferiority complex. Terribly bad with machines.
Natsu Kumai"There are people who can go to an urban area... and there are people that shouldn't go."
A brown bear that can hold conversations with humans. Can understand writing as well, but has bad handwriting. Grew up together with Machi from a young age. Has detailed knowledge of the newest home appliances.
