Plot Summary: While packing for a move, elementary school student Ryuhei finds his father's old school notebook detailing a search for a treasure in Tokyo's vast network of underground passages.

What they discover instead is an entire underground community composed of assorted eccentrics, including a senile old soldier still performing a World War II–era mission.
