Plot Summary: Takao Akizuki often skips morning classes on rainy days to sketch shoe designs in a Tokyo park. One day, he finds an older woman drinking beer in his favorite secluded spot. They rarely speak with each other during this brief encounter, but he feels like he’s met her before. Shortly before she leaves, she bids farewell with a poem that stimulates a sense of wonder in Takao. As he ponders the words, he hopes to meet the woman again in the garden to discover their true meaning before the end of the rainy season.
