JManga published the first two volumes of the manga digitally in English before the site ended service in 2013, and it describes the series:
Kazuya Kagami's most treasured possession in the world is the obi left to him by his late mother. The scent of cherry-blossoms infused into it helps him through his day - but he never expected it to save his life, becoming a beautiful kimono-clad girl who calls herself an "artifact spirit." Her name is Kiriha, tsukumogami of the sash, who naturally moves in with him, as he is her "owner." Throw in Chisato, his bespectacled friend, an overprotective older sister who wants to take baths with him, a busty priestess, a seductive sorceress named Kokuyoura, and Kazuya's life has just gotten a lot more...interesting.
Hamada launched the series in Futabasha's "COMIC SEED!" web manga magazine in 2007, and the series then switched to the online "WEB Comic High!" magazine in 2008 when COMIC SEED! ceased publication. The manga then switched again to Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine, where it now runs. Futabasha published the manga's 18th compiled book volume on September 12.
