The "slow outdoor manga" follows two young women. Rin likes to go camping by herself along the lakes that provide a scenic view of Mt. Fuji. Nadeshiko loves to take cycling trips by herself to places where she can see Mt. Fuji. After they meet, Rin and Nadeshiko take camping trips, eat cup ramen together, and enjoy the scenery.
Afro launched the manga in Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine in 2015, and Houbunsha published the manga's seventh compiled volume on October 11. Yen Press began releasing the manga in English in March 2018.
