On the island of Hatsune, cherry blossoms remain in bloom all year round. While there are those who study these mysterious cherry blossoms, most people lead normal, everyday lives. Even though these cherry blossoms are forever blooming, their lives are still the same.

—Guided by the scent of those cherry blossoms, a girl returns to the island.—

In the middle of such a normal world lies Kazami Academy. At this school there is a young boy who is far from ordinary, yet far from extraordinary. He possesses two mysterious powers: the power to produce Japanese sweets out of nowhere and the power to see other people's dreams.

A school idol who loves Japanese sweets, a nagging, yet spoiled little sister, an absent-minded upper-classman, a loud childhood friend who always appears in his dreams, and an energetic junior who is nicknamed "Puppy dog" all attend Kazami Academy with him.

As graduation approaches, they finally meet, and their heartwarming love story begins.
