Synopsis: Set on a small Okinawa island, this is a story filled with happiness woven between humans and kijimun (spirits). Exhausted from her romance in Tokyo, Yuriko returns to her hometown on Yugafu Island and reunites with the spirit (kijimun) Majiru. Majiru’s duty is to bless mortals and to protect the island and Yuriko. Things start to get hectic as soon as she arrives. Not only does she find herself embroiled in the mayor’s treacherous plans to develop the island, but her ex-boyfriend pursues her home, too. Majiru does his absolute best using a secret love potion.
