Will warm your heart and calm you down.

A heart-warming drama inspired by a real bakery cafe in Hokkaido that presents a warm depiction of the everyday life of the couple who run it and their customers, filled with the scenery of the four seasons and baking scenes.

Graced with beautiful scenery throughout the four seasons, this shop serves a variety of customers, some of whom are experiencing personal problems. However, after they exit from the shop, they feel only happiness in their mind.
