    A couple in their 30s live in a small rented cottage in a quiet part of Tokyo; they work at home, freelance copy-editing; they no longer have very much to say to one another. But one day a cat invites itself into their small kitchen. It leaves, but the next day comes again, and then again and again. Soon they are buying treats for the cat and enjoying talks about the animal and all its little ways. Life suddenly seems to have more promise for the husband and wife - the days have more light and color.

    Ein idyllischer Garten außerhalb Tokyos, wie aus der Zeit gefallen. Ein Paar, dem die Freude abhanden gekommen ist. Und eine scheue Katze, die die Freiheit liebt und ihnen die Freude zurückbringt. Takashi Hiraide verzaubert den Hörer mit einem poetischen, berührenden Roman über die Liebe und die Zerbrechlichkeit des Lebens.
