At night, she obtains information from regular customers at the small restaurant which her grandmother Ume (Kusabue Mitsuko), a former police woman, runs. Once a case occurs, Sakura will hide her identity and go undercover. She is actually a special investigator under the orders of “Iron Lady” Igarashi Kyoko (Takashima Reiko), the chief of the police precinct. Sakura partners the hot-blooded detective Takeuchi Masato (Sato Ryuta) whom she frequently encounters at investigation scenes, and unlocks the mysteries of the cases.
