Story
One day, Yamashita Kanta is suddenly laid off by his employer, a game company, due to the recession. His wife Saori, who works for the Labour Standards Supervision Office, gets scary when angry, so he keeps quiet about the truth. Kanta happens to find a seminar for B&Bs in an internet search and attends the event. One thing leads to another and he ends up starting a B&B business which is the trend now. At first, the B&B is faced with successive problems. Then the fact that Kanta was laid off is finally discovered at the worst possible timing and he has to deal with the possibility of divorce. Then Saori’s elder brother Enami Shohei and Kanta’s father Kanjuro, who used to run a traditional Japanese inn, get involved and he struggles to continue the B&B. Will the business perform well?
