Gentlemanly, elegant and cool Ueno-san is a manager who works at Gotanda Kingdom, a love hotel which rises above Gotanda in downtown Tokyo. It is an environment where it is easy for human nature to be laid bare and he usually hides himself and is discrete for customers’ sake. However, Ueno objectively sees the true feelings of many couples who have difficulty understanding each other and appeals to them by offering sound advice. He rather sadistically teaches them the tricks to succeed in love regardless of gender, through the knowledge he has acquired and when he finishes instructing, he always will present his name card and say, “I’ll be waiting for you at Gotanda Kingdom”. One day, a chaste university student Ichijo Noboru is sleeping at the side of this road. Last night, he caught sight of Nanami, a student whom he likes from the same university, walking together with a man in front of this hotel. Not wanting to believe the relationship between the two of them, Ichijo kept a lookout in front of the hotel all through the night and ended up falling asleep. When he wakes up, the person in front of him is Ueno-san. Ueno-san’s rude words and housekeeper Mita Etsuko’s declaration that she has reported him to the police, gets Ichijo scared and he leaves as if running away in fear. Ichijo goes to school like that. He sees Nanami in different clothes from last night and feels relieved that he mistook her for someone else. Then the weird Ueno-san shows up in front of Ichijo during a lecture at university. He kindly gets materials to a girl sitting in a back row who does not have them and cheerfully has a conversation with a girl who picked up the eraser that he had dropped. Ichijo is envious and impressed by him, but these are all techniques disguised to win over a girl. Ueno-san offers to instruct Ichijo on romance. And so, Ichijo works part-time at Gotanda Kingdom as he learns from Ueno-san.
