Story
The eldest daughter of the distinguished head family of the famous Tsukishima style of flower arrangement, 29-year-old Tsukishima Momo has everything – beauty, talent, career and wealth. She is engaged to Yoshiike Takuma, the man she deeply loves. However, she discovers her fiance has been two-timing her and cancels their marriage on the day of the wedding. This big blow shakes her confidence and she cannot recover from it. One day, the bicycle which Momo had been riding is smashed up. She strays into a bicycle shop in a small shopping street and asks its owner Kazama Naoto to repair it. Naoto is not irritated by Momo’s haughty, free-spirited attitude and cheerfully takes the bicycle into his care. At that moment, Naoto’s mother, whom he had been giving care to for a long time, passes away. The concerned people of the shopping street urge an arranged married. Naoto has never had a girlfriend. When Momo visits Naoto’s shop again, he is being introduced to a prospective marriage partner. Momo learns that he is called “Pooh-san” and loved by everyone in the shopping street because of his mysterious charm. She is initially bewildered by the people of the traditional working class neighbourhood who are completely different from the world she was born into. As the owner of a bicycle shop, Naoto is an ordinary man who has nothing, and Momo is a woman out of his league. In spite of this, the unthinkable happens – two of them fall in love.
