Set within the hospitality division of the Koichi Prefecuture, employees attempt to find new ideas to promote tourism in the region. The hospitality division in Koichi Prefecture can't promote the beautiful nature in the area due to a strict rule by the prefecture government. Popular writer and Koichi area native Yoshikado Kyosuke is appointed as a special envoy for tourism in the area. He then receives a recommendation to meet Kiyoto, a former employee of Koichi Prefecture, who once hatched an unusual idea to promote tourism. Kiyoto pushed forward a project to import pandas into the area, but lost his job because of that project. Meanwhile, hospitality division employees Fumitaka and Taki visits the tourist house which is run by Kiyoto and his daughter. When they arrive, the daughter throws a bucket of water at them, still angry for the way her father was dismissed from his job. From there, a plan for the hospitality division is born.

This movie felt like a promotional movie, which wouldn't be a bad thing if they were subtle about it. A lot of times it felt like watching a documentary, the dialogs aren't impressive and pretty preachy. This movie is pretty slow thats for sure but somehow it didn't feel draggy. It's probably for the side characters, mainly Kiyoto-san's family that managed to spice things up, otherwise the rest is dull.

I like Funakoshi Eiichiro here. He's the only character that felt natural and is playing a cool character ahead of its time. The rest was pretty standard. This movie motivates more to look up Kora Kengo movies :P For that reason I don't feel that I wasted my time watching this movie.

The music.. I didn't notice it AT ALL!

I don't really recommend for any value that I found in the movie, but if you are a fan of any of those actors, it's worth the watch ;)

The worst movie ever. Boring plot, no action, cheap catches in the scenario. I wonder why has Maki agreed to star there.
