Wasao. A big Akita Inu dog, covered in long white fur like his ancestors, is looking out from inside a freight train which left from Tokyo. Although exhausted and his legs feeling as heavy as lead, the dog continues on his journey. Ajigasawa in Aomori Prefecture with the Shirakami Mountain Range in its background. The Akita Inu dog appears before Setsuko, a big-time animal lover, who is feeding six other dogs. The dog does not touch the food offered to him, but instead fixes his gaze on a boy.

The boy, Akira, who also loves animals, is always helping Setsuko take care of the animals. He and his older sister are also taking care of their mother who was in an accident and is now staying at a hospital. The town where sumo wresting and triathlon has been popular is loaded with interesting characters - the three elderly customers of Setsuko's store, three junior high school students, her husband and his buddies, as well as other locals.
