Synopsis

Yoshino Koharu is a young girl trying to look for a job in Tokyo, but is only met with a series of rejections. However, she has a seemingly lucky break when she receives a job offer to work with the tourism board of the economically struggling Manoyama village as their “Queen”. With no other choice, Yoshino accepts the offer and travels to Manoyama only to find out that she was hired based on a case of mistaken identity and that her contract term is for one year instead of the one day, as she had initially thought. With nowhere else to go, Yoshino reluctantly becomes Queen of Manoyama.

As Yoshino and her ministers prepare for the upcoming Founding Festival, they are approached by Amamiya. He is the producer for a popular documentary series called Moving Mountains, and as a Manoyama native, he is interested in filming an episode focusing on the Manoyama Tourism Board. While filming goes smoothly, Amamiya is troubled at the fact that Yoshino seems too “normal”, which may make it difficult for viewers to be interested in her
