Iwaki City, Fukushima Pref.


Some years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011 hit a city called “Iwaki,” Fukushima Prefecture. Today, the city is well in the process of rebuilding. Now, Suzu and Fumi are 7th graders going to a junior high school in Iwaki. The two girls, one day, kicked off a hula team in their school, on a whim. Yet they soon lost their enthusiasm to dance hula, and the dance team was taking it easy. One day, however, a student from Finland, Mona, joined the team. This rekindled the two Japanese girls’ motivation, and they are now busy winning new teammates and practicing for a hula contest. This is a story of adolescence depicting the girls of Iwaki, a laid back city of hot spring spas, going all-out with hula.
