Izumiko was raised in Tamakura Shrine on Mount Tamakura, but moved to Tokyo to enroll in Hojo High School together with Sagara Miyuki, whom she grew up with. Izumiko is destined to serve as the vessel for goddess Himegami, but she does not get along with Miyuki, a descendant of the Yamabushi family that is responsible for protecting Himegami. In spite of their dislike for each other, the duo gets involved in a series of mysterious incidents at school.
