“Okuribito may very well be considered the school nurse for Tamabito, don’t you think?”
Kazami Sora has been traveling with Shirobana, a girl who wears a straw hat around her neck and regularly blows soap bubbles. They are on a journey to send off Tamabito.
A Tamabito is more commonly referred to as a ghost, and people like Sora who send them off to the afterlife are called an Okuribito by some folks.
Sora had a purpose.
It is to find his missing sister, who has passed away and become a Tamabito.
He wanted to happily send off his beloved sister, who had raised him as a parental figure, with his own two hands.
Then, this spring.
While in the middle of their journey, Sora and Shirobana stopped by Saika Town.
It is a peaceful countryside known for its dandelion fields and natural hot springs.
They were told by an acquaintance that many Tamabito are gathering in this town.
And Sora’s sister may be one of them.
While staying at a hot spring inn, Sora makes use of his Okuribito expertise as the health teacher of Saika Girls’ School, where the headmistress is his acquaintance, in order to earn for the expenses of their stay.
All the while interacting with the female students as the school nurse.
All the while attentively listening to their concerns as a part of counseling.
Together with his partner, Shirobana, they solved various incidents in the school.
Dandelion symbolizes sincere love.
But also that of separation…
