Director : Tadaaki Horai (All of Them Are Troublesome Girls!)
Nono Samejima, a rickshaw puller in Asakusa, an old neighborhood in Tokyo, visits quaint bathhouses with Kukiko Yuge, Nono’s landlord’s granddaughter who lives in the same apartment building, and Alyssa Libera, a foreign exchange student. A heartwarming―and also body-warming―story that soothes the mind and spirit about these three women who deepen their friendship through their “naked camaraderie.”
Nono, the main character, is played by Nao, one of the most talked-about actresses today who appears in numerous TV series, movies, and commercials. She captured public and media interest with her role as the heroine’s best friend in NHK drama series Half Blue. Kukiko is played by Sayaka Tomaru who has a diverse career as an actress and a glamour model. Alyssa is played by Yu Takahashi, a model and an actress who is in great demand by variety shows. And Chiyako, Nono’s landlord and the owner of the Yuge-so Apartments, is played by Toshie Negishi, an accomplished actress with an expansive filmography of movies and TV series.
Nono Samejima, a rickshaw puller in Asakusa, loves bathing at bathhouses.

At the Yuge-so Apartments, as landlord Chiyako Yuge explains the lease agreement to Nono, the conversation somehow turns to Chiyako’s granddaughter Kukiko, and Nono ends up accepting a part-time job as her dog walker. But when Nono heads to the rendezvous...
