Deji Meets Girl Synopsis
The wonderful story is set in motion one summer when Maise Higa, an apathetic first-year high school girl who works part-time at the reception of her family’s hotel in Okinawa, meets an “Ichirou Suzuki”, a mysterious young man who has Arrived alone from Tokyo as a hotel guest. Since Suzuki’s arrival, “dëji” things have happened around Maise, such as fish swimming across the room or a gigantic banyan tree that pierces the roof of the hotel. (“Dëji” is an Okinawan word meaning “totally” or “very”).
