To break through the problem and help the struggling Nozomu, the shop’s owner Amami brings a Shiba Inu to be their shop dog. The Shiba Inu, Nana, has the ability to identify delicious coffee by smell!

Nozomu meets new characters and faces hard struggles. And eventually, he makes an incredible move that nobody would ever expect!

Set against famous sightseeing spots in Hawaii, a story of hard work unfolds in Waikiki!
