Haneda Airport, Harajuku, Itsukaichi Highway. These are some of the places in Tokyo where the author spent his youth. A guy working as a security at Haneda Airport who has a mysterious vibe, an assistant at a Harajuku boutique whose fawning praise grates on the ears, and the high school classmate living along the Itsukaichi Highway who steals the author's past with a few scary lies.
