    • The internationally acclaimed photographer Ooyama Hikaru was taking a series of photos of a beautiful girl, Ishigaki Maumi, against the backdrop of Okinawa’s Yaeyama islands’s scenery. During a photoshoot under a beautiful waterfall on Iriomote Island, all of a sudden, a strong beam of sunlight hit Ooyama from above the waterfall, and he was momentarily blinded. Before he knew it, Maumi had mysteriously disappeared… It has been 4 years since then, and Ooyama continues to search for the girl who disappeared deep in Yaeyama. While going into Yaeyama and searching for Maumi, he was touched by the impressive nature and artistry of Okinawa. At the same time, Okinawa’s beautiful scenery, which has never been depicted by anyone thus far, was captured in pictures. And, once again he caught sight of Maumi’s shadow. Ooyama realises his strong feelings of love for the woman who has grown in his thoughts. Why did she suddenly disappear? Was it a dream, or could it be the river God
