To begin with she doesn't know left from right but under the guidance of Mayor Tortimer, the angry (but correct) Mr. Resetti and the wandering musician K.K. Slider among others, she is eventually accepted as a member of the village. Along the way she meets Margie, who dreams of being a designer, and the straight-talking Rosie, The Girl who Likes to Become a Fashoner, Whitney the Woman who's in love with Apollo, Soon and the four of them become good friends.


One spring evening Ai finds a bottle on the beach. She picks it up, opens it and finds a mysterious message written inside. “Plant a Conifer and on the night of the Snow Festival something miraculous will happen”


Time passes and soon it's winter. The Snow Festival. This year it will be one very special day and send an uproar throughout the village. Ai, following the instructions in that mysterious message, has planted a Conifer. What kind of miracle will happen on the night of the Snow Festival...?
