Summary
"Seishuu Handa, a handsome young calligrapher, uproots himself and moves to an island on the westernmost edge of Japan. "Sensei," as he comes to be known, is a city boy through and through and has never experienced rural life until now. And by the looks of it, he has much to learn! Luckily (?), he has a willing teacher in Naru, the energetic expert islander, to help show him the ropes. But can Sensei keep up with the plucky first-grader, or will he get schooled?! Settle in for a heartfelt island comedy about a gruff on the outside, soft on the inside urbanite teacher and his new, unfailingly kind island neighbors!" -- Unedited summary from the book
