It is summer, and fourth grade student Koichi stumbles across a dormant kappa (a Japanese mythical water creature) on his way home from school. He names his new friend ‘Coo’.
Despite the warm hospitality from Koichi’s family, Coo finds it difficult to adjust to the Tokyo lifestyle, especially when the media discover his existence. Koichi decides to help Coo by reuniting him with his family, and the two set off on a journey of bonding they will never forget.
