Ishihara Akiko runs the Ishihara Mortuary—a role she somewhat reluctantly took on after her father died in a traffic accident. Akiko's dream was to become a journalist, so she had initially told him to ask relatives to take over the family company, but with her father's sudden passing, she had no choice but to take it upon herself. Now together with her fiancé Haruhiko, she helps the police solve various murder cases she encounters through her business in Kyoto.
