Aoki Madoka, 18, is the only daughter of the president of a tourism company. The wealthy Aoki household is dominated and run by the women, Madoka's mother and grandmother. According to family tradition, they must find a son-in-law for their daughter to marry when she turns eighteen. The son of a business partner, Minagawa Ryuji, is chosen as the son-in-law. The love is one-sided on Ryuji's side.

Fed up with her everyday life, Madoka runs away from home, leaving a postcard saying that she is abroad, travelling the world, and that she wants to find her own partner at her own pace, not someone chosen by the women of the family. In reality... Madoka joins her father's bus tour company, KM Kankou, under the name "Aoyama Haruka", hiding the fact that she is the President's daughter. No one but her father knows her identity. However, Madoka causes quite a stir on her first day, and after repeated failures, the chief instructor now considers her the worst tour guide they have ever had. Meanwhile, a bus driver named Honda Takumaru joins the company and Minagawa Ryuji searches for Madoka's whereabouts...
