The 15-year-old "I" leaves the house of Tokyo living with his father.

I swear to my heart that I will be led by a crow that can be said to be my alter ego "Become the toughest 15 in the world."

Name is Tamura Kafuka. I decided to give it so.

In a long-distance bus that aims at Shikoku and Takamatsu, a young beautician Sakura becomes a friend of travel.

Kafka had a target place. It is the Komura Memorial Library which refurbished the mansion of the former house.

So Kafka will meet Oshima who is the librarian and Saeki who is the relatives of the head.

Meanwhile, Mr. Nakata living in Nakano-ku, Tokyo is a mysterious old man who can talk with a cat.

It seems that my shadow has gone by half since I came across an accident during wartime.

A man named Johnny Walker appeared in front of Mr. Nakata looking for a lost cat in the neighborhood.

The man will bring out a deal with Nakata.

And Nakata goes to Shikoku to be guided by something.

Truck driver Hoshino could not keep such Nakata san, he decided to ride to Takamatsu.

Apparently Nakata seems to be looking for "stone at the entrance".

Kernel · Sunders suddenly appeared before Hoshino seems to be all looking forward.

And Kafka knows Saeki's past with regard to the song "Shore of Kafka".

People who should not meet, people who could not meet each other, were tying one point.

I leave the house I spent with my father on my 15th birthday. And at the Komura Library who lived in Shikoku, Oshima served as a librarian, and women (Saeki) who seemed to be a mother who left him as a child when he was young will meet and face the "curse" put on by his father . Meanwhile, Mr. Nakata, a strange old man who can talk with a cat who lives in Tokyo, caught the search for a lost cat in the neighborhood, and he will head for Shikoku on a long-distance truck that Hoshino drives. Each story is synchronized gradually ....
