Nadeshiko Kagamihara plans on joining The Outdoor Activities Club. Initially planning on turning her away, Chiaki Oogaki agrees to let her join at Aoi Inuyama's suggestion that, if there are more members, they may get a larger club room.
Ena Saitou and Rin Shima watch as the club tries to set up a tent outside. Ena goes out to help them when one of their poles snaps, and then points out Rin through the window. Nadeshiko quickly runs over, thanking her for helping her out in the past, and smacks into the window.
Rin goes camping by herself and thinks about how she acted when Nadeshiko was talking to her. Regretful, she hears Nadeshiko's voice repeatedly calling "Rin-chan," and assumes it's just her mind playing tricks on her to make her feel worse. Opening her eyes, she sees Nadeshiko standing in front of her. Rin hesitantly agrees to let her join her camping excursion and the two make hot pot for dinner with the groceries that Nadeshiko brought.
- Rin is camping at Fumotoppara camp site, to the west of Mount Fuji.
- Rin happened to camp alone this time. Her house is somewhere in Furuseki town (15mins bus from school) and the bike ride to Fumatoppara takes her about 1.5 hrs.
- At Rin's real-life house location is a flood control hut (it's a non private-house area) from the old downtown of Furuseki.
