The narrator meets a matured man with glasses, who has an illustration of an old man wearing suit and a young lady wearing kimono. He then starts to talk about the story of the illustration, which happened around 35 years ago when his older brother was 25 years old. He too, wore glasses, went to Asakusa Twelfth Floor (now Ryouunkaku), and met a lady who he had a crush. The lady turned out to be Oshie, which is a classic 3D art made out of cloth and Japanese traditional paper. The matured man then told the narrator about his imagination on how he would take his brother and the lady (the couple) to wherever, though the lady doesn't age while his brother did. He got embarrassed talking about it and said he would get the illustration a rest. When he got the illustration into the futon, it seemed like the narrator saw the lady move as if she smiled and greeted to him.
