There are three stories, which revolve around Yuki-onna, a yokai found in Japanese folklore.

Garō no Yama (牙狼の山 Wolf Mountain, "On Wolf Mountain")

A young girl named Fubuki befriends a spirit wolf who has saved her from a pack of dogs. Complications ensue between the girl's mother and her newfound friend.

Kōri no Hana (氷の花 Flower of Ice, "Flower of Ice")

A man leaves his lover, Kaya, waiting by an ice-cold lake. He returns years later, believing she will have found someone else and grown old, only to find her unchanged from the day he left her.

Hiyoku no Tori (比翼の鳥 Wings Side-by-side, "Happily Married Couple")

A soldier loses his way on a snowy mountainside while returning home to his fiancée. In his frustration, he shoots down two herons only to discover upon his eventual return home that the herons had been guiding him.
