Book Description: Why are family reunions always so c-r-a-z-y?!Riku Fukagawa was found at the age of ten with no memory and no relatives. Despite this, he manages to make a good life for himself. Flash-forward five years later, when he runs into his real family at a flea market. When they whisk him away to their home in another world called Yamato--a world that strongly resembles the Japan of the Edo era--they explain to him that his family, including four of his five brothers and two of his cousins, runs the Hiyokoya Store in the capital of Yamato.Riku doesn't exactly believe his new family. But he does discover he has a magical gift--and some of his family members have a few of their own secrets, too. So even if everyone is very protective of Riku, a boy's gotta do what a boy's gotta do!
