"That morning two years ago, these stairs felt like they represented our history. I wondered where we'd go once we reached the top."
—Sara to Sojiro[src]

Sara Hinata (日向 更 (ひなた さら) Hinata Sara) was the childhood friend of Sojiro Nishikado. She had a crush on Sojiro and planned to share her feelings, but he stood her up. The two lost contact. Sara attended a public high school, where she was a member of a tea ceremony club. There she befriended Yuki Matsuoka, who helped her reunite with Sojiro


Early life

Sara as a child

"I told you that I sometimes pass by here, didn't I? I'll tell you what I'd be thinking about. I'd be remembering our childhood. Like, "we used to run along the top of this wall..." or, about the time we feel asleep in the storehouse."
—Sara talks to Sojiro about their childhood[src]

Sara first met Sojiro Nishikado when they were children. Her mother took lessons at the Nishikado's tea school. She and Sojiro became close friends and Sara affectionately called him "Jiro". They often played around Sojiro's house. One day, they hid in the storeroom and Sara fell asleep. Sojiro's parents were unable to find him and eventually called the police.[3] In another incident, the two of them climbed on the wall surrounding his house and fell down.[4] Sojiro protected Sara by taking most of the impact.[5]

High school

Sara enrolled at Metropolitan High School, a public high school where she was able to wear regular clothing every day. There she joined a tea ceremony club and made a lot of friends.[6]

Saying goodbye

Sara says goodbye to Sojiro

"You've had many "one encounter, one chance" meetings. But for me, my "one encounter, one chance," was waiting for you that morning on the rooftop."
—Sara's letter to Sojiro[src]

During their first year of high school, Sara often Sojiro visited his house unannounced. On one occasion, she interrupted him with a girl, annoying Sojiro. Another day, Sara walked into Sojiro's room. Trying to cheer him up, Sara talked about stuff animals and pretended to be one. Laughing, Sojiro flicked her forehead. Sara nearly fell backward but he caught her in time. She then closed her eyes. Sojiro, however, quickly changed the subject. Sometime later, Sara went to a building's rooftop with two friends. The next morning, she left a voicemail for Sojiro, asking him to meet her there around five in the morning. Sojiro, however, did not show up. Sara waited for him at his house. She began crying and told him "Goodbye." Later, she wrote him a letter explaining how her "one encounter, one chance" was waiting for him at that building.[3]
