Tired of her rural home, recent college graduate Yoshino Koharu is desperate to lead a more exciting life in Tokyo. After a fruitless job hunt, she finally receives a part-time offer as queen of the bizarre "Kingdom of Chupakabura," a rundown mini-attraction in the small agricultural town of Manoyama. However, Yoshino discovers upon her arrival in Manoyama that she was mistaken for a celebrity and the job offer was a mistake. Left with no other options, Yoshino reluctantly agrees to take on the role and aid the Board of Tourism in their efforts to revitalize Manoyama. Determined to bring excitement to the dying town with the help of local residents, the queen enacts a series of projects to highlight the beauty and charm of Manoyama's culture. Sakura Quest delves into the story of a tight-knit community that is struggling to balance change while also maintaining the rich traditions and bonds which define their identity.

Started off strong. Had a few hitches in the middle. Ended strong. A nice show about finding one’s purpose and sense of belonging.
Great heart and that kind of comedy that makes you smirk. Just a fun trip to small-town Japan.
I tried watching the grass on my Chia pet grow, but it was just too exciting. This is much closer to my speed.
This show is criminally underrated. A sweet tale about finding your place in the world.
This series makes me want to see small town Japan even more. It seems so much better than the small town America that I see every day.
Prime minister Abe’s newest propaganda to make people from the city move to the boonies to increase the country’s birthrate using cute girls
The only certainties are death, taxes and the Queen is going to screw the pooch.
