"Fuyu no Sakura" is described as a pure love story with similarities to the popular Korean drama "Winter Sonata" (titled "Fuyu no Sonata" in Japan). Kusanagi plays a gentle glass craftsman in Yamagata who has no experience in love. Imai plays an older housewife with a husband and daughter who goes on a trip alone to Yamagata, hoping to see sakura trees blooming in winter. She gets into an accident, but is saved by Kusanagi. He ends up tending to her, and the two are soon drawn to each other.

Inaba Hiroshi (Kusanagi Tsuyoshi) is a glass craftsman in Yamagata prefecture who has devoted himself to caring for his mother. He has a kind, gentle personality but has never fallen in love even though he has turned 36. 41-year-old Ishikawa Monami (Imai Miki), a full-time housewife, has travelled alone to Yamagata in search of winter cherry blossoms. However, she meets with an accident and loses her memory. She cannot even remember why she is here. Or the fact that she has a husband, Koichi (Takashima Masanobu), and daughter in Tokyo. Hiroshi looks after her and she falls for him, but is disturbed when she regains her memory. It is first love for Hiroshi, who is worried when he learns that she has a short time to live. Meanwhile, Koichi becomes aware of Hiroshi's existence and soon undergoes a sudden change in character.
