The group sits around a table and eat dinner and seeing the rain Go and Ayumu wonder if they can take a shower in the rain, but Kite tells them its dangerous as he saw nuclear power station in smokes and shows readings on his phone for higher radiation levels.

In the morning, Kite wakes them and says that the building is tilted at 7 degrees and explains its not just the building, but the whole Japanese archipelago is leaning towards the Pacific Ocean. As they prepare to leave, an earthquake occurs and they take the store owners truck and leave.

Due to the road ahead being destroyed, they are forced to take a detour and later stop for the night. The next day, they find a hitchhiker, Daniel, and take him with them, although the store owner was against it as he hates foreigners. That night they reach Shan City, which is surrounded by a fence and has cameras. They are welcomed inside, letting them shower and later are given curry for dinner. Go comment he doesn't like it, as it contains vegetables and he doesn't like them, but Haruo comments its just like his mother's and recalls how she was crushed during the earthquake.

Osamu shows the group around, explaining how they are self-sustaining and that they are welcomed to stay as long as they want. Osamu then shows them tends where they can spend the night. Kite visits the store owner and gives him morphine, realizing its what he wanted. He takes it gladly, but explains he is there for another reason.
