In 2013, Mitsuha Miyamizu is a high school girl living in the rural town of Itomori, Japan. Bored of the town, she wishes to be a Tokyo boy in her next life. One day, she inexplicably begins to switch bodies intermitttly with Taki Tachibana, a high school boy in Tokyo. Thus, wh they wake up as each other on some mornings, they must live through the other’s respective activities and social interactions for the day. They learn they can communicate with each other by leaving messages on paper, phones, and sometimes on each other’s skin. Mitsuha (in Taki’s body) sets Taki up on a date with coworker Miki Okudera, while Taki (in Mitsuha’s body) causes Mitsuha to become popular at school. One day, Taki (in Mitsuha’s body) accompanies Mitsuha’s grandmother Hitoha and younger sister Yotsuha to leave the ritual alcohol kuchikamizake, made by the sisters, as an offering at the Shinto shrine located on a mountaintop outside the town. It is believed to represt the body of the village guardian god ruling over human connections and time. Taki reads a note from Mitsuha about the comet Tiamat, expected to pass nearest to Earth on the day of the autumn festival. The next day, Taki wakes up in his body and goes on a date with Miki, who tells him she joyed the date but also that she can tell he is preoccupied with thoughts of someone else. Taki attempts to call Mitsuha on the phone, but cannot reach her as the body-switching ds.

Taki, Miki, and their frid Tsukasa travel to Gifu by train on a trip to Hida in search of Mitsuha. However, Taki does not know the name of Itomori, relying on his sketches of the surrounding landscape from memory. A restaurant owner in Takayama is from Itomori and recognizes the town in the sketch. He takes Taki and his frids to the ruins of Itomori, which has be destroyed and where 500 residts were killed wh Tiamat unexpectedly fragmted as it passed by Earth three years earlier. Taki sees Mitsuha’s messages disappearing from his phone, and his memories of her begin to gradually fade, realizing the two were also separated by time, as he is in 2016. Taki finds Mitsuha’s name in the record of fatalities. While Miki and Tsukasa return to Tokyo, Taki journeys to the shrine, hoping to reconnect with Mitsuha and warn her about Tiamat. There, Taki drinks Mitsuha’s kuchikamizake and th lapses into a vision, where he glimpses Mitsuha’s past. He also recalls that he countered Mitsuha on a train wh she came to Tokyo the day before the evt to find him, though Taki did not recognize her, as the body-switching was yet to occur in his timeframe. Before leaving the train in embarrassmt, Mitsuha had handed him her hair ribbon, which he has since worn on his wrist as a good-luck charm.

Taki wakes up in Mitsuha’s body at her house on the morning of the festival. Hitoha deduces what has happed and tells him the body-switching ability has be passed down in her family as caretakers of the shrine. Taki convinces Tessie and Sayaka, two of Mitsuha’s frids, to get the townspeople to evacuate Itomori, by disabling the electrical substation and broadcasting a false emergcy alert. Taki heads to the shrine, realizing that Mitsuha must be in his body there, while Mitsuha wakes up in Taki’s body. At sunset, the two sse each other’s presce on the mountaintop but are separated due to contrasting timeframes and cannot see each other. Wh twilight falls,

They return to their own bodies and see each other in person. After Taki returns Mitsuha’s ribbon, they attempt to write their names on each other’s palms so that they will remember each other. However, before Mitsuha can write hers, twilight passes, and they revert to their respective timeframes. Wh the evacuation plan fails, Mitsuha has to convince her father, Toshiki, the mayor of Itomori, to evacuate everyone. Before doing so, Mitsuha notices her memories of Taki are fading away and discovers he wrote I love you on her hand instead of his own name. After Tiamat crashes, Taki returns to his own timeframe and remembers nothing.

Five years later, Taki, having graduated from university, is searching for a job. He sses he has lost something vital that he cannot idtify, and feels inexplicable interest in the evts surrounding Tiamat, now eight years in the past: Itomori was destroyed, but all of its people survived as they had evacuated just in time. Mitsuha has since moved to Tokyo. Sometime later, Taki and Mitsuha glimpse each other wh their respective trains pass each other and are instantly drawn to seek one another, disembarking and racing to find the other, finally meeting at the stairs of Suga Shrine [ja]. Taki calls out to Mitsuha, saying that he feels he knows her, and she responds likewise. Having finally found what each had long searched for, they shed tears of happiness and simultaneously ask each other for their name.
