One day, Doraemon and Nobita come across a mysterious seed. “Maybe it’s a new species of plant!” The two plant the seed right away. It grows into a large tree right before their eyes, but at the same time a storm suddenly rolls in, and Nobita and friends are taken in by the sky and blown away somewhere…
When they came to, Nobita and friends were at the foot of a strange, large tree. Nobita and friends, who lost their secret gadgets in the storm and are unable to return to their world, are at a loss as to what to do.
It was then that they ran into a kind-hearted boy named Launch, who tells them that the unknown town they are in is called “Season Town.”
At Launch’s suggestion, Nobita and friends decide to live in Season Town while lending a hand to its residents until they figure out a way to return to their world.
Shizuka-chan helps out at the hospital, Suneo at the restaurant, Gian at the carpenter, Doraemon as the mayor’s assistant, and Nobita is tasked with tending to Launch’s ruined ranch.
With the help of Doraemon and friends, as well as the residents of the town, Nobita must bring growth to a ruined ranch…
