This is what Suzume no Tojimari is about :
The story follows Suzume, a 17-year-old girl from a quiet town in Kyushu, who meets a young man who is looking for a door. You will find a door in the ruins of a mountain that Suzume will open. Soon more doors will open across Japan, harboring disasters from the other side.
