Shōko Inari (稲荷 翔子 Inari Shōko) is a real estate developer who plans to turn the Amamizukan into a high-rise hotel where she manipulates Shū, spiking his drink with sedatives at a bar and makes him believe they had sex so she can blackmail him into getting in good relations with his father.
Shoko is a bitch and landshark who tricks Shuu Koibuchi into thinking they slept together. After getting hit for pulling a prank on him that made him think she was committing suicide over his rejection, she begins to develop feelings for Shuu.
Shoko is a hard-working and cynical woman. She has a hard-hitting reputation, which she states is why she was assigned to the Amamizu Redevelopment project. She is not opposed to using underhanded methods to succeed in her job, like trading sex for favors or using blackmail. In addition to seduction games and bullying phone calls, Shoko's determination to close deals includes bribery and international travel, as she makes multiple trips out of the country to persuade Chieko's mother into selling Amamizukan.
The only thing she seems not to succeed at is ending her crush on Shuu.
Shoko qualifies as one of the Stylish. Professionally, she dresses business-casual with a touch of sensuality that she amps up when she feels the occasion calls for it.
She has long reddish-brown hair, a slim figure and a mole on her face beside her mouth. Her height is average-to-tall.
