Taeko Nomura (Japanese: 野村たえ子) is the wife of Mitsugu Nomura, living in Sakuragaoka, however she and her husband have not been getting along. Ever since their daughter suddenly left home to live in Tokyo she has not contacted them since, this has put a great strain on their marriage as they both blame each other for her lack of contact. Although she has decided she doesn't want to divorce, she has also stopped doing the housework, so their house is a complete mess. She spends most of her time talking to the various people in Dobuita, but no one seems to be aware of the family's troubles.
