Azuki is currently releasing the manga digitally in English, and it describes the manga:

“Even if I can make you smile, I can’t erase the tears you’ve cried.”
In Mametsubu-cho, a little town somewhere in Japan’s ancient capital of Kamakura, the cheerful Ochibi lives a free and easy life. Together with his friends — the dog Nazeni, the mischievous cat Jack, and the ever-hungry pooch Pankui — he welcomes the new discoveries and acquaintances that come with the changing seasons.

The spring brings flowers and greenery; the summer, chances to swim in the cool sea. With autumn come the fiery red maples, and winter brings hot and hearty meals.

These events and shifts of season are drawn with a soft and tender touch, bringing out the warmth in the details of everyday life.

The Diary of Ochibi-san (Ochibi-san) ran in the Monday edition of the Asahi Shimbun newspaper starting August 2008. The manga ended in December 2019. Crunchyroll published the series online. Asahi Shimbun Publishing released 10 compiled book volumes for the manga.

The manga previously inspired a stop-motion animation that was part of Hideaki Anno‘s Japan Animator Expo project with his Studio Khara and the media company Dwango in 2014.
