Megumi talked about their difference in hobbies and I mentioned about some of ...
... I usually take a independent tour, but I have to admit that package tours are sometimes convenient.) The temple was designated as the first temple of the Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage, but I was not so interested in the pilgrimage itself. I am officially a Buddhist, but I am not a devoted one.
