We spent time like this until 10:50pm. After cleaning up, we gathered in front of the television. Akihito-san’s program would start at 10:55pm. I sat while hugging my knees as I...

Akihito-san had made arrangements to head to his relative’s house after checking out Tōfuku-ji, which was the subject of his next episode. “You definitely shouldn’t go to Tōfuku-ji by car in autumn.” Holmes-san said in a strong tone of voice as he drove the shop’s jaguar. “……” As I sat in the front...

As usual, I was doing odd jobs in Kura, when Holmes casually asked me that question, as if he meant nothing of it. Stay overnight? What does he mean by that?

As the name suggested, it was a wide, beautiful Japanese-style room from which you could see a waterfall. Three men were waiting for us there. “Nice to meet you.

Naturally, I was thinking of going to Nanzen-ji by car, but Holmes said as follows: “Akihito-san, please head to Nanzen-ji by bus or by train.” He said that in a warning tone. Why did he say that?
