Many statues of Jizo were lined up in some lines in a corner of the precinct. Although the summer had come to this city, all of them wore a knit cap. I worried whether they were breathless in the heat. Yet my uneasiness proved unfounded. They seemed to be completely indifferent to the hotness.

A second look confirmed that every knit cap was different from each other. The lockstep mentality might be ill-loved in their world.
