When I walked in front of a small Buddhist temple, I found three young monks in the precinct. These shaven-headed monks wore a robe called Kasaya and sat together. They were lazy and relax there. They seemed to be getting downtime together.

Buddhism is a major religion in Myanmar. Different from Japan, Theravada Buddhism is mainstream here. And I saw many boys and girls who entered the priesthood during staying.
