12 Thu L132 何をお願いしたの? What did you pray for?
The shrine we visited is a lucky shrine for education and passing entrance exams.
Students from all over come here to pray for good scores.
Why do so many young people go to the shrine and pray to ancient gods?
Well, it’s because we try our best, but then leave the rest to a higher power.
So Asuka-chan, what do you pray for?
I pray for the ability to pass my high school entrance exams.

What was that, Yukichi?
Oh, I wish I like to be like my father.
I’m sure you will. I prayed for each of you.
