Rokujouma no Shinryakusha Volume 12

Everyone's Weekend

Friday, April 23

The Higashihongan family has been protecting the Higashihongan shrine as the head priests for many generations. With a long lasting history, the branch shrine that is the Higashihongan shrine has existed for over 500 years. And the main shrine, the Hongan shrine, has existed for longer than there exists records of it.

“I am sorry for calling for you, Yurika-chan”

As proof of this, a resident of this mansion entered the guest room with a smile.

Her name was Higashihongan Kanae. She was the wife of the current head of the family, Higashihongan Soutarou, and the mother of Yurika's friend, Sanae.
