Renchō arrived at the hometown.

He feels nostalgic for the smell of the tide.

Renchō walk uphill.

He watched that there was the Seichōji Temple uphill.

There were Buddhist priests of the child. They probably got tired of cleaning the front gate. This is because they forced the leaf which they collected on each other.

Renchō called out to them smilingly.

“Look here. You must not quarrel.”

Boys suspected a priest to call out to intimately, but noticed it before long.

“Are you perhaps Mr. Renchō?”

When Renchō nods, boys run in a hurry to the main hall of the temple.

He entered the precincts.

His parents, Dōzenbō, Jōkenbō, Gijōbō, Ō’ama met him.

Renchō said hello smilingly.

"I returned now."

Umegiku of his mother is filled with tears, Dōzenbō gets upset. Ō’ama was smiling and Jōkenbō and Gijōbō of the senior fellow disciple met Renchō with the shined face. And boys peeped out in the shadow of adults with fascination.


A banquet began at the night.

A boy hits the hand drum.

The people of the temple sat down with Renchō as the best seat. Everybody talked with a smile.

Renchō was occasionally tense among these people. Is he tense ahead of the tomorrow's sermon?


The next morning. The precincts were still dark.

Dōzenbō looked in the Renchō’s room so that he tempts Renchō for a religious service, but there is not him.

He asked a boy priest.

“Where is Renchō?”

"Yes, towards Kasaga Forest."

There was halfway up a mountain which looks around the Pacific.

Kasaga Forest was going to greet morning, but it is still dark.

There was the very large sea in front.

The sky has begun to shine.

Renchō stared at the dim light of the horizon.

The sun of April 28, 1253 rose.

Renchō chanted it as decided.

“Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.”
