“The summit at last.”

“We’re finally here.”

“…I’m tired.”

After walking for a while after leaving the rest stop, we finally reached the summit of Mount Inari. I had heard that the summit was 233 meters above sea level, so I expected to see a spectacular view, but to be honest, the view in front of me was not what I expected.

It was more ordinary than I had expected. There was a place along the way where we could see the whole city of Kyoto, and I can say that the view alone was better there.

Reona and Riona seemed to feel the same way and had indescribable expressions on their faces. We took a picture in front of the sign that said “summit,” and then went to the shrine to pray.

“Ryoya, onee chan, look. There is a complimentary fortune.”

“Wow, it’s pretty rare that it’s free.”

“Well, since we’re here, why don’t the three of us draw some fortunes together?”

Reona suggested that we each draw a fortune. Then we began to look at the results.

“Oh, I got a big lucky one.”

“Well, I drew …… a bad luck, then a great luck.”

While Reona was happy to draw a “big lucky” fortune, I was a little confused because I drew a rare fortune that said “bad luck” followed by “big luck”. The story is probably bad at first, but later becomes great luck, but is this really something I should be happy about?

“How was it for you, Riona?”

“I had great luck.”

Riona looked a bit proud when she said so.

“Riona is amazing, it looks like something good is going to happen.”

“Hee, there’s more than ‘big luck,’ isn’t there?”

We talked about it for a while and then went down the mountain, taking as much time as we had when we came.

“Shall we move on to Arashiyama then?”

“Oh, I have a good luck charm I want to buy first.”

“Yes, there is a good luck charm that onee chan and I were talking about buying when we got here.”

Reona and Riona finish saying this and start to head towards the sales area, pulling my hand. Reona and Riona took the amulet called “Meibu Enmusubi Mamori” in their hands.

“I see, it’s a good luck charm for marriage. By the way, what does the “Meibu” on the front mean?”

“Meibu means a fox who serves the god Inari, and also means a wife.”

“W-wife is a bit quick, don’t you think?”

When I heard Riona’s explanation, I couldn’t help but say that, and she opened her mouth with a smirk on her face.

“Considering how you say you’re in a hurry, I wonder if Ryoya-kun is planning to marry us?”

“N-no. Now that’s just a figure of speech. ……”

When I was embarrassed and tried to hide it, Riona looked a little sad this time.

“So you don’t plan on getting married?”

“I-I’m not saying that.”

“Well, even if Ryoya-kun doesn’t like it, I won’t let him get away with it.”

Yes, I know. I bet I can’t run away from Reona and Riona anymore.

After leaving Fushimi Inari, we took the train to Arashiyama.

I knew we were in Arashiyama because of the Togetsu Bridge.

“It’s the symbol of Arashiyama, isn’t it?”

“Yes, and the view is beautiful.”

We got off the train at the station, and the bridge was right next to the station, and the three of us were excitedly walking along it. The bridge is a popular spot for tourists, and it was quite crowded on top of the bridge.


Riona stopped to take a picture of the scenery, but someone bumped into her, and she almost fell down.

“Watch out!?”

I quickly stopped Riona from falling and prevented her from crashing to the ground.

“Are you all right?”

“Yes, thanks to Ryoya, I’m saved.”

Riona’s expression was so cute as she smiled at me saying that.

“Hey, hey, you two, how long are you going to hold each other like that? People are staring at us like we’re crazy.”

“……Ah, I’m sorry.”

“No, it’s okay.”

Apparently Riona and I were hugging each other for longer than I expected. We would have continued to hug each other for a while if Reona hadn’t pointed it out, looking surprised but also a little envious.

“Well then, let’s get back on track and go to the path through the bamboo grove,”

“Yeah, I hear it’s charming and beautiful, so I’m looking forward to it.”

We started walking toward the path through the bamboo grove, looking at the map app on our phones. The shopping street along the way is quite busy.

“I’m in the mood for something sweet, so why don’t we get something to eat?”

“Sure, I’m feeling a little hungry.”

“If so, I’d like a green tea sweet.”

“Well, Kyoto is all about matcha, isn’t it?”

We went to the shopping arcade and bought some green tea ice cream. I took a bite of the ice cream while watching Reona posting pictures on social media.

“Yes, it’s really delicious.”

“I guess this is the home of matcha green tea.”

“It was the right choice.”

The ice cream was so delicious that I finished it right away.

“…… Oh, Ryoya kun, stop for a minute.”

“What is it?”

I was suddenly stopped and when I stopped, Reona brought her face closer to me. And just like that, she kissed me on the cheek.

“W-What are you doing all of a sudden?!”

“What do you mean, you had cream on your cheek, so I just took it off.”

“If you had told me, I would have wiped it off myself.”

“I’m just doing a little service.”

Reona mouthed it as if it was nothing.
