Son of the local tofu maker. Speaks bluntly. Yuuji’s childhood friend.
A young Buddhist priest whom everyone loves. A bit air-headed but his heart’s in the right place.
Yuuji isn’t your usual Buddhist priest – he’s young, good-looking, and his natural charm makes him a hit with everyone in the shopping district! Unfortunately for his leagues of adoring admirers, though, he says he’s all but sworn off love, dating, and marriage, and that his life is devoted to the practice of his faith. There’s just one thing he isn’t telling anyone: Yuuji does have someone he loves, but they can never date or marry – his childhood friend, Saburou!
