“Because there was no other cat doll who seems to have answered their prayers for rain.”
The entire village was dancing as they walked to the temple.
Children enjoyed looking at Doraemon! ! Immediately after this ritual, villagers in the village rejoiced as clouds finally appeared in the sky. After a very long time, it finally started to rain!
After the ceremony Doraemon seems to have been enshrined as a guardian angel in the temple of the temple!
