Hello everyone, today when I learn about the word 巡る（めぐる）wanikani says that it is an intransitive verb, as well as jisho.org does. However, why does it use the particle を as in the wanikani example (and other examples in jisho too) 「今日は五つのお寺を巡る予定です。」(we’ve arranged to go around to five temples today). Thank you so much for taking your time and answer this!!
Movement verbs use を to indicate the route. For example:
公園を歩く = walk through the park
公園に歩く = walk to the park
This usage of を isn’t marking a direct object, so the verb isn’t transitive.
I am today years old when I found this out!! thank you very much!!
I understood, thank you very much!!
