Photographer's Note

This is a slope named "gongen-zaka" which exists on the way from Nezu shrine to the agricultural department, the University of Tokyo. Since it is the new slope built with from as Hongo street toward the Nezu valley at the Edo period, it is also called "new slope". Many slopes are located in Bunkyo wards in Tokyo. And, it appears also to a literary work well.
This slope was also called "S slope" after "Ōgai Mori(18621922)" of a great writer and the doctor of Meiji Era wrote in the sentence of a novel "Youth" that it is crooked as the character of S for this hill roughly. Although I walk and go from "Toudai-mae station" of a subway to Nezu shrine every year at the time of the azalea festival of Nezu shrine, it is a way which also have temples and a church on the way and is palatable.
