Nenbutsuzaka Slope


There is Nenbutsu-zaka at west side of Nasoi-zaka.
Half down a slope, name unknown, there is a wood notice that says Nenbutsu-zaka.
Right turn from the notice, the slope starts. About 10m straight, and 90 degrees left, there is a tunnel of woods.
Enclosed by thick foliage, it seems to lead me to a secret base.
Nenbutsu means reading of Buddhist text. There was a grave yard beside the slope. Farmers passed by it saying nenbutsu.

Boys got calm in a tunnel of thick green

Nasoi Slope exists west side of Shichiyazaka. Nasoi means slant I heard. But nothing is slant along the slope. It may be a name of another slope .
At half up the slope, there is Banzuiin temple. Does it have connection with Banzuiin Chobei? Interesting thing, but not clear. That’s my pending question.
Looking up the slope, it touches directly the sky. No tree nor building disturb the sight. That clouds is “Clouds on the slope”.

Summer clouds, looked up on the slope, with sweat

A few minutes on foot from Musashikoganei station of JR Chuo Line, there is a crossing of Koganeikaidou and Renjyakudori. From the crossing, starts a slope road toward the South-West. It is ShichiyaZaka slope. That means pawnshop slope. Old days, this road was named Shiki kaido , on this road there was a pawnshop.  Merchants might have changed their goods to money.

Common traits of whitened pictures are lack of lower value pixels(as right down graph) and centered saturation(as right up graph). The result of extension of these two distributions is shown below.

Saturation might be a little excessive, but targets in the picture become discriminative for sure.

As itchy of throat didn’t stop, I visited a clinic signed as respiratory specialist. Being said slight athma, I surprised. Sixtieth old I am. One week later, there came data of blood check. Doctor said “To my regret, there’s no allergy”. Regret!!

With medicine from mouth and a small plaster on upper arm, almost eased. But not perfect. Is it really asthma?


At the end of allay, fly after and being flied, spring sparrows

One of them bloomed carelessly, buds of quince tree

Sixtieth birthday

My sixtieth birthday have come. At fiftieth, I felt no anxious about my health. But sixtieth is different. Throat got weak, eyes are not clear, ears lessened the ability. Among others, my vigor weakened. Ah~~.
