Each place-name has meaning.
Well then, when looking at a map, there are such place names. For example, this is called “Tsumetamizu.” Water springs out from here, being called “Wind blowing (Kazefuki).” Then, here is a place called “Tosaka.” All have meanings. I think it will be interesting if we look up these Chinese characters (kanji). The talcum here was the place with a downward slope where it was easy to slip if you were not careful. Therefore this is called a talcum (slipping stone). Then, there is a kagamiishi (mirror stone) near here. Over there along this road, entering into an erstwhile way around Kinkakuji, a rock accidentally protrudes with a foamed surface. A cow carriage passes by, and she becomes violent when her own face is reflected in the mirror. It’s this road here. There are that many places. Kyoto overall has such significance.
