五、地形等に関して  5. On the Geographical Features

 土地の人は「シノンデイ」などとも呼んでいる。青梅街道と金子街道との交差点の西方海抜一四五mと一四〇mとの落差のある坂の周辺部は崖になっており、崖崩れを防ぐためか開墾が見合わされ、雑木や笹の生えるままになっていた。The local people call it "Shinon-de'i". The area, west of the intersection of Ome Kaido and Kaneko Kaido, was a sloping road with a 5 m drop (from 145 m to 140 m above sea level). Because of this, the periphery of the slope included cliffs and was withheld from land clearing, possibly to prevent a landslide. So the area was left for various unproductive small trees and bamboo grass to grow.
