出世坂 / Shusse Zaka


Shusse Zaka (Kushiro City) is recognized as a lucky spot because the name translates to successful careers in English. This steep slope with steps is next to a wall which is almost vertical and houses the Hanadokei, or Flower Clock in English. When Kushiro City was established, this slope was called Jigoku Zaka which means the Slope of Hell in English, due to the hardness of climbing up and down. However, after the former Kushiro Koryo High School was built on the area above the slope, it was renamed the Slope to Success, because ambitious students aiming for successful careers took that path.
