The Hie Jinja Shrine in Tokyo sits atop a small hill. You have to climb a long flight of stairways to get to the main shrine from Sotobori-dori Street. For the elderly, the stairs can be a bit daunting. Therefore, there is an escalator next to the approaching stairs.

I stopped in the middle of the approaching stairs and looked at the escalator. In the meantime, I saw a man climbing easily. Unlike me, he was using an escalator instead of the stairs. On the other side of him, I could see the buildings of Akasaka.
