Speaking of Suzhou, the first thing that comes to mind in Japanese is probably “Kanzanji”. Why? Did it become? There is a line called “Bell will be Kanzanji” in Lee Kalan’s famous song “Suzhou Night Song”. The upper right and lower right are one of the same tourist names in Suzhou, “Toraoka Slope”.
The bottom left two are the river Suzhou, which flows through Suzhou City, Guangdong Province.
