Takuboku Ishikawa left his newlywed home (3-chome, Chuo-dori, Morioka City) where he lived for three weeks after marrying his wife, Setsuko, and moved to Kagano Iki-cho, Morioka City. Takuboku lived here for nine months from July 1908 until he returned to Shibumin as a substitute teacher in March of the following year, and these were memorable days in Takuboku's life. It was also here that he published the literary magazine ``Shotenchi,'' and his thoughts at the time are described in the foreword of his long poem ``Eban Magazine.''
