I'm looking for any steepish hills between OizumiGakuen to Yamate dori/ Down as far as the 20 into shinjuku. Anywhere in that area...

I want to add a few repeats into my morning commute. htey can be short but more than 5% would be desirable..

If you know of anywhere send me the link!!:D

Yeah, I could but I just thought there might be some hidden gems out there that people knew about that I could go up and down a few times on my way to work.

You know, it's always nice to try something new:D

have you seen this route?

there might be something near your commute route in there. judging from how badly i got my kicked by the climbs on my last ride out in the mountains i should probably find a good place to do some repeats myself. too much like work though.
The hill I just posted is on that route. They even have a photo of it, it's one of the ones with concrete doughnuts.
