I would like to thank Jim Wiseman for his helpful comments during our conversations about this article. I would also like to thank the referees for their careful reading of the manuscript and many helpful suggestions. Most of all I would like to thank Ryōkwan Maruyama for the wonderfully beautiful and deep mathematical problem that he posted in the Tsuruoka-Sannōsha shrine more than two centuries ago.
