It's that, in the background. The river is behind the camera.

For some reason, many Anime cities feature a river with a gently sloped artificial riverbank featuring a sidewalk either at the top or bottom (or both) and stairs to descend to the water's edge. There's probably a bridge, too. Suitable for Lying on a Hillside, Scenery Porn, Watching the Sunset, and That Cloud Looks Like.
