  • Did not know until this time and didn't bother me too much, so this statue in the Imperial Palace outer gardens. I think it would be built in the history of Southern dynasties to the Orthodox. Was struggling to explain the quite this person is a lot of foreign tourists, but also guide.

  • There is a large statue of Kusunoki masashige rode the horse in the corner of the South-East of the Imperial Palace outer gardens. It seems statue of Kusunoki masashige in the Imperial Palace is one of the three largest statue in Tokyo together with Saigo Takamori statue of Ueno Park, the shrine's Omura masujiro. Kusunoki masashige in the late Kamakura period, after the warlord who have taken up arms in the Kamakura shogunate toubaku plan of the Emperor Go-Daigo, and destroyed the Kamakura shogunate. Why Imperial statue of Kusunoki masashige is there or not? That did not look.

  • One of nice tourist spot in Tokyo, next to Imperial Palace. The statue is located nearer to bus parking space where loads of tourist arrived from all over the places. What amaze me is that even though this is an open park space, they give specific spot for those who like to smoke. None of other spots in the park area alowed for smoking. Toilets are clean and there is a nice cafetaria nearby for light snacks and drink.
  • Cross a beautiful moat to the Imperial Palace and I find myself strolling into Kōkyogaien, a large garden where General Kusonoki stands guard, well at least a statue of him does. A samurai warrior in the 14th century, Kusonoki is legendary and is the epitome is loyalty, duty and devotion of the highest degree. Legends are told about him, songs are sung and the Meiji government bestowed him the highest honor and today stands tall on the Imperial ground. I am amazed by the samurai way and who can dismiss the coolness of the samurai sword. I even fielded the idea have my own samurai armour at home. But hopefully nobody ask me to shoot down any nuclear  missiles.
  • Impressive statue of the epitome of the loyal and steadfast Japanese mentality.
  • The statue, in the Outer Garden of the Imperial Palace, is in honour of Kusunoki Masashige a famous Japanese military commander who lived between 1294 and 1336. Recognized as one of the greatest bronze statues of Tokyo. The park is well treed and easily walkable.
  • This statue is really good near imperial palace. This park is also nice tospend time during lunch time.
