  • It is a bronze statue of Kusunoki masashige in the Imperial Palace outer gardens. After from the warlord's name under the Emperor Go-Daigo pierced loyalty until the end why here or say that the symbol of the loyal subjects like do House another child copper mine Temple is thought to commemorate 200 years, From Koun Takamura spent 10 years, was completed and commissioned into the Tokyo Fine Arts school is a thing. Wearing a Cowgirl with a lively sense of Kusunoki masashige Park is seen in the large and powerful. A little away from the moat is a must-see.

  • Kusunoki masashige statue in front of the Imperial Palace. I wonder and wonder why, in front of the Imperial Palace. Starts the power struggle between the Emperor and Ashikaga takauji, Emperor side with Kusunoki masashige, was a confidant of the Emperor until the end. It was located in front of Imperial Palace. A close look at big picture is marked and lifelike sense of dynamism is represented, is a great statue.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Stopped by on the way to the train station from the Imperial Palace. The statue was quite nicely made but it would have been nice to have a little information about who Kusunoki Masashige was. It is located in the park across the street from the palace grounds with sign posts to it.
