Statue of Ryoma Sakamoto's Boots, Nagasaki

(3.1/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Statue of Ryoma Sakamoto's Boots commemorates the famed and visionary Japanese imperial loyalist, who yearned for a modernized and unified Japan where all people were equal. The memorial's focus on his boots presumably comes from Ryoma's penchant for wearing traditional samurai garb with Western-style shoes, a fitting symbol of his ideals. You'll have to walk a fair distance to reach the statue, so bring plenty of water for the hike. Once reached, the destination makes a good observation point, looking out over the city and toward the mountains beyond.

  • Just a little far away chojiro. You know what so was often wearing boots of ryoma, overlooking the Nagasaki City and I saw ryoma?

  • On the way to chojiro. Pretty uphill, so good vantage point and break in. We promise to put photo.

  • Aiming at the Dragon-horse Street on the walk from メガネ橋, came into the boots of ryoma. It was quite young but serious way. I walked the narrow streets. I would not in a vehicle near and far. Put your feet into the boots take a picture, took a rest while watching the view from the Hill.
