Statue of Ryoma Sakamoto's Boots, Nagasaki

3.1
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.

  • If you climb the narrow alley of Ryoma Street and go to Kameyama Shachu Memorial Hall, you will find a statue of Ryoma's boots in just around the corner. The photograph of the famous Sakamoto Ryoma is a kimono and a boots figure, but it seems to have been made after it. Because the foot is made to enter the boots, it seems that there are a lot of people who take a commemorative photograph like this. Since it is located on a hill where you can see the city of Nagasaki, including the harbor, Ryoma is a place where you can think of how to cultivate the world view.

  • I walked from Futo Park, but I walked quite a bit. It was hot, too, so I rehydrated at the vending machine on the way. But the view was good.

  • It is a Western symbol of Ryoma called by the citizens' group "Kameyama-sha Nakaba-no-kai" to commemorate the 130th anniversary of Kameyama-sha's founding on October 28, 1995. Because you can actually put your foot in the boots, it will shine insta. The city of Nagasaki is also a great spot for a night view of 10 million dollars, looking down below. If you are a Ryoma fan, it is a must-see. Please visit by all means.
