Statue of Ryoma Sakamoto's Boots, Nagasaki

3.1
#31 of 179 in Things to do in Nagasaki
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.

    It is located right near turtle medium Hall of Nagasaki City monuments. So, on a pretty terrace. There is public transportation stops nearby, so let's go up slope on its own. It is recommended to go down again, the swagger of chojiro Dragon horse. Let's go from the alley between deep, Temple with a Zen Temple in the temple town. Ryoma aimed at monuments related to ryoma that ryoma willingly wore boots, and the world will be the rudder of a ship. Boots into feet wearing shoes boots are quite large, so it. Many feet into boots, hold the rudder took commemorative photos. Also, unobstructed, so holding the Steering and front views of town in Nagasaki. Dragon horse himself watching from the porch of chojiro town and port, and guess you had dreamed of the world from the harbour. Think good monument, in the sense that you can experience such an atmosphere.
