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.

  • There is a vending machine to buy a drink next to this place! :) it wasn't that hard to find using a map and phone. You can't see the harbour though.  more »
  • Sakamoto ryoma's big boots to celebrate the award. Sakamoto ryoma (small) Museum on the way back. If you don't like hiking shines. It's hard to go up a little bit.

  • Indeed to some of the reasons are eliminated from history textbooks found on the NHK special the other day. However, what you don't want to choose elite hold a candle to the Sakamoto ryoma. Written yugao circled to Kyoto from Nagasaki and the new Government platform measures 8 000 exciting curiosity than constitutional revision.
