Statue of Ryoma Sakamoto's Boots, Nagasaki

(130+ reviews on the web)
Monument
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.

  • Chojiro, climb up the Hill on the way. Friends family and "Oh this?" and talked about. It was smaller than I thought. The view is good. The weather is good I think PM 2.5 concentrations are low views more fun would be.

  • On a hill is located alone and big boots. Many people put the legs into boots have a rudder, for a photo.

  • Think but somehow stopped near the turtle medium mark ryoma also saw this landscape and irrigation depth. You can wear without shoes on because these boots are great.
