  • Saigo was attracted in Satsuma rebellion also be solved also the stigma by the pardon of the Meiji constitution. It became by Satsuma from Centre, proceeded with construction. 0/1898 is completed. (Think statue in Kagoshima City completed a 0/1937 so was allowed in full dress) was made in a yukata, which at that time still a dress of the Meiji government dressing should not. I was also at the beginning of the drama in the 18 has said during the unveiling of the statue, as Mrs. yarn and not like said. Has disappointed his wife thread and should be dressed up when the case was how far production appearing in public, let alone been in yukata. Means that not the villains in the sense that the rude people who show up in yukata in public is not told what uniforms of the Meiji government, we made not like? I think each spoke in a mean or imagine it is fun. Has said is by the way the head is slightly growing assumes to look up from the bottom and then taking the statue down in perspective. So at least have heard the claim that I'm different and really build, as in many historical figures, photos of Saigo himself there was no similar statues make portraits, where no similar discussion with It means I will personally. By the way, the author is Koun Takamura. Satsuma dog tsun has also created different people.

  • I came across this statue inside Ueno park. Realised that he was one of the most influential samurai in Japanese history. If you are in Ueno park, good to look out for it, take a photo and move on.  more »

  • This park is a pleasant reprieve from the bustle of Ameya (meaning perhaps American shopping). These silent historical reminders are there for the few that seek them out to help make sense of what we now see as modern Japan.
  • The man is more interesting than the statue. Saigo is usually taken as standing for principle, was posthumously pardoned by the emperor despite leading a revolution. Katsumoto’s character in Tom Cruise’s The Last Samurai borrows freely from Saigo’s own life.
  • Near ueno station. This statue is symbol of new era japan from edo to meiji
  • beautiful park with hanami started in March ...
  • This statue is located close to Ueno 3153 building. It would be better to have an explanation about the significance of this person, but for some reason I couldn't find it anywhere. So, most people just took photos here with the statue as a background.
