  • "Saigo Takamori statue' decades, Buri, we've seen. Near Ueno Station, Ueno Park is built. It was very crowded, and from the hero of the NHK Taiga drama "Saigo Takamori" that now is the season. Saigo was regrettable tragedy turned into a new Government as well as katsu kaishu's bakumatsu "Edo Castle bloodless' at the end. Still in Ueno Park are かもしだして a generous appearance and personality. (Whether or not this image is really of? Has a question...)

  • I don't understand exactly where that statue of Saigo Takamori in Ueno is famous in Japan. Along with Shibuya Hachiko, is a typical statue in Tokyo. Is told, don't like the person faces the statue of Saigo's wife sees it, but strong impression of this statue and the famous portrait, Saigo is I can't imagine otherwise. Was told to get ahead when they do throw things (paper ball) and was considered a rebel in the rebellion to this statue at the nose.

  • 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.
  • Man with dog. Quite unique. Good meeting landmark.
  • The statue itself is just ok. Walk around Ueno park and visit the temples nearby.
  • Drink tea and saka accompany with blossomed sakura
  • On Wikipedia it was described as the symbol of Ueno park, but I met difficulty in finding it when I step out from the subway station. Despite this, the statue is interesting.
