Neighborhood: Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago.

Even if your not into statues or sculpture, this is impressive and photo doesn't do it justice. Men on the tour liked this!

In a corner of the garden near the Imperial palace is this bronze statue of Kusunoki Masashige, a loyal and high ranking 14th century samurai warrior who served under Emperor Godaigo Tenno.
The statue of the warrior is on his horse and is mounted on a pedestal.

We stood for nearly half an hour admiring this beauty. Not sure if it's the workmanship or the meaning of the statue.

Very close to the Imperial Palace, this statue is a great place for a photo stop. Great piece of art. Also, a convenience store is located next to the statue for quick needs.

In the very southeast corner of the huge park within the Imperial Palace Complex is located this awesome monument of one of the glorious personages of Japan's history.
That is the legendary fourteenth century samurai Kusunoki Masashige. He was the famous warrior, who fought for the Emperor Go - Daigo and was loyal until the end to him. When now speak about the loyalty, they always refer to that patriotic hero. He even received the highest decoration from the Meiji government of Japan in 1880.
The statue itself is very majestic one, depicting the samurai riding on a horse in a very tense and rigid posture, as it shows the time before the battle or in the very moment of the struggle. It was very grand site for me and others ,when we repeatedly strided here in this huge magnificent park.

Kusunoki Masashige was a Japanese samurai warrior who fought for Japan’s emperor in the early 14th century. His bronze statute of riding a horse is in the south-east end of Kokyogaien, facing Nijyu-bashi. Every detail of the sculpture looks so real.

This is a large bronze statue of a samurai on a horse. He was a military commander who lived 1294 to 1336 and defended the emperor against the troops of the Shogunate. He became the epitome of a loyal and faithful servant.
