It was a good review, however I would have loved to know how he influenced the society in order to earn that statue.

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.

Though we have a different image of the Last Samurai, this statue, which I tripped over in Ueno Park by accident, really does look more like someone from the late 19th century. The dog indicates a certain gentleness of the fierce warrior. In the late...More

Saigo Takamori was one of the most influential samurai in Japanese history and one of the three great nobles who led the Meiji Restoration. But why did they erect his statute in a casual “yukata” instead of a formal samurai kimono?

This was an interesting piece to Ueno Park. I see that he was a Samurai and later I will read up more on it to fully appreciate the piece. It wasn’t a highlight but not a bad addition to Ueno.

Saigo Takamori was an important person in modern Japan history. You can say he changed the history of Japan. The statue has its special meaning to Japan history lovers. I recommended one should stop by here to see the statue.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
